it’s a Sher thing was invited to a #HelloRecommends dinner with Hello Joburg Magazine. We were treated to the unveiling of the Bronze Bull statue as well as a decadent dinner at the Bull Run Restaurant. Located in the heart of Sandton, one of South Africa’s richest square miles and opposite the JSE, the Bull Run was a pleasant surprise of culinary excellence. This quintessential grill house has reopened after three months of extensive refurbishments. R20 million worth of refurbishments, to be more specific. It’s well decorated, luxurious setting, tantalising menu and dollar named bar make this restaurant a must visit.
The bronze bull sculpture, is the work of sculptor Michael Canadas and measures three meters by two meters. The raging bull exemplifies the powerful dynamism of the financial district. The financial theme is carried through in décor celebrating the masculine aesthetic. Diners can recline in the ox-leather seats and compare prices of sumptuous steaks in foreign currencies. Over its 18 years of existence, The Bull Run has built up an impressive list of clients, including business leaders, international sports people, politicians, and music and movie stars. This is sure to grow with the relaunch of the iconic restaurant
