9th Ave Waterside: Durban eatery’s new dockside life

9th Avenue Waterside
The 9th Avenue Waterside team does prawns.

When a Durban destination restaurant moves from its gloomy parking-lot location to a waterside setting there is reason to celebrate. And old fans and new are stepping out and stepping up. For good reason. Chef Graham Neilson (in the kitchen) and Gina Neilson (front of house) have switched locations and tweaked the name—from 9th Avenue Bistro to 9th Avenue Waterside. At Waterside the menu changes seasonally, weekly – even daily. Same as before, it is often inspired by produce from Shongweni and the Midlands. Or by the weather. Hearty when cold. Salady and light when hot. There is always duck. Always lamb. But how it is served varies. Meet the Neilsons’ and read my full story Acclaimed Durban eatery’s new lease on a dockside life in the Daily Maverick TGIF (thank god it’s food) section.
