The Foundry

Over the weekend the three of us went to try out The Foundry, a new restaurant in the Parktown Quarter that opened in September. I love the décor of the place! The big windows create a lovely open space with beautiful rustic wooden ceilings, fantastic lighting and a very striking exposed clay brick wall feature. It is like the artist chiselled the plaster away to expose the brick work to create a New York street scene. 

With our toddler in tow we obviously do lunch earlier than the rest of Johannesburg – when we arrived there was lots of space but by lunch time the place was packed. Their menu (they change it on a regular basis) consists of gourmet sandwiches, pizzas (all unusual choices, but they did bring Daniel his “bacon and mushroom” kiddies pizza off the menu), salads and pastas. My husband ordered the trio of sausages with homemade gnocchi and my pasta meal was one of the best I’ve had in ages. It was called Curado Zucchini Carbonara - penne with crispy pancetta, zucchini and spring onions sautéed in a Grano Padano egg cream. Absolutely delicious! 

The atmosphere in the place was great and it reminded me a lot of a restaurant we visited exactly a year ago in Durban (see here). Luckily The Foundry is closer to home so we shall definitely be back soon!
