BRINGING THE NORTH,
TO THE NORTH
“ay up lad, you reet?”
Right smack in the heart of Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs, Thornbury to be precise, you’ll find Northern Git – a real gastronomic delight.
Locals lovingly call it ‘The Git,’ where they’ve mastered the art of dishing up fantastic food and pouring perfect drinks with a wink and a no-nonsense attitude.
Northern Git or simply ‘The Git’, flung open its doors back in June 2014, introducing a fresh and fabulous experience to the folks of Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs. Stepping into ‘The Git’ is like walking into your own laid-back haven, where the vibe is all about honest, no-B.S. dining and sipping.
Our passion for all things food and drink perfectly matches our unyielding commitment to top-notch service and quality. Our culinary maestro, Owner/Head Chef Michael Slade, takes immense pride in crafting house-made goodies from carefully chosen local and seasonal ingredients, each one handpicked after some serious research.
Now, let’s talk about Michael Slade – he earned the quirky title ‘Northern Git’ over a decade ago thanks to his buddy, James Wilkinson. See, the name’s a blend of Michael’s roots in Northern England and the term ‘Git,’ which can mean a noble-born or, in simpler terms, a bit of a rascal. The name caught on and turned an idea into the amazing reality we have today. Cheers to that!
