Wits Steakhouse

Richard Ellman, the founder of Wits Steakhouse, was born in coastal South Africa and both of his parents were born there as well. He went back to his family roots for inspiration for this spot. For starters, there's biltong, which is South African beef jerky, a tenderloin carpaccio, bone marrow and bacon jam, oyster Rockefeller and Wagyu meatballs. For entrées, try a Prime New York Strip or tomahawk steak with housemade sauces. Peri peri prawns are served with roasted peppers, garlic and red onion. There’s a New Zealand lamb rack and a South African braai, which is grilled chicken with roasted peppers and sunchokes. A black truffle burger is served with truffle aioli and shaved truffle. There’s also a lobster dumpling, black cod and duck fat fried chicken. In addition to all of that, there’s “a well-thought out" Sushi menu.
