With its approachable, wine-friendly menu, suave good looks and impressive wine offering, City Wine Shop has become a firm favourite for wine lovers and Europhiles alike.
“It feels European, yet it’s so very Melbourne .. And of course there’s stylish food to match”. The Age Good Food Guide.
In addition to casual, all-day snacking (think freshly shucked oysters, house-made charcuterie and specialty cheeses) Ian’s menu here welcomes longer lingering too (if you’re keen to stick around and explore the extensive wine list). While the ever-changing blackboard list of rustic mains may shift with the seasons, cult classics – like the panko-crumbed chicken schnitzel with Italian-style coleslaw – have earned legions of fans and are unlikely to budge. City Wine Shop is open daily until late (check website for hours).
