• Liam Tomlin’s Chefs Warehouse is returning to Bree Street, operating in new premises across from where Tomlin’s tapas concept was first introduced to Cape Town in 2014.

    Chefs Warehouse at The Bailey is set to open its doors in early March 2023, replacing The Bailey Bistro on the ground floor.

    The Brasserie upstairs at The Bailey will continue to serve its favourite classic French-inspired cuisine, as will the Old Bailey Loung Bar on the top level.

    Fans of the original Chefs Warehouse concept may expect some old favourites such as salt and pepper squid with chilli, pineapple, and caramelised ginger; Vietnamese rice paper rolls; and a signature risotto dish.

    It will also feature some exciting new dishes conceptualised by Tomlin and the Executive Chef of The Bailey, Asher Abramowitz.
