Yesterday afternoon I was lucky enough to be amongst the guests presented with Societi Bistro’s new autumn menu ahead of its launch next week. Once again chef Stefan Marais turned out a few gems.
There are items that are classics to the restaurant and these remain on the menu throughout the year. Then there are items introduced periodically, making good use of the best available seasonal produce.
Stefan is committed to ethical and sustainable farming practices, and sources his chicken and pork from organic, free range farmers. This may affect the price slightly but adds a tremendous amount of value.
On an extremely hot and un-autumnal day, we sat outside on the terrace and this is how it looked:
Looking back on what we ate, the dishes that stood out for me and the ones I will want to eat again are: The liver parfait, the ox tongue (this was the first time I’v eaten tongue that I enjoyed), the pancetta risotto and the fettuccini lemone. I really enjoyed the venison bourguignon and the lamb shank.
