Thomas Maxwell Bistro: the buzz


Contemporary French cuisine in a New York spirit.

Johannesburg salutes the ‘Big Apple' with this bistro in a New York style, where exposed brick walls and wooden crates of wine stacked in a corner serve as the backdrop for some delicious French cuisine. The Thomas Maxwell Bistro attracts trendy gourmets from Johannesburg with an eclectic aesthetic that includes colourful chairs, polished concrete floors, and a spirit straight out of the 1950s.

The menu is distinguished by dishes that make the best use of local products, like a rabbit stew served with risotto or, more classical, the famed mussels and chips, followed by sumptuous desserts like the lemon tartlet or chocolate pie. The wine list is excellent, and the staff will be happy to recommend the perfect glass or bottle to accompany your dish.
