A dash of decadence: Fine dining at Aurelia’s Restaurant!
Now, we know that dining in Johannesburg is a real treat, there’s an amazing selection of places to choose from and there’s a lot to offer the general foodie, but, what happens when you want to kick it up a notch? Say it’s date night and you really need to impress “Bae” or you’ve got an extremely important business meeting and you need to impress. Today on GoTrend we talk about the ever stylish, Aurelia’s Restaurant in the D’oreale Grande hotel at Emperors Palace!
“Always innovative and constantly evolving to meet the high expectations of its discerning clientele, the ever-popular Aurelia’s restaurant, extends along the northern faēade of the award-winning five star Peermont D’oreale Grande hotel at Emperors Palace, has undergone an elegant, modern makeover.”
The restaurant focuses on food that fits the good life, offering a wide range of menu types and a selection for any occasion. We met up with the Hello Joburg Team and some other influential Taste Makers for the evening and tried out one of their epic “Degustation Menu Courses.” The new chef in town, Justin Jonah: “The Aurelia’s team include Chef De Cuisine, Justin Jonah; Restaurant Manager, Richard Day; and Assistant Restaurant Managers, Soloman Mudau and Favourite Mbalane. Chef Justin Jonah has been a Senior Chef at Emperors Palace for the past two years but has been making a name for himself on the South African food scene for over 12 years. Justin brings boundless creativity and energy to the kitchen and is determined to create a signature style that is undeniably Aurelia’s.”
There was definitely an amazing array of food on hand, take a look at some of these and let us know what you think:
The Degustation menu holds significance because it’s paired with some of Aurelia’s most finest wines on offer. The nine course menu is something that everyone should experience whether you’re a raging foodie or not! The idea of a fine dining setting at brilliant prices from R600+ per person is fantastic for a different kind of night out, plus it doesn’t hurt to be surrounded by the beauty of Emperors Palace. It definitely set the scene for a romantic night out or a luxurious surrounding for important events.
