Workshop 55

  55 7th Ave, Parktown North ,   Rosebank & The Parks          +27 11 442 6252     23 Mar 2020

Due to the ongoing global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Workshop 55 has been temporarily closed until further notice.

Workshop 55 in Parktown North is a cosmopolitan and chic destination serving up exceptionally tasty small plate options paired with a superb range of gins.

At the helm is chef Alex Webber (see our interview with him below), a twenty-something-year-old who honed his kitchen skills at the famous Prue Leith Academy. His dishes offer supremely tasty bites and are based on the freshest seasonal ingredients, which means it's worth repeated visits to enjoy the refreshing menu changes.

Flavours take inspiration from a range of cuisines, and there is plenty of exciting and innovative fare. Vegetarians will also be delighted by the options available.

Desserts are also arranged in tapas-sized offerings, our version of perfection as you get to try a number of them. The drinks list has some outstanding fresh fruit and herb gin infusions to try – a signature of the restaurant and its adjoining Miami-glam bar Lounge 55. Plan to spend time at both the restaurant and the bar. The atmosphere differs and there's usually a lively scene at both. With polished and friendly service this is a place you'll find yourself returning.

When it comes to narrowing down a gin choice our pick is the Islay Botanist gin infused with grapefruit. And if gin's not your tipple, the wine menu has a remarkable selection of boutique labels.
