WILDE restaurant opens this month at The Westbury hotel, a member of the Doyle Collection, in Dublin, and hopes it will breathe fresh air into the city’s restaurant scene with ‘vintage glamour’.
The restaurant claims to have the most exciting menus in a dining room that has a sunlit covered terrace. The new restaurant is designed to evoke the decadence of 1930s design and celebrates carefully sourced, seasonal Irish produce with much-loved local dishes and classic international dishes, WILDE says.
A covered garden terrace, unique in Dublin, floods the space with natural light and the presence of greenery aims to give an al fresco feel throughout the restaurant.
The company said the restaurant is stylish yet easy-going and has a menu, created by executive chef Sandeep Singh, that boasts a generous seafood selection.
Sandeep Singh said: “Our food philosophy at WILDE is about simplicity and respect for ingredients. We seek out the best artisan and local suppliers and create dishes that allow the quality of the ingredients to come together in exceptional dishes.
“Coupled with our approach to food, we want to offer a dining experience in a unique space that is beautiful and atmospheric. We’re in the heart of Dublin 2 and believe WILDE is the perfect viewpoint from which to take in everything the city has to offer.”
In addition to the dining space, WILDE has a cocktail bar with button backed chairs, serving crafted aperitifs, signature gin & tonics and digestifs. The selection of gin includes Dingle Gin (Kerry), Blackwater Gin (Waterford), Gunpowder Irish Gin (Leitrim), Glendalough Spring Gin (Wicklow), Malfy Gin (Italy) and Hendrick’s Gin (Scotland).
