The Concept behind Grain


When cutting fabric, a tailor cuts with the grain to make sure the material does not fray. This also ensures the garment created from this fabric continues to wear well. A tailor may be in possession of high quality materials and equipment, but without the necessary skills, that fabric as well as the garment created will be ruined.

When we took the decision to open this restaurant we wanted to pay respect to the ingredients that are fundamental to producing a high quality dish. Yet, in an era of companies looking to automate and possibly bypass human intervention, we also wanted to honour the marvelous skill sets that we have as a human race.

We chose the theme of a tailor because we found several analogies with the restaurant world. We source the best possible materials to make sure our end result is of the highest quality, we both use several tools to achieve this, we have several process that we need to undertake to arrive to the end result, and we do this with the single aim of giving our guests the best possible experience.

Our greatest analogy though is the importance of the skilled people that are working to deliver this experience. Just like a tailor and his team, our people must be skilled to make the best use of the ingredients and the equipment that we have. Cutting fabric with the grain is a detail, and when we entertain our guests, whatever we do, it is this detail that we are after.
