Model Milk is a restaurant with a unique story and a unique experience waiting for you. This restaurant has been built around many different conversations had by the owners. They started by getting rid of the many rules that govern a "good" restaurant and started with something more unique.

The focus from the beginning was on what they loved about restaurants and what they could do to bring the friendship they shared to the surface. They took an old space and started creating new life within it and Model Milk was born.

The Menu

The menu includes small plates, large plates, drinks and more. They created a place to experience food from classic to original to comforting and more. The philosophy of Model Milk is simple: use the best ingredients possible and turn them into something amazing.

The menu is packed with locally sourced items and regional products. Some of the favourites include:

  • Fricasse of Calamari
  • Quail and Snales
  • Cured Trout
  • Shrimp and Grits
  • Driveiew Farms Lamb
  • 4K Farms Pork Duo
  • Lois Lake Steelhead Trout
  • Brant Lake Wagyu Sirloin Cap
  • Crispy Fried Duck
  • Nashville Hot Chicken
  • And More!

They provide a Sunday Supper, which changes with each week and is served up until 10pm. This supper features wholesome items and they are all served family style for $35 per person.

Along with the food menu, you can choose from plenty of white and red wines by the bottle and by the glass. They also provide an extensive list of bourbons, cocktails and plenty of different beers.

The restaurant provides two spaces for dining privately. The Private room seats up to 18 and is perfect for intimate gatherings. They also have a new, exclusive event space, which seats up to 60 people.
