The five-star InterContinental Dublin is putting Irish asparagus into the spotlight with a special seasonal menu this May.
The hotel’s Executive Chef Alberto Rossi is making the most of asparagus season in Ireland (which runs from May until June) by sourcing green asparagus from Drummond House in Baltray, Co. Louth, as well as white and purple asparagus from the Wye Valley near Herefordshire in England.
Guests can choose from small dishes including Asparagus and Egg (Warm White, Green and Purple Asparagus, Hollandaise, 63C Egg, Grana Padano toile); Asparagus, Burrata and Truffle (Salad of Asparagus, Burrata, Truffle dressing); or White Asparagus Pinacate Lobster Salad to start.
For mains – Atlantic Halibut and Asparagus (Pan Fried Halibut, Green, White and Purple Asparagus, Peas, Broad Beans, Romanesco Broccoli); Asparagus and Lobster (Grilled ½ Lobster, Braised White and Purple Asparagus, Tarragon Hollandaise Sauce); and Asparagus Risotto (Carniola Risotto, White, Green and Purple Asparagus).
The special seasonal asparagus menu will be available from 4th May until 1st of June in Seasons Restaurant and the Lobby Lounge at InterContinental Dublin, with dishes starting from €15.
