Sanctuary at The Grace
December 2000 The Grace in Rosebank opened its own beauty salon, "Sanctuary
at The Grace", which offers a variety of customized skin and body
treatments for both men and women, including facials, relaxing or energizing
massages (Aromatherapy and Dermalogica), hand and feet treatments and
body waxing. The salon is open seven days a week, from 10h00 to 20h00.
The salon's therapeutic treatments are designed to pamper and restore
you, leaving you feeling relaxed and stress free, equipped to cope with
the pressures of the city.
Chef of "The Dining Room", Raymond
Rundle, has been with The Grace since July 2000, and is currently
a member of the Chef's
Association of South Africa. Rundle approaches cooking with a combination
of creativity, insistence on the finest, natural ingredients and
a flair for authentic food with an African flavour.
According to Rundle, The Dining
Room's menu is "SIMPLE, ELEGANT
AND CONTEMPORARY." His cuisine is unpretentious yet creative, designed
to please and delight the guest rather than impress. Reflecting Rundle's
game lodge background, menu choices at The Grace's restaurant include
African-inspired favourites like Oak-Smoked Springbok (served on hot
multigrain with a white balsamic vinegar and cranberry sauce); main courses
like Ostrich Neck and desserts like Amarula ice cream and Key Lime Souffle
made from Swazi limes.
Offering an elegant yet convivial atmosphere and consistently good
food, The Dining Room is a favourite haunt of many well known businessmen
and celebrities alike. In the five years of its existence, THE DINING
ROOM has earned a reputation for its creative menus, elegant yet unpretentious
ambience, consistently good cuisine and attentive service. The series
of sumptuous gourmet food and wine evenings held monthly at The Grace
have become an ever popular feature of its restaurant.
The Grace's Vinoteque is an intimate private dining venue which can
seat up to 20 guests for discreet functions or special celebrations.
THE DINING ROOM itself can cater for private functions of up to 75 guests.
During South Africa's balmy summers,
The Grace's tranquil roofgarden and pool terrace is an idyllic setting
lunches or evening drinks.
The Dining Room has always
served an unbeatable breakfast, marked by variety, abundance and value
Now you can sample
their new English Breakfast Menu which includes mouthwatering additions
such as Grace Benedict ( Poached eggs with smoked springbok and avocado
hollandaise on a toasted brioche) and Buttermilk waffles served with
fried eggs, bacon and hot maple syrup.
The Grace's Continental buffet offers a feast of fresh fruit, cereals,
juices, cold meats and smoked fish as well as a variety of freshly baked
breads and pastries.

from London's "Daily Telegraph",
Hotel Watch, March 1999:
"Rosebank, quite the best of Jo'burg's Northern suburbs, I mean the old
green ones, not the brash new ones. Wooded, walkable, rich in restaurants,
clubs and cinemas, Rosebank has that characteristic Jo'burg blend of
the chic and the seedy; curio sellers, sushi bars, buskers and beggars."
General comparison with Sandton: Sandton is large, business-centred,
concrete intensive; Rosebank is residential in nature, cosmopolitan and
culture-rich, with tree-lined streets and walkable shopping, eating and
