For celebratory dinners or business deals, Johannesburg’s fine-dining scene is set to sizzle this October. French-born Galmiche has clocked up four Michelin stars over a 30-year career cooking in high-end restaurants across the United Kingdom so far, and is today the culinary force behind 190 Queen’s Gate at London’s iconic hotel The Gore.
With an emphasis on local produce and seasonality, The Gold Room by Daniel Galmiche will dish up artful plates of modern French-Mediterranean cuisine with an Asian accent, says Galmiche. ‘For me [produce] is the key… We never compromise with the food.’
Although Galmiche won’t be based in Johannesburg full time, he’ll curate the menu, consult on changes and work closely with a local head chef who will manage the restaurant day to day. Watch this space. qsl-sa.com/restaurant
