A veritable honeypot for foodies, Central One is locally known as a delicious up-market eatery with a South African twist. Now, following a comprehensive redesign, Central One’s welcoming new interiors are set to further enrich the dining experience at the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel, Sandton Johannesburg. Discover more about its sleek the interior design below.
Warm design with luxe touches
Step into the redesigned Central One restaurant and you’ll feel right at home. From the earthy color palette that oozes warmth and sophistication to the use of raw natural materials like stone and wood – everything in the space is designed to make guests immediately feel comfortable and at ease.
Mixed in with copper and gold details, the restaurant has an undeniably luxurious feel to it − which is heightened when the light passes through the room. To further accentuate the romance of the space, cozy booth seating has been installed around the room, making it the perfect setting for date nights or family meals – from breakfast through lunch to dinner.
Fresh South African flavors
Just like its interiors, Central One’s menu is a careful balance of influences. Dishes like the slow-braised karoo lamb shank or the pork belly sound deceptively simple but come prepared with plenty of South African zest. Recently appointed executive chef Tarryn Coetzee is at the helm of all this. She adds: “Being a chef is not just a job to me: It’s a passion that I have grown into and I am still growing day by day.”
Always making use of the freshest local ingredients, the menu offers something for every kind of palate, and at any time of day. From the early morning Super Breakfast buffet, to lunch and snacks, and through to dinner, this central restaurant should be on every traveler’s restaurant bucket list.
Skyline views of Johannesburg
Nestled on the third floor of the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel, Sandton Johannesburg, the restaurant overlooks the concrete Johannesburg skyline. Sandton is known as the richest square mile in Africa, and Central One is just a short walk from the Gautrain station.
Once you spot the hotel, you’ll be drawn in by its large pool deck, which offers 180-degree views. Throughout, sophisticated style takes center stage – without ever sacrificing comfort and its signature warm atmosphere. But it’s not only the restaurant that deserves a visit: The trendy poolside bar is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner or a refreshment before heading in for your meal.
