Cape Quarter in Green Point has a new king of the restaurant jungle. It’s called Lou Lou’s and it promises to be a roaring success. This local bar, lounge and eatery, opened in May 2017 by owner Sergio Zurini, guarantees delicious food and live music with a new flare. Sergio says he loves the energy surrounding the people in Green Point and it’s an awesome buzz to be around.
So nice they named it twice
Lou Lou’s is all about class. They say you can’t buy happiness, but at Lou Lou’s you can buy class – sometimes it’s served on a plate, sometimes it plays on the stage and sometimes it’s in a glass. Whether you’re lapping up carefully crafted cocktails or devouring flavour-filled mains, you’ll feel like you’re the life of the party.
Dress up and get down
While Cape Town is known for its laid back attitude to pretty much everything, Lou Lou’s will entice you to throw on something nice. Their attire is described as “dressy” which means you should look a little fancier than your Saturday relax-at-home pants. Don’t panic men, you don’t have to wear a frock!
What’s cooking, good looking?
You can snack at the bar, share tapas between friends or indulge in rich desserts. If you’re just there to have a romantic drink for two, order a glass from their fabulous champagne selection. If you plan to stay a while, try this array of dishes to satisfy your appetite: crumbed mushroom tapas, followed by beef fillet with Porcini sauce and finished with a tantalising passion fruit panna cotta.
Chef Jason Kosmos uses only fresh seasonal ingredients and has international experience in the culinary industry. He has worked in France, London and Italy to name a few, and this diverse range of influences comes through in his beautiful dishes of interesting flavours. Rumour has it, the seared tuna is Sergio’s favourite dish off the menu.
Green Point has a myriad of restaurants where you can wine and dine, but Lou Lou’s stands out as a welcome addition with an upmarket edge. No time to stay? Grab a coffee on the way. Looking for a good time? DJ Bryan Farrow is on at nine (check their Facebook page regarding the music line-up just in case). Lastly, it’s a delightful cove to shelter you from the colder days in the Cape.
