Review on The Westbury Hotel, Wilde
A prime site right in the heart of cosmopolitan Dublin is part of the attraction of this renowned hotel. The revamped fine-dining restaurant named Wilde (formerly the Russell Room) is the first choice for top-end meals: it's a lively, stylish and thoroughly contemporary rendezvous with big picture windows and modern artwork on pale yellow walls.
The kitchen delivers accomplished, sharp modern food to match the setting using carefully sourced seasonal ingredients. Artisan Irish produce gets top billing, and the menu is strong on grills from certified Black Angus beef, although the repertoire also spans everything from seared wild sea bass with creamed leeks and chorizo to caramelised beetroot risotto with baby spinach, feta and pea shoots.
Starters might run to tuna tartare with avocado salsa and lime dressing or lobster bisque with Arran Island seaweed and lemon crème fraîche, and the carefully chosen wine list has some fine vintages at fair prices. For a very different experience, make your way through the glitz and glamour of the opulent marble foyer to reach the lounge, which is famous for its afternoon teas.
