Alejandro Saravia’s Farmer’s Daughters is set to open in Melbourne’s 80 Collins precinct after three years in the making.

The Gippsland-centric venue is slated to launch on 28 January, and features three levels for guests to enjoy.

“Farmer’s Daughters brings a sense of place for everyone that wants to discover Gippsland, and I want to help share this vision whilst shining a spotlight on what I believe to be one of the most important farming regions in Australia,” says Saravia.

“Farmer’s Daughters will be a place that allows diners to escape; to take a journey into the countryside and connect with the real food culture of Victoria.”

A deli will be located on the ground floor and see an open kitchen, retail pantry and gourmet deli come together.

The space will offer everything from pastrami rolls to poached trout and a selection of products from Victorian farmers and makers.

The restaurant will sit on the middle level, with head chef David Boyle joining Saravia in the kitchen, which will highlight wood and charcoal cookery.

Gippsland produce will be on show throughout the menu, with Beverage Director Matthew Jensen taking the same approach with the wine and beverage lists.

Finally, a rooftop bar will reside on the the upper level. Guests can sip on a range of cocktails, local beers and wines and take in the rooftop garden.

Bookings are now open.
