About The Restaurant
Located in the centre of Stepaside village in a brand new development at 'the top of the town' you will find The Box Tree and Wild Boar which opened about three years ago and has settled in very well and is super popular. The décor is lovely – Argentina meets Chelsea meets France with lots of French grey painted woodwork, cowhorn chandeliers, and very expensive looking deep olive green leather banquette seating contrasting with ‘tartan rug’ upholstered chairs.
The emphasis at the Box Tree and Wild Boar is firmly on local and artisan produce and the food and the prices are really good. Starters include dishes such as foie gras parfait with pear and vanilla puree, lime jam, pain d'epice and toasted brioche. Ravioli of wild mushroom and spinach is with a tarragon cream whilst crayfish cocktail comes with semi dried Heirloom tomatoes and baby gem. Scallop and pork belly sees a delicious scallop perfectly seared and paired with melt in the mouth confit pork belly, cauliflower puree and caulifower beignet.
Mains include fabulous Himalayan salt aged fillet of beef served in top notch style with fondant potato, baby leek and carrots, crisp onion and poivrade jus. Pan fried seabass is with chive mash, vegetable nage and citrus veloute whilst rump of lamb is with gratin potato, peas, green beans, asparagus and mint and an aubergine puree. Brill is with sauteed spinach, crab agnolotti and vermouth cream whilst a fab aged rib-eye is with chunky chips, sauteed spinach, grilled tomato, onion and Cafe de Paris butter.
If you have a sweet tooth think of luscious raspberry and mango vacherin, or apricot souffle with apricot marmalade, macaroon, and apricot sorbet. They also do a fabulous assiette of Valrhona chocolate - hot fondant, crumble, chocolate dome, lollipop and white chocolate cream. If cheese is your thing, they do an excellent selection of artisan cheese with apple chutney, grapes fig, bread and crackers.
They also have an excellent lunch and value menu.
