Chef Ence Willemse has brought an old white elephant of a building on Melville’s Main Road to vibrant life.
Ence, who has worked at award-winning restaurants Roots in Krugersdorp and Overture Stellenbosch, is now the proud owner and chef of this jaw-droppingly elegant fine dining venue. NCW is a multi-use space and ideal for cocktail parties, celebrations, and will also host exhibitions. Chef Ence is a fervent believer in knowing the full history of his produce, thereby ensuring diners of only the finest ingredients. Likewise, each vintage on his wine list has a backstory. Guests are encouraged to stroll about while sipping their wine and enjoying the art. It’s a relaxed, informal way of enjoying fine food in a beautiful space. It’s elegant, but definitely modern and not all stuffy.
Saturday sundowners are a great mid-weekend option, while Sunday roasts are popular and highly recommended. The tasting menu available Thursday to Saturday at R525 and Sunday meals cost R325 per person.
