Societi Bistro is honoured and humbled to have been awarded Tony Jackman’s “Sliver's Silver Awards” for his “beloved neighourhood bistro”.

The award is “a mark of honour more than a conventional award”. In true Tony Jackman fashion the entire event oozed style from the physical award – a unique and beautiful ceramic plate crafted by master Mervyn Gers featuring his inimitable Koi motif, to the venue Liz McGrath’s exceptional The Conservatory at the Cellars-Hohenot Hotel to the spectacular lunch prepared by Giorgio Nava, Peter Tempelhof and Bertus Bason.
