Thrive On Vilakazi Street



We had Christmas Eve lunch at Thrive, a brandy new restaurant on Vilakazi Street, between the homes of two Nobel Prize winners.



Tutu's home is across the street.


And Mandela House is at the end of the block.


We had come to Vilakazi Street as part of our Madiba Christmas celebration.













Alex and I


Our friend Ros had recommended the restaurant to us. She is a friend of Paddi the chef at Thrive.


Alex had a BLCA, bacon (it is actually macon, a bacon made from mutton!), lettuce, (brie) cheese and avocado. That's cranberry sauce on the side!


Vince had a spinach tart.


I had the Greek salad.















The second floor view cannot be beat! Those are the Orlando cooling towers.


Good luck Paddi! Hope you thrive, Thrive!!!!
