13 September, 2019 | Tryn, a vibrant new restaurant has opened at Steenberg with cherished Constantia chef, Kerry Kilpin, at the helm.
Emerging from the chrysalis after the complete transformation of Catharina’s Restaurant which closed four months ago after 21 years, Tryn is a refreshed, youthful and stylish space that appeals with leisurely charm and inspiring cuisine.
Dedicated to Steenberg’s 17th century founder, Catharina Ras, or Tryn as she was known to her nearest and dearest, the new restaurant is contemporary in spirit with delicious food, bold accents and modern textures.
Tryn’s personality is splashed on gutsy ruby and jade walls in the private dining areas, and rich burnt orange and mustard tones in the soft furnishings add scatterings of her feisty character in the main dining room. The inviting bar beckons after-work encounters either indoors or on the outstretched terrace overlooking the Steenberg vineyards.
Chef Kerry’s menu is accessible and easy to navigate with ample choice of deliciously prepared dishes. Meat lovers will find all their favourite cuts, while vegetarians can savour the chef’s signature brand of traditional and exotic flavours and textures. Her passion for ethically sourced fish also shines through on the Tryn menu.
It’s Chef Kerry’s “sweet merriment” that will really tempt you. True to her personal style, she has infused some unexpected savoury notes such as basil, coriander, thyme and cardamom into her desserts.
Expect a sensory narrative for a refined dining experience and envision Tryn flirting and swaying amongst the guests, lavishing her role as a hostess in a space that conveys her persona.
Tryn is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Find out more here.
