Bocca on Bree

Burrata, the darling of the Eat Out magazine award machine, is coming to Bree Street. Bocca (mouth) will open on Bree in August according to its tongue, Neil Grant (below), who was pairing Nederburg wines with curry at Bombay Brasserie at the Taj Hotel last night.

Bocca opens in the erstwhile lair of Rael Levitt of Auction Alliance infamy, a different kind of mouth, who wrecked the SA wine estate auction business after selling and then not sellingĀ Dave King’s Quoin Rock estate to Wendy Appelbaum, queen of Chenin Blanc. A saga which is begging for public exposure. Mandy Wiener, where are you?

Bocca on Bree confirms Bree as the heart of Cape Town’s culinary scene with Liam Tomlin, La Parada, Birds, Orinoco, Jason’s Bakery, Lucky Fish, Clarke’s Bar and Dining Room, Cafe Frank, Latitude 33, Odyssey Gastropub and &Union all on the drag.

Bocca will feature Neil’s hitech signature pizza oven on the pavement, a boon to hungry shoppers at Paul Smith. And handy for Eat Out luvvies in their nerve centre at New Media House on… Bree Street. Bonus!

How long before we have a Best of Bree festival?
