The CCID wishes these new retailers all the best in the Central City. We also chatted to the manager of one of them in our autumn issue of City Views to find out more about what this venue will bring to the Central City.

What is it like working in the Central City?
It’s a lot more vibrant compared to where I have worked previously. Our rooftop position also means that FYN has unrivalled views of Cape Town – there are not many CBDs in the world which boast such incredible views.

Tell us about more about FYN?
FYN is a different kind of fine-dining experience where the lines between the kitchen and restaurant are blurred. The chefs stand shoulder-to-shoulder in our open-plan kitchen, providing diners – particularly those seated at the kitchen counter – with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culinary production unfolding in front of them.

Why should people visit your restaurant?
The FYN experience invites diners to enjoy diverse textures and techniques incorporated in each course, paired with complex and uniquely crafted wines. Fine-dining aficionados who think they’ve seen it all may think again after visiting FYN.
