Each one of these dishes was perfectly executed and a couple were truly exceptional.
Yes there are plenty of chefy flourishes, but the cooking is assured and shows real pedegree
McDonagh’s plates are delightfully enjoyable, and easy and fun to eat. This is very mature cooking for a very young restaurant.
