    ABOUT

     
     

    CASUAL DINING WITH A SIMPLE APPROACH, GREAT PRODUCE COOKED WITH INTEGRITY.
     
    After twenty-three years in hospitality, chef Stuart McVeigh has branched out on his own with his first venture, Union Food & Wine. Located in Melbourne’s inner-northwest, the relaxed dining space features a seasonally driven menu with roots in classic cooking and an emphasis on Australian produce.

    Union Food & Wine guests can expect dishes like beetroot cured salmon with blood orange and avocado, beef cheek cooked in sherry with poached quince and chestnut, and date pudding with sesame ice-cream and salted caramel. The wine list is small but progressive, featuring some great pours as well as microbrews.

    Stuart long dreamed of creating a rich, community-driven dining experience for his fellow Ascot Vale locals. However, his quarter-of-a-century in hospitality spans kitchens far and wide. After working at London’s Pied a Terre, 2 Michelin Star The Square and 3 Michelin Star Chez Nico, McVeigh decided to lay roots in Melbourne and promptly achieved 2 hats (AGFG) for Le Restaurant. He also spent time at Fenix and the Botanical (with Paul Wilson) before moving on to Sofitel’s No35.
