On March 17th, 2015 Ireland comes to Boston, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the award winning Met Back Bay restaurant located in Boston’s historic Back Bay. Join Michelin-starred, award winning Chef Oliver Dunne from Dublin Ireland as he presents a multi-course dinner inspired by Ireland’s historic cuisine and shaped by the country’s current culinary revolution.
Hosted at Met Back Bay and by restaurateur Katy Sidell, the idea springs from Sidell’s constant culinary travels and her distinct desire to educate and entertain Bostonians with truly amazing Irish cuisine and culture. Sidell has partnered with Jameson Irish Whiskey to bring Chef Dunne to Boston. “It was our goal to bring one of the hottest talents in Ireland to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a very deliberate culinary manner. We certainly achieved that with Chef Oliver Dunne accepting our invitation to fly from Dublin and prepare this dinner at the Met Back Bay” said Sidell .
Born in Dublin, Oliver Dunne has worked in some of the world’s best restaurants. Having spent his early years learning his craft under the Michelin acclaimed Chefs Gary Rhodes (City Rhodes), Anthony Demetre (Putney Bridge, Gordon Ramsey (Restaurant Gordon Ramsey) and Shane Osborne (Pied a terre) in London.
