This Meat-Free Six Course Tasting Menu Sounds Like a Seriously Good Friday

Does anyone else shudder at the thought of overcooked, soggy fish dishes served up and picked at begrudgingly to observe Good Friday tradition? Bland, overcooked salmon darnes begone, as one of the Sunny South East’s most celebrated seafood eateries is set to serve up a six course meat-free tasting menu this Friday, opening for the first time on the holy day this year.

La Cote Seafood Restaurant, run by chef proprietor Paul Hynes and front of house Edwina Hynes, has proven itself to be a must try for lovers of treats from the deep, and what better time to feast on these treasures than Good Friday.

With the relaxation of licensing laws taking effect for the first time this year, matching wines will be offered with the €60 tasting menu, which will include house-made gravadlax as well as locally sourced hake from Kilmore Quay, for an additional €25.

In addition to locally caught seafood, diners can expect flourishes of hand foraged produce, which Hynes personally seeks out, be it wild garlic from Ferrycarrig or samphire from Curracloe. The ethos of showcasing the very best of the locality is evident in each of Hynes’ creations, and tasting your way around Wexford’s finest produce sounds like a great Friday indeed.
