Taj Cape Town’s Mint Restaurant Gets Magical Makeover
Taj Cape Town’s Mint restaurant is set to sizzle with a new look and a revitalized menu, in time for the Cape’s sunny summer season. Mint, which spills out into St George’s Mall from the cosy confines of Cape Town’s most luxurious city hotel, offers a host of all-day dining options for hotel guests and visitors, alike. The makeover will be in two phases. Phase One will see the unpretentious dining room extended onto the Mall with a new Terrace, offering comfortable couch seating, suspended umbrellas and a modern bistro-inspired feel, making it the perfect spot for a summer cocktail or fabulous dinner. The Mint Terrace will take the ‘inside, outside’ - shaded by the Mall’s trees and highlighted by pops of colour, the Terrace promises to be the best place in the city to relax and people-watch on the vibrant St George’s Mall. It’s the perfect ‘First Thursdays’ rendezvous spot after a stroll around the city, to enjoy the sights and sounds of the monthly Night Market over a welcome meal. Phase Two will see the restaurant’s interior invigorated with splashes of cool colour and chic décor to match the relaxed atmosphere of the Mint Terrace. The internationally-inspired menu will also have a fresh look soon, with Executive Chef David Tilly and his team working to deliver an accessible, comfort food-driven offering that reflects the cosmopolitan nature of Taj Cape Town. The unpretentious menu will offer an additional pick-me-up for people living, working and visiting the city, with an array of Mediterranean, Indian and Braai-inspired lunch buffet options between October and December. In addition to the current menu, Mint also offer a range of daily specials all of which include a 500ml Devil’s Peak draught beer, or glass of house wine. Mint’s revitalization is currently underway and Phase One – the opening of the Mint Terrace - is expected to be completed shortly, with a dazzling opening event scheduled for 18 September.
