Restaurant Forty One at Residence, Stephen’s Green

IMG_6053

It can’t be denied that I’ve had a couple of weekends of living it up by anyone’s standards! Two 5 star hotels in the space of a week is the stuff of dreams for me so with my overnight-er in Powerscourt Hotel & Spa the previous week, I also had a major treat of a night in town staying in The Merrion (more on that next week!) along with dinner in the renowned Restaurant 41 on Stephen’s Green. The restaurant is well known for a few reasons… firstly, chef Graham Neville has built up a fantastic reputation – and one which I was eager to see the food living up to! And also, the stunning town house that houses the restaurant also holds the exclusive members club Residence. All in all, this was one fancy place I was excited for!

WeΒ  booked in for the pre-theatre, priced at €38.50 for 3 courses with tea / coffee and running from 5.30 -6.30 on a Saturday. As you can see in the above photo, it’s a beautiful building and entering it, the interior is equally as stunning.

The beautiful dining rooms on the top and middle floor are spacious, light filled and elegant.

Starters of Merinda Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Watermelon, Aged Balsamic & Roast Scallops with Truffled Garden Onion and Coral Bisque were delicious, in particular the pairing of fresh watermelon with the mozzarella.

An new season Asparagus trio with mushroom sauce was light and something absolutely unique for me and the slow cooked Lamb with aubergine was perfectly cooked and presented.

Contrasting choices for dessert of a chocolate fondant with blood orange sorbet and a cheese plate with crackers were fabulous in equal measure.

We finished up with two creamy cappuccinos and some coconut macarons… the perfect end to an absolutely faultless meal.

I can’t recommend Restaurant 41 more highly for a special meal, the staff were efficient and friendly, the food and surroundings just gorgeous and the pre-theatre menu is amazing value for money.

  1. Your Instagram feed has made me very jealous lately! I regularly see pics from Restaurant Forty One, I’d love to try it. I love the look of the watermelon and mozzarella starter. Is that artichoke on the plate?
