Stepbrothers restaurant welcomed to the Mother City

Family strikes a different chord for many people; some songs are upbeat and happy while others have a more nostalgic sound. Stepbrothers is somewhere between the two, marrying an authentic Italian experience with a unique spin on what trendy looks like in the bustling Mother City. Barry Fuchs and Gionathan Vessio, lifelong best friends united by a zest for life, share the same appreciation of comedy, spectacular food and Will Ferrell. Hence, Stepbrothers.

This restaurant, bar and deli is home to an atmosphere of tradition, sentimentality and fun. Gionathan is the mastermind behind the home-cooked Italian food, inspired by his grandmother, and he trains his kitchen staff personally. The best part? There are family secrets in the recipes he creates! You’ll find a scrumptious array of foods from platters, pizzas and pastas to tantalising mains, cocktails and lip-licking desserts. If you’re up early enough to grab a coffee before work, this is where you should fuel up on caffeine and fresh bread.

Barry is the business brain behind the Stepbrother’s brand, and with his experience in the catering industry there is no doubt we’ll see exciting developments from this eatery under his leadership in the months ahead. To further their aim of creating a welcoming atmosphere, you’ll be happy to hear that they offer vegan and vegetarian-friendly dishes as well as wheat and gluten-free pasta dishes. In addition to these Italian classics with optional alteration to accommodate dietary restrictions, there are some lekker local dishes including braaied lamb chops and T-bone steak.

The space is varied and structured so that you can lounge on couches, sit at the bar, pick a table or even dine on the sidewalk. Stepbrothers is available for private events and you can have a menu tailored to your needs. You are welcome to book via SMS or Whatsapp on 083 557 3184. Treat the family and take them to meet the Stepbrothers.

A final chorus? You can tear up the Salsa dance floor on a Saturday night. These colourful evenings are hosted by Sensagrij Dance, so make sure you don’t miss one by following their events here.
