A deft flick of the wrist could launch a fish from Dublin Bay into a waiting pan in Aidan MacManus' kitchen. As it is, the ocean's finest tends to travel the 400 yards from Howth Pier in a rather more sedate fashion since only the pick of the morning's catch passes muster in this renowned fish restaurant. We have nurtured a network of trusty suppliers who can rustle up everything from locally caught lobster and crab to organically grown vegetables. Most of our fish is landed here in Howth and is sourced for us by Oceanpath, Nicky's Plaice and Beshoffs to our specifications. Incidentally, our Smoked Salmon comes from the last traditional smoking kiln in Howth, in Nicky's Plaice, and smoked to order for us by Nicky & Martin McLoughlin. (Well worth a visit – all are welcome). Lobster and crab come from Balscadden Bay, only a stone's throw from our front door, where our friend John Sheridan fishes exclusively for us. Other shellfish, such as Oysters, Mussels, Clams etc come from approved beds in various locations, according to season. Where we can, we source our vegetables from local organic growers. Similarly, our cheese-board features only Irish Farmhouse cheeses. Wild Game in Winter is also a favourite.
