The presence of so many Irish place names on the menu indicates how much this place has embraced the Slow Food ethos. Many ingredients are regionally sourced from specialist Irish producers, with local flavors prevailing throughout: You may find Thornhill duck breast served with black garlic; chicken with black pudding and buckwheat; or a tasty filet of roast hake in a brown butter emulsion. The wine list is expertly chosen, and there’s a delightful seasonal cocktail menu—if it’s on the menu when you’re there, try the beehive julep, with spiced whiskey, Manuka honey, and black-walnut bitters.
