A new Japanese restaurant opens its doors at Delaire Graff Estate in Stellenbosch this month. HOSEKI, which means jewel, a nod to Laurence Graff OBE, founder of Graff Diamonds and owner of Delaire Graff, is an incredible destination that offers wine, art, cuisine, a villa and spa.
The restaurant will be in the space originally occupied by Indochine Restaurant and opens at the same time as the refurbished Garden, Luxury and Presidential Lodges, and Spa.
The eatery is managed by Nick Cloete and headed by Chef Virgil Kahn, who spent many years in Asia, including Japan, learning about the culture and cuisine before returning to South Africa in 2009. He worked at the famed Japanese restaurant Nobu before joining the Delaire Graff Estate team to establish Indochine in 2012.
