Sevruga Restaurant Opening.
Waterfront's Newest Hangout Spot.
Sevruga Restaurant. Seating 350 People. Or 200 really fat people. Maybe even 500 really thin people, I'm not too sure.
It's Monday, and what better way to spend it than to look at photos we took a few days earlier, when we checked out Sevruga restaurant in the V&A Waterfront? Sevruga promises to be the newest hangout spot for models, celebrities and hangers on like Danny K, and is situated where Cantina Tequila used to be. You know, Cantina - the place you occasionally went to on a Saturday night, where you got pissed and hit on by drunk foreign older women? Yeah, that place. Good times.
... Whoa there, I just re-read that last bit, I don't mean the drunk foreign older women actually pissed on you, I mean you GOT pissed and then they HIT on you... just thought I'd clear that up.
What was I saying?
Sevruga have taken over and have done quite the redecorating job. Offering a fine dining experience - think duck, goat's cheese and sushi rather than nachos and hot chips. It has a bit of a Beluga vibe, which is no surprise seeing as it's owned by the same guy.
Anyhoo, enough with the banter, here with some random pics taken from the evening.
The Entrance: This is the covered entrance to Sevruga. A few bottles of wine later, I would do a seductive pole dance for The Girlfriend over here, before I was ushered away.
Cracking The Whip: We kept the waitrons and staff busy, with drinks, food orders and other special requests throughout the evening, as we're quite bossy that way, and it made us feel really rather about ourselves. To his credit, our waiter was pretty jacked up, and even performed the Macarena when we asked him to, which amazed us as that dance died out in the mid-nineties, and there are only 79 people left in the world who can still do the Macarena, 1 of which was at Sevruga that night.
The Bathrooms: Which look like celebrity dressing rooms. Nice.
Hey Look: As previously mentioned, Sevruga is a great spot to see celebrities, models, and other beautiful and famous people. Here, Bobby flips out at the sight of his idol, SABC 3 continuity presenter Jason. His joy was short lived however, as he realised that it wasn't Jason but was actually a large wooden plank, something which is commonly mistaken for the SABC 3 continuity presenter.
Hey Look (Part Deux): As we have just touched on, Sevruga is a great spot to bump into well-known entertainment and business figures. Here, Some Other Guy looks on excitedly at the news that Kurt Darren has just taken a seat at the bar. His dream of meeting the Afrikaans pop sensation were dashed though, when he realised that the "Kurt Darren" at the bar, was actually just an investment banker from Vredehoek.
The Girlfriend: A couple of older gentlemen kept staring at her during dinner and taking sneaky photographs with their cellphones, until I pointed out to them that she wasn't reality television star Kim Kardashian, it was actually just The Girlfriend, showing a bit of cleavage.
Fine Dining: As one would expect, the hostesses are all spectacularly hot. Here, Some Other Guy's attention wanders from his sashimi dish to the absolute belter in the low cut dress.
The Stock Pot: The stock pot in the kitchen is arguably the biggest stock pot in the world, with the capacity to hold several thousand litres. Apparently, the pot will also be used for anyone who tries to "dine and dash", or for someone who doesn't tip appropriately, so be warned.
In summary, an enjoyable night was had by all. A night at Sevruga offers the finest cuisine, great wine, and good times. It officially opens to the public this week so confirm how trendy and cool you are and pay them a visit.
Call them at 021 421 5134.
Where: Shop 4, Quay 5, Waterfront (Where Cantina Tequila used to be)
