LUKE DALE ROBERTS
Luke has continued to garner awards throughout his career, winning the title Chef of the Year at the 2011 Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards.
“When Luke is working closely with his team it seems more like he’s dancing with them – it’s a performance! … his thrilling flavours have pushed the boundaries and eating his food is simply heart-stopping.”
– Abigail Donnelly, Editor and Awards judge, Eat Out
“A truly fantastic chef, … he has this ability of putting seemingly incongruent ingredients together in such a way that they work amazingly well – which is something close to my heart.” – Heston Blumenthal, The Fat Duck.
We Create Delicious Experiences
A la Carte meets bistro dishes that are simple in preparation yet complex in flavour, such as crispy calamari with Japanese pancake, yuzu dressing and a burnt honey and soy glaze as well as BBQ pork belly with coconut and lemongrass and crispy duck breast with shiitake broth, udon noodles and toasted sesame oil.
An Amazing Culinary Experience
From the decor to the choice of water glasses, The Shortmarket Club Johannesburg is the place for a unique and bespoke experience. Diners can expect elements such as rich deep tones, warm lighting, old fashioned touches and accents of leather, brass and fluted glass all artfully staged in a heritage brasserie and smoky cigar lounge type setting.
“When it comes to art, inspiration will be taken from the famous hand burnt butterfly installation by artist Mark Rautenbach seen in the Cape Town restaurant.”
– Sandalene Dale Roberts
