The best view of the city of Johannesburg is definitely, without a doubt, from Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff. Undeniably, it is my favourite place to soak up the view. With a cocktail and some delicious food, especially when it is Jacaranda season.
To celebrate summer and Jacaranda season, Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff have launched two Jacaranda inspired offerings. These offerings are exclusive to Flames restaurant – the Jacaranda Aperitivo Afternoons and the Jacaranda Friday Lunch.
Jacaranda Aperitivo Afternoons
From R275 per person, Flames invites guests to sample the signature G&T or one of the four bespoke cocktails crafted by local mixologists –Molecular Bars. Round off the experience with a choice of two canapés or sharing plates. Indulge in the skillfully devised menu by Chef Keith Frisley, which includes baked purple figs with Brie cheese and hazel nuts; and salmon tataki, avocado and coriander pesto served with crudité, to name few. The Jacaranda Aperitivo Afternoon will be running from Friday 4 October until Sunday 8 December 2019 between 15:00 and 18:00 at Flames Restaurant.
Friday Jacaranda Lunch
For a gastronomical experience, Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff welcomes patrons to the Friday Jacaranda Lunch, served between 11h00 and 15h00. At R595 per person, Flames presents a buffet of seasonal cold appetizers followed by a-la-carte main course and a selection of desserts from our master pastry chefs. With drinks packages offered to large groups, the Friday Jacaranda Lunch is the ideal choice for an end-of-the-year celebration that will not be forgotten. The Jacaranda Lunch will be running every Friday until 6 December 2019.
If you don’t want to take part in the two Jacaranda specials, you can also visit Pre-View bar or Après Spa. Here ChefDaniel Payne has specially prepared a tempting array of dishes and cocktails to complement the season.
I cannot wait to celebrate the Jacaranda season at Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff. Indulging in a Jacaranda Gin cocktail overlooking the purple canopy of the city and slowly unwinding.
