“Marble has always been a beautiful and luxurious space with impeccable attention to detail, but we work hard to ensure it stays current,” Kyriacou said. “Our key features still remain — from our custom local art to the intricately stylised bull heads, and decadent linework representing the muscles and rib cages (reminiscent of butterflied beef) but we’ve given the whole restaurant a facelift.”
The new additions range from the almost unnoticeable bits of housekeeping such as the redoing of the restaurant floor and reupholstering of the furniture, to the impressive new Arabesco marble bar counter and the new brass bulkhead that sits above the pass.
Other noteworthy changes include the gorgeous new carpeting of the private dining rooms, raised dining area and chefs table alcove. The pattern designed by Sarita Immelman of GRID riffs on the bull’s head and rib cage motif, which can be found along the back of the bar and, as eagle-eyed diners might be aware, within the design of the ceiling cornices.
