The Cliff Townhouse Celebrates 2 AA Rosettes with Brand New Summer Menu and Kitchen
Sean Smith, the talented chef at Cliff Townhouse, is delighted with his newly refurbished kitchen. More spacious, allowing him to be even more creative, he is celebrating the new space – and the recent two AA Rosettes award – with a flurry of new summer dishes on the Cliff Townhouse menu.
From fresh starters like a Ceviche of Scallops with Fennel, Yuzu and Orange or the finger-licking richness of Poached Lobster with Orange Beurre Blanc and a summer salad, to mains including a Crab Lasagne with Summer Vegetables and Shellfish Bisque, and a Royal Fish Pie, a classic made extra-luxurious with lobster, Sean as ever showcases his affinity for cooking fish and seafood of all kinds beautifully.
His newly spacious kitchen will allow Sean play around with a wider selection of changing specials too, including plenty of seasonal, fresh, local fish and vegetables, incorporating them into daily menus.
One of the fun non-fish dishes on the new menu, designed for sharing, is a Whole Honey-glazed Duck, lacquered in honey and covered in spices – Szechuan pepper, coriander, lavender and cumin. Once the duck is cooked it’s displayed at the table, then served with the dark meat as a salad starter and the duck breast with new potatoes and asparagus as a main course.
There’s a couple of new summer desserts too, including a divine sounding raspberry mousse with raspberries, short bread and yoghurt ice-cream.
With an enviable view of St. Stephen’s Green, The Cliff Townhouse is an ideal location to enjoy a summer seafood feast.
