Don’t you just love restaurants that are also champagne lounges? Chef Ian Orr counts Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Coldplay among his fans, so you can see where the VIP vibe comes from.
You too will feel like one of the glitterati in this uber-sophisticated place. Brown’s has a clutch of awards and once you visit, you’ll see why. The décor is super funky, channelling the Art Deco style of the Roaring Twenties.
The food is sublime. Ian has worked at the River Café in London and in Shanks with the late great Robbie Millar. Who wouldn’t love his ravioli stuffed with Portavogie prawns, lemon and ginger followed by 24 hour cooked shoulder of Lough Erne lamb? Both of these courses cost less than £22 and at dinner time too! Such good value for money. Even better is the early bird option which even runs on Saturdays.
Note to self. Must go to one of Ian’s Saturday afternoon cookery demonstrations followed by a three course meal.
