Our Story

Our Story

If nothing else Model Milk is a reflection of the personalities that conceived it. The restaurant was built around a series of conversations amongst ourselves.

The first thing we did was throw out all checklists, pre-conceptions and rules that govern what a “good” restaurant ought to be.

Instead, we focused on things we all love about restaurants and what we loved about this amazing space. During this process we feel like friendships have been forged and a wonderful old space has been given new purpose and a new life.

The Menu

The Menu

We start by asking ourselves: what do we want to eat today, rather than what do we want to cook today? The former satisfies the belly, the latter only the ego. We created a restaurant where you can experience food that is both classic and original, both innovative and comforting.

Our philosophy is – buy the best ingredients we can afford and try not to screw them up before they hit the plate. We source great quality local and regional products, prepare them simply, showcasing them at their best.
