The Butcher Block is a Johannesburg culinary destination that needs no introduction. This “Executive Grill” has been created to tempt the palates of guests in a stylish space, with exceptional service that makes the whole experience eminently satisfying whether you’re looking for a place to conduct a lunchtime meeting or if you’re in need of the casual ambiance after a long day at the office.
Walking into Butcher Block is enough to let all inhibitions fall away. Word of advice, go there hungry! Their fillet, rump and T-bone steaks are the stuff of legends – and don’t forget the fab sauces. Every steak served at the Butcher Block undergoes a specialised ageing process to mature the tastiest and most tender cuts. The meat is supplied by Karan Beef, one of South Africa’s top meat suppliers, and only AAA Grade cuts are served. The Butcher Block menu however does ensure every taste is catered for, offering chicken, fish and vegetarian options alongside the star attraction – exceptional quality steaks.
So what menu items should the visiting gastronome look out for? "We are first and foremost a steakhouse and would always recommend one of our choice cuts," says Manuel Savic, the man behind Butcher Block. "Our chefs would recommend a favourite among our regulars, the camembert and bacon rump, or the Entrecote maître d’. The homemade Amarula chocolate cheesecake is exceptional, and our coffee is the finest blend. In addition, the extensive wine cellar also caters to every palate"
