Sleek CBD diner Botswana Butchery is hosting a very special once-off dinner degustation this September. Partnering with whisky experts Nikka, Botswana Butchery is set to deliver a six-course culinary journey championing exceptional meat, including four courses of wagyu. This longtime Kiwi favourite is known for its signature luxe meat- and seafood-focused offering.

Pop into the New Zealand-born eatery on Wednesday, September 6 and you'll be served four wagyu-centric dishes followed by a palate cleanser and dessert. Rump tartare is dressed with Jerusalem artichoke and truffles, rib chunk shavings are served with a burned butter emulation, and there's a beef shin paired with celeriac and preserved lemon.

Throughout the evening, guests will also be treated to paired whisky drinks and talks from guest speakers. On the lineup: Culinary Director Angel Fernandez on each dish, Botswana Butchery Bar Manager Reuben Beasley on cocktails and Nikka Whisky Ambassador Marcus Parmenter will speak about whisky blends.

With room for 300 punters across three levels, Botswana Butchery Melbourne features handsome Charlotte Spary-designed interiors with marble-topped counters, sunken dining areas and sumptuous booth seating, as well as two terraces overlooking Flinders Lane.
