Foodies on Tour: Dinner at Eastern Seaboard, 13 August
July 25, 2011 in IFBA Events
We’re happy to announce a special IFBA outing in Drogheda, Co. Louth on Saturday, 13 August. We’ll be meeting at the brand-new Brown Hound Bakery, which was just opened by Jeni and Reuven, owners of the famed Eastern Seaboard Restaurant in Drogheda. The bakery features amazing coffee and an array of fresh-baked treats, including real American-style doughnuts!
We’ll meet at the bakery at 5 p.m. for a personal tour, then we’ll stroll next door to the Eastern Seaboard Restaurant for a 6 p.m. dinner and chat with Chef Reuven (voted best chef in Leinster in the 2011 RAI awards) about his culinary creations, many of which feature locally sourced ingredients.
There is no special IFBA menu, which means you’ll have access to everything on the regular Eastern Seaboard menu. We can accommodate 18 people max and will need RSVP confirmations by Monday, 1 August (Eastern Seaboard is a very busy restaurant, so it’s important for us to confirm the final number by then; they book out every Saturday evening). Email your RSVP to Clare (An American in Ireland) at .
The Drogheda Irish Rail station is within walking distance to the bakery and restaurant (they are next door to each other). The last train from Drogheda to Dublin is at 10:05 p.m., so you’ll have plenty of time if you decide to do the train route. There is a large parking lot at the restaurant for those who choose to drive themselves.
