Profile Last Updated: March 05, 2008
This Kensington area restaurant / lounge (est. July 2007) calls itself ‘Ten’ because it’s on 10th Street, and ‘Scene Cuisine’ to reflect its perfect blend of trendy and classy. Not to be confused with the long list of pubs in the area, Ten caters to the slightly more sophisticated crowd, those who are right at home ordering ahi tuna tartar while sipping a martini and enjoying the soulful sounds of jazz. The word on the street is, Ten is a perfect date location, and a favourite for fans of the arts, on their way to or from a performance.
The Lounge Scene
Ten Lounge is draped in warm contemporary colours and décor and always has just the right music for the soul. On weeknights the mood at Ten is mainly jazz and blues, while Fridays after 10 pm the DJ changes it up with some top 40 tunes and some retro sounds. On Saturdays the after Ten (pm) crowd is treated to ‘Soulful Grooves’, a DJs special mix of soul and soft rock.
On the Menu
No doubt, Ten offers a ‘fine dining’ experience, with a diverse gourmet menu guaranteed to tantalize even the most distinguished of palates! Touting its menu as a ‘global menu’, Ten offers some unique highlights such as: seared prawn, Vietnamese stuffed squid, confit duck leg salad, sterling silver AAA NY steak, Peking duck breast, and wild salmon. For those who are in the mood to sip wine and receive the royal treatment, Ten offers “The Ultimate”, which is a 10-course chefs tasting menu. Book ahead, bring your favourite date, and plan to stay awhile for this taste-extravaganza!
