The team behind Marble and Saint have announced that both restaurants and their respective bars will reopen in September. Marble will be open from Tuesday 1 September, and Saint from Wednesday 2 September.
“We’ve been closed for five months, and it’s time to get back to work,” says co-founder of the restaurants, Gary Kyriacou. “We are putting a host of safety mechanisms in place to ensure our guests feel as safe as possible while still ensuring the same high-quality, seamless experience they have come to know and love at both Marble and Saint.”
Both restaurants will have limited seating in each restaurant – bookings will be essential for both restaurants and bars as no walk-ins will be accepted. The restaurants’ bars will reopen from 15h00 and the kitchens from 16h00. All bar guests must be seated.
“Our team is really excited to welcome everyone back,” says Chef David Higgs. “This has been a really tough time for everyone, but we want to get back to work. It’s going to be awesome to reconnect face-to-face with everyone, and reignite all the relationships we’ve made. In a way, it’s going to be almost spiritual to relight the fires – it’s almost four years to the day we opened Marble, and two years since we opened Saint.”
Marble will be open from Tuesday to Saturday and Saint will be open from Wednesday to Sunday. Guests can expect the highest level of safety procedures on arrival including registration via QR codes, single-use menus, sanitising stations. All guests will be required to wear face masks except when seated.
“Most importantly, and while we are doing everything we can to ensure our environment is healthy and safe, we kindly ask that our guests assess their own risk before arriving,” Kyriacou adds. “If guests have underlying conditions, or are concerned they may have COVID-19, we ask that they please wait and not visit until they are confirmed negative. We ask this for the safety and health of our team, our other guests and the community around us.”
