Peter Everett, a former Eurotoques Young Chef of the year winner, returned to his native city of Waterford after stints working with Ross Lewis and Graham Neville. Right from the day of opening, the composure and confidence of his cooking was evident, and Everett’s became the leading destination in the city. The dishes on the short menus – four starters, five mains; four puddings – are familiar – scallops with confit chicken wings; beef cheek ragu ravioli; brill with hazelnut and cauliflower; brown sugar tart – but it’s the finesse of the cooking and the panache of the presentation that takes this food into the stratosphere. Great value for money – the lunch and pre-theatre menu at €27.50 is a steal – and both the front room and the downstairs vault are charming and atmospheric.
