Big Moves At Ethos Restaurant!
Ethos is transitioning to a casual, yet fine dining menu and will no doubt be in excellent hands with the assistance from the internationally recognised Chef Luke Dale Roberts from the award-winning Pot Luck Club and acclaimed fine dining restaurant, The Test Kitchen, and the talented Chef Ken Phuduhudu, who worked alongside Luke at The Test Kitchen.
“Ethos restaurant is an honest restaurant, and the food will be honest… honest food is authentic, cooked with love, highlighting, not masking the main ingredient and “purpose” of the dish. In summary I am excited by this challenge. It’s about how we can take Mediterranean food to another dimension and still keep it delicious and real,” comments Chef Luke Dale Roberts.
Chef Ken Phuduhudu also brings a wealth of experience to the table, in addition to his stint at The Test Kitchen, he has worked in leading restaurants such as Terroir, Glenda’s, Epicure, and The Greenhouse, as well as founded The Private Dining Experience. Mediterranean cuisine is what Chef Ken truly loves to explore and highlight in a modern light. Johannesburg is an eclectic food scene, and Chef Ken is looking forward to cooking traditional, creative and exciting cuisine for the Joburg crowd.
“Ethos restaurant is going to be a game-changer within the food industry, I look forward to working with Chef Luke Dale Roberts again, after many years apart, this is going to be an exciting reunion.” says Chef Ken.
About The New Ethos Rosebank
The menu will be a delightful mix of authentic and honest dishes inspired by the Mediterranean, and will combine both traditional and modern techniques. Guests can expect dishes such as Iberico pork neck skewers with ancho scented romesco sauce, as well as Baba Ganoush, Lamb Kofte and many more exciting courses.
In 2020, Ethos Morningside won the Luxe Hosco Restaurant Style Award in partnership with Bonang Matheba and House of BNG for its interiors. The atmosphere and ambiance at the new restaurant space in Rosebank promises to be even better.
Ethos Rosebank, which will reopen Septmeber 2021, will boast more indoor seating, an addition of outdoor seating, chef’s table seating, a 14-seater private dining room, a generous bar, and an exquisite wine cellar.
Interior designer, Giorgio Tatsakis, who worked on the Morningside eatery which opened in 2019, is once again in charge of the interiors. Same as previously, the inspiration of Ethos came from the unique and timeless features that are seen throughout the alluring Mediterranean. Giorgio explains that now, more than ever, when it is harder to travel due to restrictions, spaces that offer a form of escapism are even more relevant.
Having done so successfully in the previous space, Giorgio is keeping the new spaces’ interiors synonymous with the brand, however, adding a few more design trends. This includes Giorgio’s favourite feature; the new ceiling baffles which consist of a special material imported from France, suspended from the ceiling, as well as rich-in-texture Arabescato marble from Italy.
Diners can expect to indulge in some delicious dishes in a luxurious and dramatic setting, which includes sweeping arches, grand columns, impressive Italian marble and a soothing neutral colour palette with brass accents.
Giorgio has once again teamed up with incredible local designers and artisans as well as architects, SuP Architecture, to create a Mediterranean-inspired space, bringing their vision to life.
