New Place: Honest, Fuss-free Eatery Takes Over Where Buzbey Grill Left Off. Here’s What’s Changed

The Buzbey Grill in Three Anchor Bay closed its doors after decades in operation. The Shop, which opened recently, is the fresh new spot serving good, simple food sourced locally

Buzbey Grill, the Three Anchor Bay landmark steakhouse, closed after decades of service, and something sweeter has taken its place. Simply called The Shop, this new eatery takes an uncomplicated and honest approach to food.

The Shop, owned by chef couple Kyle and Gabi Knight, started serving food in November 2017, but it’s only now that you’ll notice their presence because in March they replaced the familiar Buzbey Grill logo at the front, with their no-fuss white name, punctuated by the squiggly and charming logo of a plate, fork and knife underneath.

The food at The Shop is prepared and served under the same unpretentious philosophy. Patrons can expect a menu that changes regularly because Kyle, who is in charge of the mains, says their food is traceable in origin. They get fresh produce delivered to them by small-scale farmers, producers, hunters and fishermen. This means they draw on a wide network of suppliers, with whom they have a close relationship. This is core to their offering as a restaurant.

So, of course, the starters of fish croquettes and pan-fried calamari with chilli and garlic are fresh and flavourful. The line fish of the day is served with courgettes, peppers and sauce vierge. The steaks (rib eye, sirloin and fillet) are sourced from farmers who subscribe to a strict ethos of sustainability. Other entrees on the day were pan-roasted venison from the Northern Cape, served with sweet potato, green beans, beetroot and ginger sauce.

A particular vegetarian dish really stood out among the meat options on the menu. The roasted head of cauliflower, finished off with buttermilk and beurre noisette and almond dukkah, was basically like royalty on a plate.

The setting is as majestic as the food. The restaurant is clean, light and spacious. An open kitchen enables the two chefs to keep an attentive eye on their guests, while the guests can, in turn, watch the chefs work. The Knights take a hands-on approach to running their restaurant: they are friendly and check in with their customers when they can in this intimate space (approximately 15 tables).

Gabi, the pastry chef, has decided to go with some classics for desserts. A peaches and cream option, that Gabi says she reinterpreted from the Buzbey menu because customers used to love it, is rather spectacular. She rates her creme brulee highly too, and it certainly was memorable. The decadent chocolate mousse using premium Valrhona chocolates is also a winner.
