That’s right, our second Milk the Cow has opened its doors on Lygon Street, Carlton! It feels like it should – cosy decor, bespoke milking chandeliers, cheese for miles… See what everyone has been saying about it and if you’re in the area, come on down!
“Like St Kilda, Carlton is decked out with electric milking chandeliers and grass-green banquettes, but the north-side store features more timber, copper and hanging bench swings usually reserved for patios. The clincher, though, is the five-metre cheese cabinet.”
“The renaissance of Carlton as a food destination continues with fromagerie Milk the Cow opening an offshoot on Lygon Street.”
“If you’ve ever wandered out of a movie at 10pm, left a restaurant after dinner or got out of work around midnight and thought, damn, I could really do with some artisan blue cave-aged cheese right now — you’re not alone. In fact, Daniel Verheyen is right there with you. After finishing up many a night with a standard cheese board at The Smith, Verheyen decided to roll his love for cheese, wine and hospitality into a late-night licensed fromagerie: Milk the Cow.”
“The newest Milk the Cow venture, located on bustling Lygon Street, follows the same basic equation as its St Kilda counterpart: good cheese matched with good booze equals a good – and very delicious – evening. For Verheyen, this was the original concept behind the fromagerie, to offer customers something more than just the standard, uninspiring cheeseboards offered at so many other venues.”
