Ireland's Best Restaurants

As you say such soundbites are obviously very good for publicity. In reality when I have spoken to RC he has a lot of very positive things to say about many chefs, however I doubt these compliments would grab the headlines.

Did you enjoy it Corrina?

It was 'simple and nice' :biggrin:

There were a few glitches (apparently the service was muppet central in the early weeks, I know people who would not go back), but I think it’s going to be a winner. He’s in a great room, in the right location, and for the main part, the prices are fair, and the food is very good. I’ll post my review after it has run.

Yep, from what I can see, Corrigan is pally with plenty of the chefs around town, the Golden Mile Cartel. And anyway, he’s the Big Cheese, so everyone wants to be his BF. McGrath is an outsider, not just because he is in Ranelagh. I get the sense that he is not popular with the rest of them, too intense and doesn't make an effort to mix with them (just speculation on my part).

(pushes open creaking door, peers into the gloom) Hello...?

There's bound to have been a few new spots opened in the last seven years for others. I can do an update on in and around Sligo if there's still anyone about....

I have no immediate (more's the pity) plans to return to Ireland but I'd love to read about what's happening with food around Sligo these days.

I have discovered in Sligo a restaurant called Miso, they serve awesome Japaneese cuisine, fantastic rolls and excellent sashimi. Now it is in the list of my favourites)))
