Variety Jones

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

If you have so far failed to experience the empathy and energy that comes from inspired pairings of food and wine, then dinner in Variety Jones will show you just how exciting it can be to find the perfect vinous partner for a dish of spaghetti alfredo, or loin of venison with lardo faggots. Indeed, so important is the matchmaking of wine and food that the VJ wine list changes every month as chef Keelan Higgs and sommelier Vanda Ivancic mix and match in their search for a Love Island coupling. When they hit their mark – oysters with Vietnamese dressing and a glass of Tuffeau blanc de blancs; a glass of Burja with hearth-griddled sole; a little Chateau Haut Rian with jamaica cake and Sarawak pepper – the result is sensational. So, decide what you want to eat, then let them choose matching wines, and it’s happy ever after.
