L'Atitude 51

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Planning a trip to France for summer 2016? Here’s a tip: don’t bother.

Instead, if you are headed down to catch the ferry at Ringaskiddy, just detour into Cork city. Park the car on Union Quay, and push open the doors of L’Atitude 51. Sit down at that old butcher’s block that doubles as a bar and take a look at the blackboard. Petit salé aux lentilles, with morteau sausage? Bavette? Tartiflette?  Maybe a glass of Chateau Ventenac?

The cooking and the vibe in Beverley Matthews’ wine bar and restaurant deliver that Anton Ego Moment: you are transported back to your first trips to France, and to those little cafés where your eyes and taste buds were first opened to what a dish of lentilles is all about: savoury soulfulness, and goodness, and culture
