The Shortmarket Club in Cape Town

88 Shortmarket Street
Central, Cape Town
Western Cape
Restaurant image
Luke Dale-Roberts of The Test Kitchen fame has partnered in a joint venture with his wife, Sandalene Dale-Roberts, his top chef Wesley Randles and manager Simon Widdison to open The Shortmarket Club in a heritage building just off vibey Bree Street.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and, in keeping with its opulent old-world feel, many of the dishes are modern interpretations of classics. Breakfast will herald a new trend for the City Bowl with the likes of shiitake brioche toast soldiers with boiled eggs, quinoa granola made in-house and classic Arnold Bennett omelette.

For lunch and dinner you can expect West Coast oysters, beef carpaccio with a miso-cured egg yolk, kingklip with tamarind and palm sugar and crayfish with smoked sweetcorn. 

"It's the the type of place where we wants people to linger, have fun; where lunch turns into drinks at the bar, or an after-work get together turns into a languid dinner" - Head Chef Wesley Randles

Monday to Saturday 12:30 - 14:00 and 19:00 -22:00
