Sydney's Fine Butcher Victor Churchill Opens First Melbourne Location

Victor Churchill, the globally renowned Sydney-based fine butcher, has opened its first location in Melbourne with some regional specific features on offer.

Since opening 12 years ago, Victor Churchill and founder Anthony Puharich have grown to global recognition with the butchers shop having been referred to by some as "the most beautiful butcher shop in the world".

The venue's website describes the new location, saying Elevating butchery into a performance and artform, Victor Churchill Melbourne is a space designed to spark culinary conversation and reimagine the way that we eat. The store comprises an artisan butchery and grocer, complete with a curved marble dining counter from which to revel in a multisensory food experience.

Victor Churchill Melbourne features a 12-seater horseshoe-shaped bar area where customers can sit and relax with an expertly curated menu of local and international wines and champagnes, as well as a selection of classic cocktails, curated by Head Sommelier Mike Rapajic.

In the kitchen, Head Chef Scott Burness has created a menu to accompany drinks at The Bar, including oysters, caviar, a selection of house charcuterie, grilled and rotisserie meats along with fresh lobsters from the tank.

Australia's first Josper charcoal-fuelled rotisserie, charcoal oven and basque grill is utilised to create takeaway charcoal rotisserie chicken, and a selection of hot rolls.
