Chef Liam Tomlin is a doyen of the restaurant industry in the Cape, owning Chefs Warehouses in Franschhoek, Constantia and at Tintswalo, as well as Thali.
Chef Liam let go of all his restaurant interests in Heritage Square on Bree Street, including his very first Chefs Warehouse, earlier this year.
The Bailey heritage building belongs to Tintswalo Lodges, a partner at the Chef’s Warehouse Tintswalo at the foot of Chapman’s Peak. The new restaurant operation is named after Tomlin’s dog.
Today Tomlin opens The Bailey, a three-storey operation with a ground floor Bakery Café and Champagne Bar, a patisserie with fragrant teas and coffees. On the second floor is a Brasserie, with a ‘menu of iconic dishes and superb wines’. The third floor has a terrace, and is designed as a unique wine and whiskey bar.
The second and third floor operations will open on 14 June. Head Chef is Jacques Grové, previously at Chefs Warehouse Tintswalo and Beau Constantia.
The Bailey is modelled on The Wolseley in London.
