Get the weekend off to an epicurean start by tucking into Italian classics over Friday lunch at chef-proprietor Giorgio Nava’s original 95 Keerom in Cape Town’s trendy CBD.
Known for uncompromising quality, 95 Keerom has been serving authentic Italian dishes that have stood the test of time for the past 15 years. Taking his lead from classic Milanese cuisine, Chef Giorgio has wowed Cape Town palates with real Italian food at 95 Keerom since 2003. Named after Keerom Street in the heart of the city’s legal district, this top class eatery serves perfectly prepared dishes using the highest quality ingredients with the utmost respect for original Italian recipes. This is old school Italian at its absolute best – delicious, honest food that lets all the ingredients on the plate speak for themselves.
Chef Giorgio was one of the first to introduce a wide selection of fresh and seared beef and fish carpaccio to Cape Town diners, starters that still feature prominently on the 95 Keerom à la carte menu. In addition to delicious antipasti, fresh seasonal salads, velvet textured hand-made pasta, and various fish options, carnivores are spoilt for choice with a string of expertly prepared beef, game, lamb and pork cuts, including the Italian Fiorentina T-Bone.
The stars on the dessert menu include Chef Giorgio’s famous molten white and dark chocolate fondant, Italian chocolate mousse, and delicate meringue wrapped in luscious Marsala Zabaglione crème. His home-made Italian ice cream is another 95 Keerom treasure.
All meals are served with freshly baked focaccia, crunchy parmesan encrusted bread sticks and ciabatta made from a 150 year old “mother” dough from a famous bakery in Milan.
The carefully curated wine list features award winning South African and Italian wines with a fine selection of champagne and Méthode Cap Classique.
95 Keerom is situated at 95 Keerom Street and is open for dinner from Monday to Saturday, and Friday lunch. For bookings call Tel: 021-422 0765 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
