Get ready for herbaceous flavours and intricately-plated dishes at Grei – Chef Candice Philip’s new restaurant at the Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa in Jo’burg. “Grei”, which loosely translated from Portuguese, means “a society of people”, blends Philip’s love of unusual pairings and the hue of the moment.
“Essentially, grey is colour without colour. This has been a huge inspiration in developing the look and feel of the space and menu,” she says. So what’s on the menu?

Philip says they’ve always worked with produce from the hotel’s garden, focusing fi rat on organic and heirloom produce and later looking to the proteins. “For me, the herbs are often the little things that are overlooked. They not only bring an enticing aroma to the food, but also add great fl avour and colour.”

The menu is available as six-courses paired with a combination of international and local wines. There will also be a non-alcoholic pairing option, as well as vegetarian and pescatarian menus.
