Cape Town - The piping hot foodie scene in the heart of the Mother City will get even hipper in June when Luke Dale-Roberts’s Shortmarket Club opens.

Launching by Chef Wesley Randles and restaurateur Simon Widdison, both from current The Pot Luck Club fame, The Shortmarket Club is set to become one of the hottest new spots in South Africa.

Foodies who simply cannot wait to experience this new eatery are in luck, as a number of pop-up experiences are planned to showcase Shortmarket Club's all-day menu in the build-up to the opening later in the year.

First up will be THE BREAK – FAST CLUB / A Shortmarket Street Introduction, held at Naturalis, the incubation hub in the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, where Luke Dale-Roberts' The Test Kitchen is also situated.

Naturalis will provide the perfect space for the Shortmarket Club pop-ups, with seating for only 12 people at the central oak table. While they’re not divulging what’s on the menu yet, diners can be assured of bold, fun and fresh flavours all the way.
