I received this e-mail last week from Kevin Carley who is behind Le Tire Bouchon, a French restaurant based in Wexford. I’m going to be calling in in the next couple of weeks, but for the moment, I only have Paolo Tullio to go on, who says of the restaurant:
Le Tire Bouchon is an excellent restaurant run by two young men with passion and energy. I expect it to continue to improve, but make no mistake, it really is very good now. One to try as soon as you can, and almost certainly a star of the future.
Le Tire Bouchon are currently offering some special deals, as told by Kevin in his e-mail:
Hello, my name is Kevin Carley, and along with my business partner Arnaud Clement, we own Le Tire Bouchon restaurant in Wexford town. The restaurant is situated above the Sky and The Ground Pub. It’s not, just, another restaurant, it’s a high class French style fine dining experience not to be matched anywhere else in Wexford. Taste of Ireland with Paolo Tulio says we are one of the best in the country, never mind just Wexford.
Briefly, Arnaud who is the maitre’ d, is from Brittany in France, where he trained for years in 1 and 3 michellin star restaurants. He’s been in Ireland for over 10 years and before moving to Wexford, he was the restaurant manager in The Merrion Hotel in Dublin. Arnauds brother, Laurent has his own Michelin star restaurant in France. I have been working in kitchens since I was 15 and I have almost 18 years experience.
I’ve worked in to many places to mention, but before Arnaud and I opened Le Tire Bouchon, I was celebrity chef Kevin Dundons sous chef in Dunbrody Country House for almost 2 years. It was at Dunbrody where I met Arnaud as he was the restaurant manager there.
The purpose of this e-mail is to let you know about the amazing value to be had at our restaurant that we believe wont be beat anywhere in Wexford and it would probably be hard to find many restaurants in Ireland that could match us. Our deal is a traditional 5 course French meal, Plus a glass of wine for an amazing price of just 23.95.
So if you want to include the wine as a course, it’s actually a 6 course meal for 23.95. This deal is available all evening from Sun to Thurs.
I’ll let you know my thoughts on Le Tire Bouchon once I’ve had a chance to sample their delights.
