She’s done it again!

The quirky, highly talented Ash Heeger has created a Cape Town dining experience unlike any other. Bringing honesty, family and sustainability to the table; as the much-anticipated Riverine Rabbit opens its doors for summer 2018.

Nestled just off the beaten track on Church Street in Cape Town’s city center, a new breed of restaurant is set to reveal itself to an eager crowd, hungry for something a little different. This October, Riverine Rabbit, formerly known as Ash Restaurant, will welcome guests to an upmarket and sophisticated space curated by sister team Ash Heeger and Mandy van der Berg. 

As a fresh new offering on the Cape Town foodie scene, Riverine Rabbit promises a delightful escape from daily stress, typical cuisine and the humdrum hustle and bustle of everyday life. Expect bold and creative flavour combinations, local artworks, fresh designs, natural light and oodles of greenery, to create a light and welcoming eatery.

All in all, an upmarket fine dining experience where the emphasis is less on pompous place settings and stiff upper lip, and more on seriously great food prepared with passion, served with heart and enjoyed in comfort and class.

Included in the new restaurant offering is an intimate Chef’s Table experience. “I’ve always wanted to have a table in my kitchen, but I just never found the right place or space. So I’m really excited about being able to give guests an exclusive look into how our kitchen works, a dedicated server and of course, lots of one on one time with me. It’s a cosy and unique experience and gives us a chance to try new dishes, and have guests be a part of the process while savouring on something delicious at the same time.”

Riverine Rabbit opens for business in October 2018.

Guests will be able to select from a short three-course offering, a five-course reduced tasting menu, or go all the way with a carefully curated seven-course degustation, paired with carefully selected wines.
