The Iveagh Garden Hotel on Dublin’s Harcourt Street is celebrating one year since it first opened its doors, with a new vegan menu in its restaurant, Elle's Bar, as well as a new low-calorie drinks menu.
Devised by head chef Darren O'Brien, the new vegan menu features dishes such as cauliflower goujons, a vegan Asian curry, beetroot carpaccio and a moussaka. There are also vegan desserts such as almond rice pudding.
The Conscious Beverage drinks menu features several low-calorie concoctions. Each drink on the list contains 130 calories or less.
A new outdoor terrace area has recently opened, in time for the summer season. A new Botanical Brunch will be on offer every Saturday.
The main menu at Elle’s Bar & Bistro has also been revamped for the summer, and features dishes such as a superfood salad, and chicken sriracha. Head chef Darren said: “The inspiration behind these choices were what’s in season, what is local and what is popular, so I gave some old favourites a twist.”
Darren continued: “All the ingredients on both our vegan menu and the summer menu have been sourced using the freshest, local ingredients. Sustainability is at the heart of the hotel and I wanted that to be a part of the food ethos in the kitchen also.”
A new bottomless brunch is also now available every Saturday, from 11am until 4pm. Priced from €11.50 per person, the brunch menu at Elle’s has dishes such as eggs and avocado and brioche French toast to go with their house cocktails list.
