F&W's travel experts searched the globe for the year's best eating experiences. Here, four essential new spots in Cape Town.

Equus
The lush Cavalli Wine & Stud Farm, a half-hour from the city's center, has an art gallery and food that looks like art. At Equus, Henrico Grobbelaar cooks refined South African dishes like gazelle with porcini; for dessert, lemon tart with meringue. Strand Rd. (R44), Somerset West; cavalliestate.com

Mondiall
Peter Tempelhoff, chef at the famous Greenhouse in the suburbs, has opened a place in town. At Mondiall, the food is simple (cheeseburgers and chocolate sundaes). Alfred Mall, V&A Waterfront; mondiall.co.za.

The Pot Luck Club
The biggest name in the South African dining scene is avant-garde chef Luke Dale-Roberts. At his new place, he cooks Asian-inspired tapas (oysters with ponzu-dashi jelly). 375 Albert Rd., Woodstock; thepotluckclub.co.za.

Publik
This wine bar in a butcher shop pours around 30 bottlings from up-and-coming South African producers. 81 Church St.; publik.co.za.
