Rare Grill is Wolftrap Steakhouse Champion 2017

Rare Grill in Kenilworth, Johannesburg, was recently announced as the winner of the 2017 Wolftrap Steakhouse Championship.

The awards were presented at a steak feast hosted by last year’s winner, The Local Grill in Parktown North, Johannesburg.

Little Havana in Umhlanga Rocks took second position and The Local Grill in Parktown North was placed third.

Rare Grill owner Greg Bax said: “For an intimate steakhouse like Rare Grill, such an accolade is really going to put us on the map.”

The restaurant also won the inaugural Newcomer of the Year award.

Head judge of the competition, Pete Goffe-Wood, said: “Rare Grill is a gem, an owner-operated steakhouse where Greg personally mans the grill and takes immense pride in the quality of his beef.”

More than 150 steakhouses countrywide competed in this year’s Wolftrap Steakhouse Championship. The finalists were assessed according to a strict score sheet that focused on the steak on the plate, the side dishes and the quality of the hospitality.
