This winter, Lapo’s Kitchen ensures you’re left not wanting for great food and the perfect backdrop to combat your Sunday blues.


Welcoming the change of season in style, Chef Lapo Magni has a few tricks up his sleeve to ensure winter in Cape Town has you spoilt for choice with his innovative offering of events and ateliers to keep the gourmands smiling all the way to summer and beachfront sundowners.


The colder weather brings with it the chance for heartier food fare and crackling fires. In the newest addition to SA’s foodie capital feature list of hot and happening new restaurants, is Lapo’s Kitchen in Newlands. Recently making the historic Josephine Mill home, this Italian celebrity chef has laid roots alongside a flowing stream where the outdoor and indoor fire, constantly lit and sizzling away, pay homage to the country that has stolen his heart and inspired by his authentic Italian food heritage, to now also include a fusion take on a genre he’s dubbed as ‘Afro-Italian’


First up and on the menu, are the social dining evenings that have propelled Lapo’s Kitchen into the spotlight. Perfect for connecting with fellow foodies whilst enjoying a gourmet feast, these weekly events make socializing in winter an entertainer’s dream cheat. Sans the dishes.


June also brings with it the next Symbiotic series event set for Sunday the 30th June, combining a morning yoga class hosted by the talented and much-loved Joelle Sleebos, followed by a hearty (and healthy) brunch prepared by Chef Lapo. This series caters to a perfectly-balanced approach to winter weekends in the mother city, so be sure to secure your yoga mat and a seat at the long table by booking in advance. Space is limited.*


Recently launched as the newest addition to the line up, was the introduction of ‘Lazy Sundays’ by Lapo’s Kitchen. Created as an ‘open-door’ initiative, where no booking is required. These events cater to combat any winter blues, with tapas boards and a selection of drinks flowing freely in Lapo’s new space all Sunday long. Great tunes, a relaxed atmosphere and genuine warm welcomes await at the next ‘Lazy Sunday’ set for Sunday 7th July.


Last on our event radar, we have exciting news of a brand new mid-week event soon to launch at Lapo’s Kitchen this August. Dubbed as ‘APERITIVO’; this post work, pre-dinner event is set to offer the perfect collaborative space for an Aperol Spritz and a few ‘off-the-menu’ special items with the friends or colleagues post work. 


Follow @LaposKitchen on social media for more information but be prepared for Tuesdays to never be the same again. Launching 30th July 2019!


Available dates for the next few winter weeks are all available online and bookings are accepted via the Dineplan app via the website.
