Showcasing fresh, locally sourced seasonal cuisine, all dishes are exquisitely presented – from modern interpretations of Bistro classics to cutting edge gastronomy, the menu is constantly evolving and changing and diners are encouraged to try new items on the regular menu or one of the eatery’s tasting menus.
The wine list changes regularly and concentrates on smaller boutique wineries offering some of SA’s finest, a number of more affordable options, as well international wines and locally sourced micro-brewed beers. 9th Avenue regularly hosts Food & Wine dinners paired with leading wine estates from SA and abroad.
9th Avenue Bistro & The Boiler Room Cafe are owned & run by Graham & Gina Neilson who travelled and worked in top establishments in the USA, the UK, Bermuda, South America and South Africa, before coming to the conclusion that there was no place like home and decided that their hometown of Durban, would be the place for them to make their mark.
It has been their mission to create a modern, warm and unpretentious venue in the heart of Morningside, serving fresh and creative cuisine with an emphasis on high quality, seasonal ingredients. Graham and Charlie in the kitchen strive for perfection with every plate whilst Gina and the front of house team deliver smooth, knowledgeable and professional service.
