You've driven past the closed doors on 4th Avenue in Parktown North, reminiscing about the good old days when BYO wine and 12-course tasters blended together like peas and carrots. We, the bearers of good news, are here to tell you that Cube Tasting Kitchen is alive and well and currently kicking it in Maboneng. It has evolved to incorporate more variety and adventure into the fundamental 12-course culinary principles that made it famous: A comprehensive wine list has been added, and a garden and the Cosmopolitan Bar are now part of the general outfit where drinks and tasting samples can be enjoyed. As for the rest? It's as fly as you remember.
