Review on One Pico
Not far from St Stephen's Green and the city centre, this chic restaurant makes an impressive showcase for Eamonn O'Reilly's vivid contemporary cooking. The décor is plain, simple and uncluttered, but it's the artfully presented food that really grabs the attention.
Complexity is the name of the game, and O'Reilly doesn't shirk from putting out some daringly sophisticated combinations. Spiced turbot keeps unusual company with caramelised chicken wings, celeriac fondant, red wine and summer truffles while roast squab pigeon could appear with confit orange, five-spiced turnip, turnip purée and seared foie gras.
Foie gras also crops up among the starters (perhaps paired with seared scallops and Puy lentils), while desserts might encompass everything from coconut and vanilla pannacotta with mango jelly and lime sorbet to a take on peach Melba involving raspberry foam, almonds and mint caramel. The substantial wine list has a good spread of bottles from the Old and New Worlds. Eamonn O'Reilly also owns Bleu on Dawson Street.
