Garret and Brid’s Kilkenny restaurant is the destination address in the South East. Every significant birthday, anniversary and celebration brings the revellers to this handsome room, and it’s a commonplace to hear Campagne described as “The Thornton’s of Kilkenny.” Garret Byrne’s cooking has no time for fashion: he is devoted to the great classical cuisine of France, and he has the chops to execute his beloved dishes with cracking exactitude – pork jowl with choucroute and turnip purée; pheasant en croute with tarragon jus; wild venison with Savoy cabbage; fig tart with blackberry ice cream. This is intricate cooking, almost devotional in its quest for perfection and sublimity, and eating in this lovely restaurant sates the senses, whilst inspiring the imagination. No need to wait for your birthday to pay a visit, however.
