You need to taste Paradiso Cork’s new six-course spring menu
It’s time to make a return visit.
If you’ve enjoyed many a magical meal at Paradiso over the years, their fresh new spring menu is about to lure you back to Lancaster Quay.
And if you’ve never visited Denis Cotter’s world-famous vegetable-based restaurant, you’re in for a treat.
Here’s the deal: “Coming into spring, we are putting away the roots and tubers that have served us well over the long winter,” says Paradiso’s manager Dave O’Mahony.
“The spring menu will focus on the early crop of asparagus from Gort-Na-Nain Vegetable Farm as well as nettles, wild garlic, artichokes, and rhubarb.
This is always an exciting time of year, but even more so this year as our new six-course menu format is the perfect way to showcase seasonal produce.”
Diners can expect dishes like asparagus, black garlic, preserved lemon, and rosemary puree with viola and pan-roasted artichokes, nettle broth, lemon arancini, pine nut crumb, and smoked tomato purée.
Desserts include rhubarb semifreddo with ginger crumb and aged Coolea with stout toast and beetroot relish.
As well as a tantalising new menu, Denis also has a new cookbook to celebrate this spring; Paradiso: Recipes & Reflections is set to go on sale on May 5th.
Paradiso is open 5pm to 10pm, Tuesday to Saturday and the six-course spring menu is €65 per person. Call o21 4277 939 to book a table.
