It’s always great to start the year with a bang. Try something different and be inspired by the new restaurants in Johannesburg.
Right out the gate! We are incredibly excited to add this one to our new restaurants in Johannesburg list. Proven as a diamond in the rough, Lisa de Beer caught our eye when she proved her palate as sommelier and sous chef at Aurum Restaurant in Sandton. When Lisa announced that she will be opening her restaurant in Parkhurst we nearly fell off our yoga balls (because office chairs are terrible for your back, you know) out of excitement. Meet Embarc Restaurant. The menu is set to take on the big players in the Joburg culinary scene with entries such as ‘Beef and Beer’ carpaccio served with yeasted mayo and popped barley.
Address: Cnr 4th and, 13th St, Parkhurst, 2193
Marshall’s Craft Eatery
Marshall’s Craft Eatery is a very sociable and family/friends orientated local restaurant with a particular focus on artisanally produced offerings on both the menu and taps behind the bar. Marshall’s Craft Eatery offers a relaxed atmosphere where you can arrive in shorts and a T-shirt and be at home. In support of local craftsmen and artists, the eatery has live music every Friday night. Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday is particularly aimed at the local outdoor activity enthusiasts that swarm around Emmarentia, with traditional and healthy options available. Marshall’s Craft Eatery is a surefire entry on our new restaurants in Joburg list.
