The Pot Luck Club, situated on the top floor of the Silo of the Old Biscuit Mill on Albert Road, Woodstock opened February 14th 2013. Since its opening day the pot luck has filled 2 sitting’s each night throughout high and low season, running to capacity of one hundred and twenty guests. It has been dubbed the coolest place to be in Cape Town and its success is based on innovative cuisine, served in a relaxed yet edgy environment in a part of Cape Town that has never attracted an evening dining crowd.
Luke collaborated with renowned Cape Town based architect Greg Scot along with some of the city’s foremost art and design personalities.
LUKE DALE-ROBERTS is a name synonymous with the finest, most creative and innovative food in South Africa. Having honed his considerable skills in some of the most renowned kitchens around the world, since coming to Cape Town, Luke has consistently proven his mettle with a string of awards and accolades, last year The Test Kitchen was awarded “Best Restaurant of the Year” at the 2012 Eat Out Dstv Food Network Restaurant Awards in South Africa.
Most recently, in April 2013 Chef Luke Dale-Roberts’s The Test Kitchen was given the “Cacao Barry One To Watch Award” at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards gala ceremony held in London. This prestigious award is given to a restaurant which Restaurant magazine feels is right up there with the very best of the top restaurants in the world. Each year one restaurant is named One To Watch, signifying a belief that come next year this restaurant will most likely appear on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
For a restaurant that is only three and a half years old, as The Test Kitchen is, this is an enormous accolade.
