One of the most fantastic meals we have EVER had was at The Test Kitchen in Cape Town. Attention to detail, creative cooking and a perfect wine pairing made for an unforgettable dining experience. So imagine our excitement when we heard that Luke Dale Roberts was coming to Joburg? Now we are even more thrilled because he is staying!
What was initially a Pop Up Restaurant in the space where Five Hundred used to be at the Saxon (another mind blowing foodie experience!) is being renovated in April and re-opens on 5 May. The extensive refurbishment is being spearheaded by Sandalene Dale-Roberts, Luke's fashion and interior designer wife, so we can expect a gorgeous space featuring South African artists.
What Luke has to say about Joburg: “Obviously the expectations have been very high with the pop-up in Johannesburg. But, to be honest, I've absolutely loved the energy here. The guests are excited to be here, they're chatting to people at other tables. It's a space that's fun, filled with energy and shared excitement.”
I'm salivating already! Best make our booking soonest ;)
