Le Quartier Français and The Franschhoek Affair

From the 25th to the 27th of June 2010 Franschhoek – through the intimate Franschhoek Affair – will be introducing visitors to Franschhoek’s hidden gems.

We, at Le Quartier Français, have put together a few exceptional experiences for visitors. In fact these experiences have proved so popular that the majority of those offered on Friday the 25th of June 2010 are already fully booked (and therefore not included in the list below).

If you’re interested in attending please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!

P.S. For detailed information on each experience please visit events section on the Le Quartier Français Facebook Fan Page.

What are you doing tomorrow?

The mountains, surrounding the Franschhoek Valley, are covered with snow and there is a distinct nip in the air today. This is perfect weather when you consider that tomorrow is a public holiday.

If you’d like to do something delectable tomorrow why not join us, at iCi, for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Actually there is nothing to stop you from enjoying all three of those meals at iCi tomorrow!

We will have our crackling fires going so you know it’s going to be snug. We will also be offering our delicious Winter Warmer Menu.

iCi Winter Warmer Menu 2010

See you – in iCi – tomorrow!

P.S. If you’re in the neighbourhood why don’t you pop into IS Art (the new Le Quartier Français gallery)? Our new exhibition is proving to be very popular!

P.P.S. On the way home you could also visit Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant and the Farm Grocer to sample, or buy-to-take-home,  Neil’s range of 2010 World Cup inspired sausages.

TV in iCi for the duration of the 2010 World Cup!

Our casual bistro – iCi – will be screening World Cup 2010 matches for the duration of the tournament!

This means that, starting this Friday the 11th of June 2010, iCi is going to be the place in Franschhoek to catch up on all things football.

Our crackling fires will keep away those winter chills and the delicious full or bar-snacks iCi menu will ensure that you never go hungry. Lend your country’s football team your full support and watch a game, or four, in iCi.

P.S. Don’t forget BaaFana Burger Friday.

Every Friday – until the end of World Cup – you can enjoy a BaaFana Burger, chips, a glass of Miss Molly wine and the free Friday night movie in our Screening Room!

Remember only  30, of Lamb Burger’s Football mad nephews, make an appearance so it’s first come first serve.

World Top 50 Announcement

This year has seen the Tasting Room place 31 overall (6 places higher than last year’s 37th place). In fact Margot was the only female chef to achieve a place in the 2010 World Top 50.

We’ve once again found ourselves in fine local company with La Colombe, another South African restaurant, appearing at number 12 in the top 50 rankings. They also clinched the title of 2010 Best Restaurant in Africa and the Middle East. Congratulations La Colombe!

This year marks six consecutive years in the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants rankings and, for us, this is phenomenal and in many ways unbelievable. Every year global food and fine-dining standards improve exponentially and the competition, this year, was incredibly stiff. We consider it a huge honour to have once again been included. It is also fantastic that another South African restaurant has again – along with us – been recognized and it reinforces our belief that South Africa, as a food destination, continues to impress on the global culinary stage.
