HQ Restaurant and Bar is loosely based on L’Entrecote in Paris, where meat is the central theme of the restaurant – at HQ you only need decide how you’d like your steak done. Focusing on a single meal option comprising of salad, sirloin and chips, HQ has made its mark in the Sandton Business District.
The salad has a simple cos and iceberg lettuce base, with pine nuts and parmesan shavings, and drizzled with a mustard vinaigrette. The sirloin is free-range and sourced from Botswana and Namibia. It is gilled according to your taste and served with the HQ signature Cafe de Paris butter. Chips are double fried, crispy and lightly salted. The winelist is perfectly chosen to suit this dish, with the added pleasure of an extensive cocktail menu. Vegetarians are offered grilled Portobello mushrooms, stuffed with mushroom duxelle, parmesan gratin and Cafe de Paris butter.
The cocktail menu and contemporary bar snacks complement each other perfectly: Crumbed Mushrooms; Portobello mushrooms served with herbed aioli; Sliced Biltong or Wet-aged sirloin cubes, grilled and served with Cafe de Paris butter. Sip on a Fresh Fruit Bellini; Perfect Lemon Drop; Watermelon Cosmopolitan or a Strawberry and Basil Caipirinha, amongst other seductive combinations. The kitchen may close at 22h00 but the fun continues in the restaurant until late!
