Andrew McConnell has a new wine bar planned for Cutler and Co
First published on . Updated on .
Having secured his reputation as one of Melbourne's most influential chefs, (thanks to the success of his restaurants Cutler and Co, Cumulus Inc and Golden Fields) Andrew McConnell is turning to the drink. That's right, folks. McConnell's next venture is going to see the addition of a wine bar to Cutler and Co called Economic Industries, and if that doesn't excite you, you clearly need to revisit a McConnell establishment pronto.
“We’ve always had a strong passion for using the best food produce available, which is usually organic and biodynamic. I want to apply that philosophy to the wine list and have a dedicated wine bar operating next door" says McConnell. So, at some point early next year (so long as the hoops are jumped through and red tape doesn’t get too sticky) we are going to see the opening of a nifty new wine bar. “We have the 400 strong hero list here in the restaurant, so next door I want to have a small, concise, interesting list that focuses on different production methods and natural wine.” We want it, too.
