Top honours for steakhouse

Greg Baxs Rare Grill was declared South Africas Steakhouse Champion.

Rare Grill in Kenilworth has taken top honours in this year’s Wolftrap Steakhouse Championships.

Over 150 steakhouses competed to become South Africa’s Steakhouse Champion but Rare Grill took first place with Little Havana in Umhlanga Rocks as the runner up and The Local Grill in Parktown North taking third place.

In the first round during May, the public voted via Facebook for their favourite steakhouse.

The Top Ten Finalists, as voted by the public, were then visited unannounced during June by expert judges led by well-known MasterChef, Pete Goffe-Wood, who assessed the restaurants according to a strict score sheet that focused on the steak on the plate, as well as looking at the side dishes and the quality of the hospitality.

Ultimately it was debut entrant Rare Grill in Kenilworth that claimed top honours and this marks the first Cape winner in the five years of The Wolftrap Steakhouse Championships.
