The Sooty Olive
The menu at this bustling Waterside restaurant is full to the brim with home-grown ingredients – testament to chef-owner Sean Harrigan’s passion for keeping it local. Your half rack of ribs has been slow cooked in McDaid’s Football Special, a nostalgic childhood drink in these parts; your smoked salmon is drizzled with Broighter Gold lemon oil; the mushroom cream sauce on your ribeye steak is laced with Quiet Man Whiskey, matured and bottled in the city. As for the restaurant’s name? It derives from a popular fly fish, used to catch wild trout.
