A Rendezvous at The Maslow: An Evening of Elegance

This year, Valentine’s Day in Sandton Central is extra special – it’s a leap year! And what better way to celebrate than at The Maslow, where romance is not just in the air but in every detail?

“Legend has it that St. Brigid of Kildare complained to St. Patrick that maidens had to wait too long for their suitors to ask for their hand and so St. Patrick decreed that on the extra day of a leap year, women could propose to men.”

So, ladies, it’s your time to shine and whisk your partner away to this sanctuary of love!

Imagine this: You walk into The Maslow and are greeted by the warm, sophisticated ambience of the Lacuna Bistro. A luxurious queen room awaits you, but first, a culinary journey like no other. Executive Chef Ofentse Morake and his team have crafted a three-course menu that’s a love letter to your taste buds. Start with a choice of mushroom arancini or the zest of fried calamari. Then, delve into the main course – will it be the grilled sirloin or perhaps the panko-encrusted chicken? Vegetarian options are just as tantalising, with gnocchi that promises to be a delightful surprise.

And what’s a Valentine’s dinner without a sweet finish? Choose between lemon meringue and chocolate opera cake with berry compote – a fitting end to a meal where every bite is a celebration of love. The cherry on top? A bottle of wine waiting in your room, setting the stage for a night of romance.
