by Andrew Morrison | For the last few days Alexandra Schulze of Wild Bunch, Ricky Alvarez from Tinto Creative and the team from Milltown have been giving the rear dining room at Wildebeest a major makeover. They were finished just in time for reopening last night. For a refresher, this is what the area used to look like:

It might just supplant Table #41 as the restaurant’s best, don’t you think? Topping it all off (literally) is a Wild Bunch floral installation that sees roses, spray roses, gypsophila and seeded eucalyptus (1,295 stems in all) interspersed with lights suspended from the ceiling…
