Review on Dylan Hotel, Tavern Restauant
A truly amazing transformation has taken place at this grand – but discreetly situated – Victorian hotel. Thanks to a mainline injection of funky metropolitan chic it is now one of the 'in' places for Dublin's hip crowd. 'It has been "party central" for some of the biggest party animals in the country since it opened,' noted the Sunday Independent – which spotted the fleet of flash wheels permanently parked outside.
The Tavern Restaurant is perfectly in tune with the rest of the hotel and the kitchen delivers racy contemporary dishes to match the mood, with some potent combinations to get the pulse racing.
Duck foe gras and confit terrine is served as a starter with sweetcorn purée and croquette, lamb's lettuce and truffle vinaigrette, while main courses might venture far and wide for halibut with braised scallion, shiitake mushrooms and spiced broth or hen pheasant with red wine braise, polenta and celeriac purée. Desserts often include combos and assiettes celebrating different fruits (the five-part pear version involves jelly, compote, poached pear, pannacotta and a cinnamon-infused sorbet).
