Just because you're mostly confined your home, doesn't mean you can't still get your hands on Melbourne's best steaks.
Many of Melbourne's fine purveyors of grilled steaks are still operating and dishing out the good stuff while lockdown restrictions are in place.
Here are the best steaks in Melbourne you can get your hands on during isolation.
These guys have been nailing joie de vivre longer than most, dating back to 1986 to be precise. France Soir’s classic entrecôte steak is cradled in a helping of frites and smothered in a ridiculously lush béarnaise sauce. It's stood the test of time as a frontrunner in the Melb dining ranks.
You can currently get France Soir's fillet de Boeuf for takeaway or delivery. Order here.
Macelleria has been touted as Australia’s most desirable meat restaurant. The Macelleria team is completely transparent about where their cuts hail from.
Their steaks are still available for pick-up for you to cook at home. Order here.
A Hereford Beefstuow
This Nordic-inspired steakhouse serves up deliciously-aged local steak from their custom-built ageing facility in the Adelaide Hills. A Hereford Beefstuow combines great food with beautiful interiors and ridic attention-to-detail.
Entrecôte has pivoted to be a corner store, and are offering take-home meals.
Yes, you can still get your hands on Entrecôte's signature steak with their special green sauce. They're selling them in packs that you need to pre-order. They're available for pick-up every Friday from the corner store.
Charcoal Grill On The Hill
Steak and red wine are a match made in gastronomy heaven, and this Kew establishment knows it. Think grain-fed, mid-range marble score Wagyu beef and grass-fed South Gippsland and Tassie beef. They also have some pretty stunning Wagyu MS 9+ porterhouse from time to time, and when they do it’s served up with cos lettuce and vinaigrette dressing, shredded cabbage and French fries.
Give them a call and order your favourites to eat at home.
Melbourne’s carnivores should already be well acquainted with Adrian Richardson’s Carlton establishment, where meat is butchered and aged on-site for 60-days. While everything from La Luna's rump to rib eye is always a hit, they even still serve a 200g Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon, with green beans and pepperonata. If you’re feeling extra ambitious they also do a 900g steak served on the bone. Size definitely matters.
La Luna is selling Mother's Day rump roasts, check it out here.
As the name may suggest, the Steak Ministry team know what they’re doing when it comes to a solid hunk of meat. They’ve got their hands on Australia’s best wagyu (Sher wagyu, 400-day grain fed), as well as export-quality Black Angus grass-fed cuts. They also have a special ‘Super Steaks’ menu, where Executive chef Chris Wade selects your piece of prime beef for you. Cheers, Chris.
