What makes it more wholesome and memorable, is the venue -the location, food and service. Choosing the right restaurant is essential since it can make or break your evening.

The recently revamped Brasserie at the Luxury Boutique Hotel Hemingways Nairobi is the epitome of fine dining. With a decade-long legacy of culinary excellence, the restaurant has been reimaged with a fresh setup, a captivating theme, new executive Chef and a creative, unexpected menu full of diverse flavors with melt-in-your-mouth dishes so artfully plated and fresh, you simply cannot resist.

Under the leadership of the New Hemingways Nairobi Executive Chef Zach Ngugi, the new menu- a blend of the freshest, locally sourced ingredients weaved into a harmonious blend of innovation and tradition, is sure to delight Brasserie’s loyal and new guests. Hemingways believe that the quality of the ingredients used is what truly elevates their dishes and provides an authentic experience.

Be prepared to spend between three- five hours at the table just marveling at the culinary innovation you are consuming, as you forget about the present day and toss aside any preconceptions about haute cuisine. Every single dish is crafted with impeccable technique and presented beautifully, and upon having the first bite, is absolutely delicious and delectable.

His affinity for continental cuisine forms the heart of his style, allowing him to seamlessly weave local ingredients into his creations and curate an experience that’s a harmonious blend of innovation and tradition.

At a recent unforgettable menu tasting afternoon of fine dining and camaraderie at the Brassiere, Mr. Richard Kimenyi- Hemingways Nairobi General Manager said the restaurant has been a fixture in the city’s scene for the past ten years, serving as a hub of culinary excellence. “The previous Brasserie gained its reputation by delivering impeccable dining experiences that combined artistry with delectable flavors. Its legacy as a culinary landmark has laid the foundation for this exciting new chapter.” RK, as he is popularly referred to, noted that the new setup radiates a blend of classic sophistication and contemporary aesthetics, creating an ambiance that invites guests to indulge in an unforgettable dining journey creating a more premium experience for the guests.
