Review on Number Thirty Two Restaurant
Susan Heraghty is the driving force behind this admirable neighbourhood rendezvous, tucked away in a pleasant quarter of Dundalk close to the museum. It's a place that has garnered its share of plaudits along the way: 'Magnificent food and super atmosphere,' raved the Irish Independent.
The restaurant is now spread over two floors and it has a refreshing lack of pretension, which runs from the no-frills décor to the assured cooking. Expect a 'tantalising amalgam of modern European food' garnished with a generous sprinkling of eclectic and global touches: typically diverse main courses might range from home-smoked cod with saffron and herb risotto, capers, pickled lemon and croûtons to grilled coriander, lime and honey chicken.
Among the list of starters you might find a tian of crab and celeriac with confit tomato or spiced lamb samosas with pear and ginger chutney, while desserts have featured plum and apple crumble as well as chocolate and Amaretti mousse cake. Early-evening 'express' menus (5.30 – 6.30pm Mon-Thu) are worth checking out.
