Autumn is a time for changes, from the weather and the leaves on the trees, right down to our menus. We recently took a look at what’s in season in October (you can check that out here), and one of the big things that’s back on the menu is our game festival.

Game festival at Suesey Street

We have an excellent team in our kitchen who love working with the freshest seasonal ingredients so the changing of the seasons is a time of great excitement here. Our chefs like nothing more than working on new recipes and changing things up in the kitchen. Our head chef Richard has put together a menu that’s packed with the best in Irish game, from wild rabbit and grouse to partridge and Wicklow venison. We’ll be sharing some of his recipes in an upcoming post so make sure to keep an eye on the site for those. If you’d like a sneak peek of some of his favourites you can check out this recent feature in the Sunday Business Post.

Launching our game festival menu

We were delighted to welcome a number of esteemed guests to the Suesey Suite, (dressed beautifully with floral arrangements from Blooming Amazing) for a special evening showcasing our new game festival menu. Guests were welcomed on arrival by our fabulous GM, John Healy, resplendent in his gamekeeper attire.

We got the night off to a sparkling start with glasses of Charles Heidsieck champagne, followed by some delicious game from Wild Irish Game, paired with a selection of complimentary wines from Findlater Wines. It was lots of fun to share our new dishes and everyone had a very enjoyable evening.


Benefits of game

Game comes in a number of forms, including winged game such as pheasant and grouse, and ground game like rabbit and venison. Our wild game is all locally sourced, meaning that as well the game enjoying a natural diet and the associated benefits, it’s also got a low carbon footprint. Game is quite lean and easy to cook, making it especially useful if you want something quick to make after a long day. As for health benefits, game is low in fat and cholesterol and high in omega-3 and iron, making it a great choice for people looking for a healthier option on their menu.

Bringing game season home

Preparing game can be intimidating if you aren’t familiar with it but your local butcher can help you out. Ask them about the best ways to cook your chosen game, what pairs well with it and how to cook it perfectly. If you prefer to leave the hard work to someone else you can always pop into us in the restaurant and we’ll take care of the prep, the cooking and the clean-up. We’re currently taking lunch and dinner reservations so if we’ve managed to whet your appetite for some gorgeous game you can make a reservation right here. We’re looking forward to welcoming you in!

We're Back!

Suesey Street Reopens On July 1st

And we couldn’t be happier. First of all, thank you for your patience. It has been a challenging few months but we are delighted to say that we'll be opening our doors to guests from July 1st, and we can’t wait to see you. We do hope you got to sample our ‘Stay at Home Supper Club’ throughout the lockdown and you will still be able to order some of our house favourites direct to your door over the next couple of months but if you’re feeling like getting out of the house for a fine dining lunch or dinner then book online or give us a call.

Our GM, John Healy, Chefs, Sommelier, Wait Staff and Office Team have been working hard over the past 3 months to make sure that the Suesey Street you come back to is as good as, if not better than, the Suesey Street you know and love. We will have some amazing new dishes for you to try and some of our classics that you can’t live without.

Your safety and the safety of our staff is paramount so we will be following all HSE and recommended Health & Safety Guidelines in order to keep you all safe and comfortable. Be sure to keep an eye on any and all safety signage throughout the restaurant and have respect for all of the other diners that will be joining you as we reopen. As always, you can expect a very warm welcome from all of the Suesey Street Team.  We're looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces and some new ones too.
