SŸN has been conceptualised by the two chefs who masterminded the concept of Gåte in Stellenbosch, the two being Warwick King (The Stack, Delaire Graff) and Rikku Ó’Donnchü.
The restaurant is situated on Bree street, on the third floor above Italian destination restaurant Villa 47. The name of the restaurant is pronounced like 'sin' but means great expansion, which the duo plans on doing a lot of this year.
SŸN at 47 is a ‘permanent pop-up’, running from July to October, when it will close in order for them to open their permanent restaurant also in Cape Town's City Bowl.
Rikku's resumé includes the likes of Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck and Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, as well the godfather of modern cookery himself, Marco Pierre White. Ó’Donnchü has also starred on the hit BBC program Masterchef: The Professionals, and has had collaborations with Lay’s, Yuppiechef and Robertson’s spices.
At SŸN you should expect the unexpected.
