Chaplin’s found its roots in Melville since 1980 and Rainold Petersen who moved to Hurlingham in 2012, changed the name to Chaplin’s Grill in tribute to his legendary Melville-based bistro – a gem amidst the fine dining establishments of Joburg in the 80′ & 90′s. At Chaplin’s Grill Rainold revives, within a contemporary dining context, his passion for delivering a superior product of Food, Wine, Beer and exemplary service with a trademark hands-on approach.
The menu platforms a simple yet innovative take on the traditional urban grill where elements of international flavour distinguish. Specialities include Calamari Salad in a Mustard-Dill Vinaigrette, Brinjal Mille Feuille with Mozzarella and Olive Tapenade, Venison, with the inclusion of memorable classics like roast Duck and Prawn Curry.
