Table Seven 

I finally made it to Table Seven for  their simple deli lunch of the day!  What a treat!   This is a “must do” for any foodie who loves a personalized experience.   Here you can take a seat in front of the chef and chat to him about what he is making over a glass or two of wine!   Note this is a simple lunch of the day concept – there will always be one veg option and one meat or fish option for the day.  Lunch is not meant to be fancy – it is however cooked by an extremely talented chef!   It is real flavours of locally sourced seasonal food.  There were three options on the day we were there – I however spotted the octopus that had arrived for the next days lunch – and Luke agreed to prepare it for us.   I love simple food that is fresh and beautifully cooked – and that is exactly what I got here.   It is my idea of heaven to be able to actually taste the flavours of each dish.  I loved our lunch!    There are many sides to Table Seven!  Luke and Katie use this space as their business home base.   They do lunch daily, cater for functions from here and book the table out for events. This is perfect for a birthday party or a small work event – you can book a Chef’s Table of up to 20 people and they will design the menu and drinks around your interests.     In addition they will be doing shared table evenings where you can book to join others for dinner.   These will be on random dates – so if you are keen you will need to watch their facebook for details on dates that can be booked.    Check out their facebook NOTE that it is best to check if they are doing lunch on the day as Luke also caters for events and does private chef jobs – so make a booking to ensure that they are there on the day that you head over there!    Note also that this is NOT in the city – it is in an area called Salt River which is an area that is on the fringe of the city – so it is about 20 minutes away from the city if there is not too much traffic.  (Photo credit – the last photo below has been provided by Table Seven)  The address for lunch is -Table SevenUnit C5, Salt Orchard,  Salt River.   Tel no (+27) 082 588 7804 (Chef Luke)
