A brand new restaurant is about to open in Ballydehob, further solidifying the West Cork village’s reputation as a foodie hotspot.
Local chef, Davitt Conroy and his wife Anna relocated from New York to Schull with ambitions of bringing something truly original to the dinner scene on Leeside.
Having built a reputation for sensational dinner parties (including a five-course tasting menu served on a cliff edge overlooking the ocean at Three Castle Head), now the pair have announced the opening date of their first brick-and-mortar spot, Mosaic, which will open at the old Vincent Coughlan’s Pub on Main Street on Tuesday, July 5th.
The pair say Mosaic will offer contemporary Mediterranean-style food and drinks made with fresh ingredients from local suppliers including Gubbeen, Skeaghanore Duck, Woodcock Smokery as well as Macroom Buffalo and Lost Valley Cheeses.
The menu is inspired by the flavours of the sun and sea (and the years chef Davitt spent working on private yachts) with dishes from Spain, France, Italy, Greece and Morocco.
The opening line-up features prawn pil pil with Gubbeen Chorizo, black garlic butter and bread for dipping, Woodcock Smokery smoked haddock cured with pomegranate juice, and grilled Macroom Buffalo Feta with Gloun Honey and thyme lavender pita chips.
There’s also a lamb tajine with date molasses, apricot, cinnamon, veggies, potatoes, and couscous.
“Diners can also expect signature cocktails, sangria by the pitcher, and wine on tap,” they add.
Say no more, says us.
Mosaic will be open for dinner from Tuesday to Sunday and lunch from Thursday to Sunday. Bookings begin on Tuesday, July 5th 2022, and are available through their website at mosaicballydehob.com.
