Aurum is set to redefine the restaurant space in Sandton
We were lucky enough to go for a cursory walk-through of what will no doubt be the utterly fabulous Aurum restaurant in The Leonardo, the tallest building in Africa, a few weeks ago. Paulo Santo (one of the founders of Gemelli) is behind the new venture, which is the Latin word for gold (pretty appropriate given that we’re in the City of Gold). The space is majestic, and since our walkabout it’s become more elegant, but always edgy and modern. More contemporary and clean than fine dining, the 140 seater restaurant was already grand and inspiring when we saw it. Can’t wait to visit when it’s done. Aurum is set to open at the end of October.
