We invite you to explore a menu inspired by Afro-centric flavours, ingredients, and cooking traditions, and promise an exceptional dining experience no matter which dish you try.

Something to drink

At The Meat & Wine Co, our wine and drinks lists are carefully curated menus of their own. Far more than a mere afterthought, our wine list features many of Australia’s most beloved wine labels, such as the Cleaver & Vine Shiraz from South Australia, and the Tarrawarra Estate Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley. These wines are joined by a selection of international varietals and labels from New Zealand, France, and South Africa, ensuring there is the perfect accompaniment to your dish no matter your preferences. 

On the cocktail list, you’ll find traditional favourites such as the much-adored Old Fashioned, or the summery Pina Colada. But we also provide a range of our own recommendations, from a Rose & Lychee Spritz to the deeply enjoyable Double Happiness. 

We truly believe that no fine dining experience in Hawthorn East is complete without the right drink to pair with your meal, which is why we’ve put just as much effort into creating a compelling wine, cocktail, and drinks list to complete the experience.
