Whilst food lovers associate JP McMahon’s Aniar restaurant with starry, stratospherically ambitious cooking, if you pause and take a close look at the foundations of the restaurant’s food, you find that what you are getting excited about is, em, a blue cheese scone. Or a piece of soda bread. Or a chicken heart. McMahon’s secret is that he pays just as much respect to simple things – bread; scones; kelp; butter; leeks; pickled onions – and because he does this, and because he has deep foundational skills, Aniar cooking is rock-solid, and rock steady. To get the best from the Aniar experience, choose the tasting menus with the wine pairings, which will bring you up close to unique combinations of taste and texture that you simply will not find anywhere else.
