Our Latest Great Place To Eat - The Supper Club

Wednesday 10 August 2016

Tom Kay’s Supper Club, on Cork Street, is the perfect place to go for a bite, be it heavy or light, and couple of cocktails with friends, where you can have really high quality food without all the pretension.

On my suppertime visit, the menu was made up of an eclectic mix of small and large plates, as is the fashion, with fab dishes like ricotta and parmesan gnudi, finished with sage butter; lobster spring roll with mango, avocado, cashews and a sesame and lime reduction; as well as monkfish tempura with a rice wine pickled slaw and Oriental dipping sauce. The shellfish on offer was really good with Oysterhaven oysters available hot or cold; crab crostini with Atlantic crab and avocado; and half or whole local lobster all making an appearance. That being said, the carnivores are certainly not forgotten at the Supper Club, with braised beef short ribs with sesame crusted sweet potato; tenderloin of pork with fennel and potato rosti; and lamb rump with basil and mint peas all ready to satisfy their meaty cravings.

I decided to start with a half dozen oysters, served Rockefeller style with a garlic and herb crumb, which were absolutely cracking, whilst Brendan opted for a beautiful foie gras terrine paired with a fab blackberry and thyme jelly and crostini.

Having thoroughly enjoyed our first plates, we set our sights on something a little bigger to follow up. Himself chose the Supper club steak, cooked to a perfect medium as requested, and served with herb mash, asparagus and béarnaise sauce, which he happily devoured, along with a side of twice cooked chips with parmesan and a truffle vinaigrette. I, on the other hand, went for pan-fried John Dory fillets served with braised fennel, Oysterhaven mussels, fondant potato and a saffron and red pepper sauce, which was delightful alongside the occasional stolen chip from across the table.
