The vibrant restaurant on the Camps Bay strip is hosting a four-course meal, paired with Moët & Chandon vintages, with Hennessy cognac providing the nightcap.

Earlier this year, The 41 hosted Good France as part of a global celebration of French culinary heritage. Now, this vibrant Camps Bay restaurant is again offering diners a taste of French gastronomy with its champagne and cognac food pairing.

Executive chef Wesley Peters (formerly of Asoka), will serve an exciting four-course meal, and each of the first three courses will be paired with a glass of Moët & Chandon. Two of the three glasses will be from the exceptional Moët & Chandon 2008 and 2009 vintages.

Dessert will be accompanied by a glass of Hennessy cognac. Derived from the Ugni Blanc grape variety, and first distilled 254 years ago, Hennessy cognac is also a proud testament to French viticultural traditions.

What’s on the menu?

About The 41

The 41 Camps Bay

The 41 was opened on the Camps Bay strip in October 2016, by French restaurateurs Gilles Blanc and his partner Nicolas Da Costa. The duo have managed a number of world-class establishments across Singapore, Laos and Australia, and their international influences are evident in the restaurant’s diverse array of offerings, which range from pizza and salads to burgers and seafood.

Add impressive cocktails, a terrace with panoramic views of the beach, and live entertainment at night, and it’s no wonder The 41 is one of the standout spots in Camps Bay’s high-energy hub.
