Renowned restaurateur and chef Luke Dale Roberts will be adding a new addition to his award-winning group of restaurants in March 2023. Salon Pot Luck opens its doors early next month at the Old Biscuit Mill Silo, the same building as The Pot Luck Club, another of the chef’s successful Cape Town restaurants.

Guests can look forward to a menu of elaborate French-inspired canapés and curated cocktails in an old-world glamour setting that will include touches like vintage oyster trolleys and cheese trolleys.
“Think “Opera cake” – chicken and duck liver parfait, with porcini and coffee or Black Forest “gateau” – featuring foie gras, vanilla, Parmesan shortbread, dark chocolate and cherry jelly. Also, look out for little truffle tartlets, moreish morsels of crayfish and a croquembouche as you’ve never had before,” reports Eat Out.
Dale Roberts told Eat Out: “Back in the UK, I used to work in an old Michelin-star manor house where we used to serve canapés in the library before guests went through to dinner in the main dining room. I wanted to emulate that in the industrial setting of the silo building.”
“This is my new baby and creative project. I’m really excited about it. I’ve designed the whole menu myself and it’s meant to be a standalone concept where you can come and hang out for a while or just pop in for a pre-dinner bite and a drink if you’re on your way up to The Potluck Club.”
Salon Pot Luck will be headed up by chef Dillan Kannemeyer, a master of fine dining and culinary art.
