Black Cow Bistro
In the Art Deco premises of Luck’s butchers, Black Cow Bistro is a modern tribute to Launceston’s meat-eating past, offering a range of locally sourced premium beef and an excellent wine list. Unashamedly worshipping quality produce and skilled preparation both on and off the farm, Black Cow’s menu gives diners the whole story of your dinner from beginning to end. Seafood, game, and traditional vegetable dishes are there too, but why would you order any of these when there’s prime steer eye fillet produced by Swift (just down the road at Longford), or Cape Grim 35-day, aged-and-hung rump from Smithton’s lush pastures? Topped with a puck of shallot and red wine-infused butter, and together with a glass of local pinot noir, this is a beef connoisseur’s heaven.
