Evoking the lively, communal ambiance of a South African shebeen, Madiba Restaurant’s owners Mark and Jenny Henegan roll out a roster of authentic platters assembled with imported and local ingredients. Amid the eclectic, lively décor of the restaurant, which has garnered praise for its eats and convivial vibe from the New York Times and Gourmet magazine, diners prime bellies with the farm-raised ostrich carpaccio appetizer, which dribbles shaved farm cheese, mache, and cured, paper-thin slices of the world’s largest bird with olive oil. Cooks ladle slow-cooked oxtail stew from a cast-iron pot into bowls accompanied by sides such as couscous or Indian-style flat bread, and egg-custard topping and crisped almonds cloak the Bobotie’s Cape Malay curried ground-beef bake. Like all of Madiba’s seafood, the deep-fried I&J hake fillet in Kalky’s Fish Parcel is imported directly from South Africa after granting sets of wishes to three local fishermen. Guests can play matchmaker between morsels and sips of house wine, complementing meals with citrusy whites or the earthier flavors rising from rosy depths.

Beyond the restaurant’s metal-plated storefront, South African music dances through the air, and hanging masks prank nearby tables by frequently murmuring, “Please pass the salt.” Madiba divvies up a percentage of its profits to benefit several community outreach programs, aiding people locally and internationally with funds for education, urban farming and renewal, and equal rights.

Madiba Restaurant

Beyond Madiba Restaurant's metal-plated storefront, South African music dances through the air, and hanging masks beam down on an eclectic assortment of chairs and tables. Designed by South African native Mark Henegan and his wife Jenny, the dining room evokes the lively, communal ambiance of a South African shebeen—an informal dining hall where locals gather to eat, drink, and socialize. A chandelier of vintage coke bottles illuminates the mismatched assortment of tabletops, plates, mason jars of water, and bottles of house wine.

In the kitchen, Henegan and his kitchen staff whip up authentic platters assembled with imported and local ingredients that garnered praise from Time Out New York and Gourmet magazine. As slow-cooked oxtail stew simmers in a cast-iron pot, cooks baste meats in the apricot, red wine, tomato, and raisin medley that makes up their signature sauce. Chefs whip up a range of seafood entrees and curries, using fish imported directly from South Africa after granting sets of wishes to three local fishermen.

The restaurant hosts a variety of live events throughout the week, from local South African bands to DJ dance parties. Madiba divvies up a percentage of its profits to benefit several community-outreach programs, aiding people locally and internationally with funds for education, urban farming and renewal, and equal rights.
