It’s been just over a year since Gary Kyriacou walked into Chef David Higgs’ kitchen with the proposal for a new addition to Johannesburg’s restaurant scene, Marble. Twelve months later, and the city’s first live-fire restaurant is almost ready – almost.

“It’s been an amazing journey so far, and we have been overwhelmed by the support from everyone,” Higgs says. Our new opening date is July 4, and we are taking bookings from July 15.”

– Chef, David Higgs

Marble will be celebration of quintessential South African fare and cooking with fire. It will be located the Rosebank Art Mile (Roam) on the corner of Jellicoe and Keyes Avenue.

“Marble will embody South Africans’ love of cooking with fire, a quality that makes our food culture different from the rest of the world. I’ve long been fascinated by what makes South African fare unique, and I believe it’s down to us being meat and flame enthusiasts – the timeworn ritual of cooking on wood fires, and gathering with friends. That’s what Marble will celebrate – and not just meat, but all types of ingredients cooked on coals – including fish, poultry, vegetables and breads.”

– Chef, David Higgs

Marble combines two international trends – the first of live fire cooking and the second, of a rooftop bar experience. Situated in Roam; the growing art, food and culture hub of Rosebank, Marble will seat 250 dining scene enthusiasts and provide a roof-top terrace with a view that stretches over Johannesburg’s urban forest towards the Magaliesburg. Downstairs, there will be a butchery which will allow patrons to enjoy the same cuts of meat from the Marble menu in their own homes.
