Suesey Street Celebrates Spring With A New Garden Room
Year-round al fresco dining is now on the menu at Suesey Street on Dublin’s Fitzwilliam Place with the creation of an inviting new Garden Room. Already a destination for fine dining and excellent service, Suesey Street, under the expert eye of Manager John Healy, now has even more to offer. The 40 seater terrace has been completely revamped with a chic new look, and a fully retractable roof for good weather entertaining.
With a brief to create a comfortable all weather outdoor dining space, interior design agency 21 Spaces used a palette inspired by nature, with tones of purple, dusky pink and warm greys, reflecting the changing seasons. On a practical level, a cream quarry stone floor complements the original brick wall and dark wood topped tables which flank long banquette cushioned seating. A cosy crackling fire below a mirrored feature fireplace and festoon lighting creates a feeling of warmth, with light flooding the space from a long wall of windows.
Monochrome patio chairs feature 100% merino wool Foxford throws for added warmth. Pops of colours are courtesy of the very contemporary hand cast concrete planters on each table, by Irish homeware designers Ail+El. Brightly patterned in geometric yellow and turquoise, each is planted with a succulent or cactus.
The timely launch of the Spring Summer menu sees Chef Richard Stearn introduce a number of new dishes to celebrate the new season and the best of seasonal Irish produce.
New dishes include:
Irish water braised crispy squid, chorizo and parsley risotto stuffing and saffron and basil mayonnaise - €16.00
Roast rack of Wicklow lamb, pickled carrots, celeriac & turnip cake and a red wine jus - €30.00
Pan fried fillet of cod, steamed Cork mussels, clams, Dublin Bay prawn fritter, bouillabaisse, aioli and Irish cavolo nero - €27.00
Chef Richard said: “It’s practically impossible not to feel positive when spring arrives. The first month of spring brings longer, warmer days and the beginnings of new growth. Here at Suesey Street ,we follow the seasons through the year, and the months of March, April and May are some of our favorites.”
“Running through these months, the menu at Suesey Street will have the likes of fresh Irish waters squid stuffed with chorizo and parsley risotto with a basil and saffron mayonnaise, rack of Wicklow lamb with slow cooked lamb neck and heritage carrots. Our fish special uses the best of the season with the likes of wild turbot, black sole and John Dory, which changes daily. We have a plethora of interesting garnishes at our disposal this time of year such as purple sprouting broccoli, wild garlic, asparagus, an abundance of wild mushrooms, mussels from Cork and in the warmer months we will be using fresh peas and broad beans.”
With a beautiful bar, restaurant, private dining space and now new Garden Room, Suesey Street has been a popular dining destination since opening in 2015. The appointment of Head Chef Richard Stearn saw the introduction of new menus and regular seasonal specials such as a Lobster Festival during July and August, and Wine Wednesdays – with a selection of exceptional wines at less than half price.
Suesey Street is open Tuesday to Saturday, with lunch from 12pm to 2.30pm and dinner from 6pm to 9.30pm. An early bird menu, priced 2 courses for €27 and 3 courses for €32 is available Tuesday to Thursday from 6pm to 7.30pm and on Saturday from 6pm to 6.45pm.
