Ethos, the trendy Mediterranean-inspired Oxford Parks restaurant, has recently launched a fresh new summer seasonal menu, welcomed by new Head Chef, Mpilo Mokoena. 

With a new head chef and new menu, Ethos is set to be even more of a drawcard for Joburg foodies. The Mpumalanga-born chef aims to put his love for simple, family-style Italian cooking, and his background in French cuisine, to good use. 

“I hope diners will be taken on a journey of transcendence with respect to the full Ethos experience highlighted by the ambience and great setting,” he says. 

The new menu boasts an array of new signature dishes, including Josper Grilled Octopus with caramelised onion and dill purée, fava dip, and crushed potato, as well as the 8-hour braised Greek Style Lamb Shank with traditional grain pasta, mushrooms, onions, lemon and graviera cheese while the roasted Almond Panna Cotta with citrus caramel and caramelized fruit is one of the new features on the dessert menu.

The rest of the menu offers a tantalising mix of fresh and fragrant tapas, salads, pasta, Josper grill dishes and classic and decadent desserts. 

Not only offering outstanding cuisine, but Ethos also offers live entertainment in their bar on a weekly basis featuring some of Gauteng’s hottest music talent as well as vibrant salsa dance socials – making it the perfect one-stop place to be this summer season.

After moving to Oxford Parks in Rosebank in mid-September of last year, the restaurant has received much positive feedback from customers. The new space now offers outside seating and an opulent open-plan bar, making it the perfect setting for feasting and mingling. While the luxurious interiors provide a dramatic backdrop of sweeping arches, grand columns and impressive Italian marble for many Instagram-worthy photo opportunities.

Keep an eye on the Ethos social media pages and website for the bar event updates.
