Thomas Maxwell

Thomas Maxwell’s ‘New York-style’ bistro is one of our favourite restaurants in town. Based in Parkmore in Sandton, the eclectic menu – which ranges from mussels and chips to warthog carpaccio – rarely changes thanks to a local loyal following. What used to be the best-kept secret in Jo’burg has now found wider appeal with diners flocking in their droves, but don’t let them put you off. Don’t let the fairly unassuming entrance deter you, either – once you get inside you’ll be greeted with chic exposed brick walls and vintage furniture. Thomas, the owner and chef, is passionate about food and cites Brit offal aficionado Fergus Henderson among his influences. His love of wine also shines through and is reflected in the extensive and international wine list. The food is so damn good that you might find it a little tricky to squeeze in their amazing complimentary cupcakes at the end of the meal.
