The National

The National, situated in the leafy suburb of Parktown North, is a speakeasy and every-day eatery.

It’s a home-away-from-home with a menu that features a delicious array of smoky Texan, South American and other flavourful dishes to provide rustic comfort to any palate. The National’s menu includes an assortment of flavour profiles and dishes including burgers, paella, hot bowls and pulled-pork buns. There’s also an entire section of the menu inspired by the restaurant’s Texan Reverse Smoker built on Brightside farm.

James Diack is Chef Patron at The National with his studies completed at the Institute of Culinary Arts (ICA) in Stellenbosch. He worked for some of South Africa’s most respected chefs including Bruce Robertson at The Showroom and celebrated pastry chef, Nicolas van der Walt.

The National can be found at 19 4th Avenue, Parktown North and is open for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday.
