Browns caught out red-handed

Illegal fish of the day is just one of the things that fails to measure up at award-winning Sandton perennial.

Browns of Rivonia, recently voted Best Business Lunch Venue in Johannesburg for the sixth year running and winner of the coveted Diners Club Winelist of the Year award, gets the nod because it boasts “a specially designed Sunday lunch menu”. Which, according to the pay-for-punt site, is “great news for all those who have eaten one too many dry, boring, overpriced buffets”.

The restaurant’s website confirms that Sunday lunch is available and reveals that Browns backs the World Wildlife Fund-endorsed Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative, the aim of which is to arm consumers with the knowledge to combat the “unsustainable harvest of the world’s oceans [which] has led to the depletion, and in some cases collapse, of many of the world’s major fish stocks”.
