Eastern Seaboard Bar & Grill
Here’s the thing about Reuven Diaz and Jeni Glasgow’s Eastern Seaboard restaurant: the fact that it’s in the middle of a commercial strip in the middle of a suburban housing estate in the middle of pretty much nowhere in Drogheda actually makes the place even hipper and cooler than you could believe. You step in the door of both the ES – and it’s sister bakery, Brown Hound – and you pretty much step into Coolsville: stunning room, smashing style, great service and, from Mr Diaz, cooking that is the star of the county. He sources ingredients with unerring care and even the simple things – garlic crab claws with sourdough and salad leaves; roasted beets with St Tola goat’s cheese and Puy lentils; braised pork stew with apples – are cat walk productions: colourful, brimming with flavour, cooked with exactitude. Excellent value also helps explain eight years of runaway success.
