Brunch & Mimosas In Birdhaven
"The brunch concept, a combination of breakfast and lunch is already popular in South Africa but adding bottomless bubbles to the mix is a global trend," says Hodes. "Bottomless bubbles and brunch are incredibly popular in countries like New York, Melbourne, London and even parts of the Middle East," he adds.
Restaurants have been some of the hardest hit establishments during the pandemic, so finding ways to trade and keep customers safe has been critical. With night-time trade limited, Hodes and Simon wanted to give customers an opportunity to be together outside safely during the day.
A seasoned chef, now turned restaurant owner, Simon recalls the inspiration for the idea. "Having spent some time in Florida USA, I saw how much guests enjoyed bottomless mimosas and the incredible Southern Hospitality. When I returned to South Africa, I wanted to setup a similar concept."
Now having partnered with Hodes and looking for fresh ideas to allow customers to enjoy their food and courtyard, the duo saw the perfect opportunity to bring bottomless brunch to Birdhaven.
"While we are creating a new menu to kick off our brunches, there will be some old favourites," adds Simon. "We want to elevate palates and excite customers with dishes they will come back for again and again."
The menu will comprise hearty brunch items with a classic French twist, designed to pair beautifully with traditional and blushing Mimosas prepared naturally with L’Ormarins Cap Classique.
"Having L’Ormarins on board is a real coup," says Hodes. They are a well-established and loved wine maker and their Cap Classique wines are perfect for the concept. "We believe strongly in the power of collaboration to ensure an incredible customer experience."
"At Anthonij Rupert Wyne we always look for innovative ways to best share our products. Happy people eating great food with friends and family in a beautiful sunny courtyard with our L’Ormarins Cap Classique wines on tap is the perfect opportunity," says Winemaker Zanie Viljoen.
