Fresh from being named Auckland’s Chef of the Year, Ed Verner of Pasture is rolling into town to offer a taste of his new bar, Boxer, joining fellow cocktailian and envelope-pusher Luke Whearty of Melbourne’s own Byrdi.
Pasture’s name might sound like a breezy idyll, but Ed Verner and his team work hard for the money. Whether it’s with a pig crumpet, a wall of house-made vinegars that includes a whole mutton bird steeping in a mason jar, and a stunning, one-of-a-kind wagyu course seasoned with the power chords of the mighty AC/DC, Pasture goes its own way, and adventurous diners have been quick to give chase, with the restaurant winning Metro magazine’s Restaurant of the Year.
Now, Ed has expanded (very slightly) to offer cocktails at an extension of Pasture called Boxer, and it’s Boxer that Ed will be showcasing for Melbourne’s keen eaters and drinkers this winter. In the Pasture spirit, this is a seriously intimate affair, and seats are very (very) limited, with only 30 available a night over two nights.
Ticket price includes a five-course cocktail and food pairing from Ed Verner.
(Tuesday) 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
