What has been nothing but a mere concept in chef Peter Tempelhoff’s mind for the past 22 years has finally come to life in the form of FYN.
Simply titled, FYN is the Afrikaans word for “fine”, which – according to Peter – is “the better half of the word ‘fynbos’” and, as such, the restaurant’s focus is locally inspired dishes with an international twist – taking cues and flavours from Peter’s culinary expeditions overseas.
Executive chef Ashley Moss (Peter’s head chef at Greenhouse for the past four years) heads the kitchen, while Jennifer Hugé, who has been the restaurant manager at La Colombe for the past 14 years, is the general manager.
Located on Church Square at the very top of a building offering a distinct Manhattan feel, and boasting sky-high views of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, FYN is sure to be a culinary experience you won’t want to miss.
