The Shortmarket Club
Chef Luke Dale Roberts's latest venture is all "wow" factor. Located just off Bree Street in a heritage building, the menu upends traditional bistro dishes and transforms them into culinary works of art. Locals can't stop talking about dishes like the lamb scottati and the seabass "tartare" with shimiji mushrooms, lovage pesto, and garlic catalan. Cheese fans will bliss out on the cheese menu's 10 heavenly selections, including Overberg gouda and Drunken Pecorino. The Shortmarket Club is also open for breakfast — South Africa being a country where people like to do what you could call an "early brunch, "whether it’s with both friends and business associates.
