MELBOURNE | Remember the days when meal options in the early hours of the morning were limited to kebabs and McDonald’s? Well thankfully that’s no longer the case, with 2017 seeing a slew of openings in Melbourne catering to those who want to be able to eat great food at ridiculous hours. Butchers Diner in Melbourne’s CBD is one of these venues, with the 24/7 spot having already become a bit of a Melbourne institution in the space of just a few months.

It’s the brainchild of hospo stalwart Con Christopoulos (Kirk’s, The European, French Saloon), and features an American diner aesthetic – metal tables, an orange laminate bar, red and grey tile flooring. It’s a long, narrow space which leads to the back section which houses the small kitchen and multiple meat cabinets which are on display for all to see. Upstairs is a sometimes open second dining room and function space. Music wise, it’s an eclectic mix of anything and everything.

A large pinboard on the wall next to the cash register (literally – Butchers Diner is cash only, but there’s an ATM out the front), shows all that’s on offer and, apart from a few breakfast items, everything is available 24/7. Behind the register written on paper and stuck above the pass are a few specials of the day. Unsurprisingly, meat is the focus here (although there is a vegan vending machine next door). Butcher Simon Poole does the butchering for all of the European Group’s venues here, and all kinds of wonderful meat creations star on the menu.

There’s a juicy wagyu burger, which can be upgraded with cheese and or bacon that’s fantastic, along with some of the best hand cut chips you’ll find in town. Other accessible options include things like steak, dim sims, pork skewers, Coney Island chilli dogs, churros, salads and sandwiches. For those who are a bit more adventurous, there are many treats to be had. Think grilled bone marrow, chicken heart, liver and gizzard yakitori, and blood-sausage and devilled-egg hamburgers. Yes, this is a place that’s designed to keep the every-person happy, as well as the foodies and post shift chef crowd.

For drinks it’s wines by the half bottle, craft beer, and filter coffee. Go with a friend or go solo, pull up a stool at the bar, and enjoy the kind of food that you never thought you’d have the pleasure of indulging in at an hour when any sensible person is sleeping.
