Cornstore Group keeps focus on local produce and in-house innovation
with Summer Seafood and Infused Cocktail Collection.
Sticking to their ethos of ‘quality food sourced locally’ –Munsterrestaurant group the Cornstore now bring you the bounty of our local seas, with the launch of their Summer Seafood Collection. A menu positively obsessed with the freshest fish and seafood, delivered daily from only the most reputable suppliers.
Seafood enthusiasts and crustacean connoisseurs can expect anything from Whole Baked Fish wrapped in seaweed and fresh herbs to Natural Rock Oysters on ice with Himalayan salt and lemon juice, and if your taste buds aren’t watering yet, a Whole Grilled Lobster with clarified butter might just do the trick.
However, it’s not just the chefs having all the fun this summer. The group’s resident mixologists have taken on the task of ageing fruit and plant based elixirs in-house resulting in a range of signature infused cocktails. ‘In recent years we’ve seen an increase in flavoured spirits and liquors across our shelves’, said restaurateur Padraic Frawley. ‘We’ve decided to prove that nothing can beat the real thing and our customers love the fact that we’ve always got something new to try’.
To date this group has far from gone unnoticed by industry experts. Past accolades include Restaurant Association of Ireland ‘Best Restaurant in Limerick 2012 & 2013’ (Cornstore Limerick), ‘Best Kids Size Me in Munster 2013’ (Cornstore Cork) - an award that recognises restaurants that ensure children have access to healthier food options, Hotel and Catering Review Gold Medal Award ‘Best Casual Dining Ireland 2012’ (Cornstore Cork), along with both restaurants being nominated as top five finalists in the 2012 Licensing World Bar Awards for ‘Best Cocktail Bar’.
Specialising in seafood and steak, the group’s restaurants are located in bothCorkandLimerick. Just last month they launched an in-house beef dry-ageing process in each location – being the first restaurant group in Ireland to invest in such an initiative. This current project looks like the perfect summer marriage, sure to see these restaurants become a pilgrim destination for any seafood and cocktail lovers.
