$$$$ Maynooth Irish Fodor's Choice

This new sensation of Irish cuisine was awarded not one but two Michelin stars only months after it opened. It didn't come as a surprise to those in the know, with the husband-and-wife team of Jordan and Majken Bech Bailey both having worked in some of Europe's most feted eateries. The name, pronounced "imshur," is Irish for weather, and the focus here is Irish food and produce, played with and transformed in inventive new ways. The fifteen course (don't worry, many are petite little offerings) tasting menu includes wonders like Flaggy Shore oyster in roasted koji butter and Dublin Bay skate with leeks and chicken-skin butter sauce. Each course can be matched with either wine, beer, cider or some very inventive juice concoctions. The stark, modern dining room is in contrast to the lively cocktail bar when the inventions continue.
