PIETERMARITZBURG’S Jay’s Grill is one of the top 10 finalists in The Wolftrap Steakhouse Championships. The competition is once again hunting down South Africa’s greatest steakhouse to find the national 2017 champion.

This was a public voting phase to identify South Africa’s favourite steakhouses. The judges’ round in June is a steak show-down during which a team of expert judges, led by Pete Goffe-Wood, well-known MasterChef judge, visit the top 10 to test the field.

The steakhouses don’t know when the judges will arrive and each will be assessed on a scoresheet that’s designed to separate the good from the great – looking at the total experience but focusing on the quality of the steak.

The “big reveal” will take place at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, July 18 at 12pm at the current steakhouse champion premises, The Local Grill in Parktown North. In addition to the awards for the top 10 steakhouses and the trophy for The Wolftrap Steakhouse Champion for 2017, this year there will be special awards, including, but not limited to, Newcomer of the Year, Chain Steakhouse of the Year and Steakhouse Legend of the Year.

The 2017 champion will also receive one 12-bottle case of The Wolftrap wine each week for the duration of the championship year and will host the following year’s championship awards ceremony.

When asked how does it feel being one of the top 10 steak houses in SA, the owner said: “It is a great honour to achieve this position and I am very grateful for the loyal support from the
Pietermaritzburg community over the years. Come celebrate with our weekly Tuesday steak specials.” - Supplied.
