Arugula Bistro owners aim to open crowd-funded nose-to-tail restaurant

Arugula Bistro in Bellville has built up a loyal following over the past five years. Now, Anouchka Horn and Neil Swart have set their sights on a new goal: a boutique restaurant in Cape Town’s CBD serving a changing menu of nose-to-tail dishes.

Called the Belly of the Beast, the envisioned 20-seater restaurant will be an intimate space where Anouchka and Neil can offer a more personal fine-dining experience with wine pairing.

The menu will change frequently and be based on what is seasonally available. Photo supplied.

To get their project off the ground, the restaurateurs have set up a crowd-funding page with Thundafund. Funding options include advance booking a table at the restaurant, cooking classes, burger specials, as well as big ticket items like year-end functions and weddings at the restaurant, once it opens.

Good luck, guys!

The location of the restaurant has yet to be revealed, but Anouchka and Neil say it will be in Cape Town's CBD. Photo supplied.
