Drennans Restaurant Review
A magnificently restored stained-glass window featuring St. Cecilia (the patron saint of musicians) playing her pipes and looking down on diners sets the mood in this classy restaurant run by Lawrence Delaney, who has years of experience pleasing hungry customers. Delaney is interested in Irish history and named his restaurant after Dr. William Drennan, who coined the sobriquet the "Emerald Isle." Reminiscent of a Parisian-style bistro, it offers an early-bird menu (£12.95 for two courses) laden with sirloin steak, buttered chicken, pork belly, lamb, and fish. Options from the regular dinner menu include sea bass over tagliatelle with asparagus and Parmesan shavings. For dessert, the warm sticky toffee pudding in butterscotch sauce will linger long on the taste buds. The restaurant is BYOB. As befits a restaurant with a musical saint, each night a pianist switches effortlessly between blues, pop, and jazz.
