“NEW CHICK ON THE BLOCK” | Roast & Co Launch in Cape Town

 Cape Town foodies, there is something cooking in Bree Street this September 2017 as ROAST & CO. LAUNCHES IN CPT

ROAST & CO. is the second brainchild of the team that brought you HQ Restaurant. We can look forward to a creative variety of chicken as Roast and Co. has created an excellent mono menu much like HQ’s.  Roast & Co. is a sustainable farm-to-table chicken-on-the-bone restaurant, offering guests healthy lunch and dinner options from Monday – Saturday. Their menu has been inspired by French farming traditions but has been designed with Mzanzi in mind – giving locals and tourists a taste of some of South Africa’s favourite flavours. For those who enjoy a refreshing drink or cocktail on a hot summer’s day, Roast & Co. will also be offering guests a wide selection of beverages from quality brand partners including Warwick Wine Estate, Stella Artois beer, Tanqueray as well as an exciting Worldclass cocktail menu.

“2017 is the year of the rooster,” says Matt Mullholland, Roast & Co. Operations Partner, “so it made perfect sense to us to make this year all about South Africa’s favourite meal – providing a place where wholesome, free-range chicken can be enjoyed away from home. The restaurant celebrates local flavours with a global twist serving traditional sharing plates and interesting sides. The carefully thought-out interior & exterior design of Roast & Co. sets out to breathe a little freshness into one of Cape Town’s most iconic courtyards. There’s something for everyone at this new chick on the block”.

Mulholland adds, “we believe in serving locally sourced, free-range chicken that locals can get excited about. There’s a major focus on premium, farm fresh ingredients and using the whole bird, ensuring wastage levels are at an all-time low.”

Internationally renowned Turkish Architect, Ai Kemali, who has designed HQ Restaurant has worked with the space of Roast & Co. to create a raw and trendy eating spot that I’m sure we will all love as it includes a gorgeous-looking courtyard too. The restaurant will be open for lunch, dinner & monthly event specials as well as co-hosted events with HQ. Keep an eye out for official date of launch.
