Protégé at Le Quartier Français: Sunday Dinner Special


The perfect denouement to a weekend in the Winelands.

The special R65 per plate
About As its name implies, Protégé provides young chefs an opportunity to hone their skills under the eyes of a skilled maestro. Situated at Le Quartier Français, the restaurant (designed by Rotem Shachar and Megan Bon) is arranged around a central show kitchen, with alfresco dining areas at both ends. Proprietor Scot Kirton (who also co-owns La Colombe, La Petite Colombe, Foxcroft and Epice) wanted to create a space that locals could call home, while enjoying top-quality, seasonally driven comfort food.
What’s on the menu? An array of tantalising small plates, such as chargrilled sourdough, spiced chicken drippings, biltong and olives; umami or champagne-poached oysters; edamame beans with sriracha and sesame; Korean-fried chicken; Asian pork roti; gamefish sashimi with coconut, shallot sambal and crispy leek; steamed mussels in a spicy Thai broth; wagyu potsticker; beetroot tart; and pea risotto. For dessert, there’s salted chocolate with cocoa nibs and passionfruit, or berries, waffles, tonka and lime.
Drinks The drinks (also R65 a glass) include a house G&T, as well as Kloof Street Chenin Blanc and Kloof Street Swartland Rouge.
