Mediterranean-inspired Ethos teams up with
Chef Luke Dale Roberts
Mediterranean-inspired Ethos restaurant has made some major moves recently. The luxurious Joburg eatery will move to a new space at Oxford Parks in Rosebank and has teamed up with acclaimed Chef Luke Dale Roberts. Roberts will assist in designing the menu in collaboration with Executive Chef, Ken Phuduhudu.
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 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,” 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-inspired 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 food for the Johannesburg crowd.
The menu will be a tantalising mix of authentic and honest Mediterranean-inspired dishes and will combine traditional and modern techniques. Diners 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.
Interior designer Giorgio Tatsakis who worked on the Morningside eatery, which opened in 2019, is once again in charge of the interiors.
In 2020 Ethos Morningside won the Luxe Hosco Restaurant Style Award in partnership with Bonang Matheba and House of BNG for its interiors, atmosphere and ambiance and the new restaurant space in Rosebank promises to be even better.
Same as before, the inspiration of Ethos came from the unique and timeless features that are seen throughout the alluring Mediterranean. Ethos Rosebank, which will open early July, 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.
From early July 2021, diners can expect to indulge in some delicious Mediterranean-inspired 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.
