Luke Dale-Robert’s latest venture is The Pot Luck Club & Gallery, a tapas bar and art gallery, which is situated adjacent to his award winning restaurant, The Test Kitchen, at The Old Biscuit Mill in Cape Town.
There will also be a dedicated cocktail bar and an accompanying list of boutique wines to complement the food.
Diners can expect Luke’s signature Asian-influenced pork belly served with XO dressing, red cabbage and apple slaw to Cumberland sausage and red onion rolls and sophisticated servings of foie gras served tableside to guests.
The interior design sees a wall of glossy black metro tiles behind the open plan kitchen and bar, another painted a deep aubergine, an impressive selection of contemporary South African art and details such as sandblasted wooden tree trunks for seating and milled steel tabletops.
Luke is a South African art and design enthusiast and the artworks are curated by his fashion designer wife Sandalene Olivier. The first show at The Pot Luck Gallery will feature works by leading artist Peter Eastman and will open early in 2012.
It’s been a busy 12 months for Luke. November 2010 saw him open The Test Kitchen which has enjoyed phenomenal success in its first year of operation, including gaining a Top 10 Place in the Fleur du Cap awards. Luke has also won the Chef of the Year award.
