Deliciousness Delivered to Your Door. Liberty Grill’s Superb "Home Dining" Dinner.

🌃Deliciousness Delivered to Your Door.

🌃Liberty Grill’s Superb Thanksgiving Dinner.


Quite appropriate that Liberty Grill, Cork’s long-established and well-loved New England influenced diner, chose Thanksgiving to launch their Home Dining offering. "At Home" or "Click & Collect" or "Takeaway" or whatever the term has been a shining light as this isolating year turns over into grim winter (maybe not so grim after Friday's lifting of Level 5) and Liberty's offering is as bright as any. Weekend evenings have been made happier. And more good news as Liberty intend to continue with their Home Dining offering!

I could had enjoyed the pumpkin soup, the Maple Glazed Turkey and the Key Lime Pie but, when ordering from a multi-choice menu, picked a different three courses. I’m quite sure the American style dishes would have been very good but our picks, which did include some American touches (the dessert for one), were all excellent. 

And, no matter what you choose, delivery is included in the price (€30.00 pp for three courses). Amazing food, comforting and exciting, super value and so dexterously organised with very detailed instructions and, with the timings given, so easy to coordinate the courses.

We each picked the same dishes but no reason to stick to that formula as you’ll find it facile to start eating each course, even if different, together. A lot of thought has gone into this whole package and you could well see the Washington Street restaurant stick with this (not necessarily this exact menu) into the uncertain future. 

So thanks to Denis and all the team at Liberty and now let us make a start on the food. Three starters on offer. And ours was the Baked Cooleeney Brie (crumb covered). The County Tipperary cheese came with a small salad and a cranberry coulis. The warm cheese is delicious but that cranberry gave it all a crucial lift and we were on our way!

Four different mains to choose from and our pick was Hake en Papillote:  baked Ballycotton hake in a paper parcel with orange, fennel, samphire and a caper butter. The description was brief enough but this was a mega mains. The fish parcel was bursting with flavour, enhanced by a tempting jus.

Quality was incredible and the quantity too. No less than with three sides, again all brilliant.

Gratin Potatoes - roosters, garlic, Parmesan.

Green Bean casserole - fresh green beans, panko crumbs, herbs, onions, mushroom, sherry, nutmeg, Parmesan, more…

Brown Buttered Carrots - Carrots, Butter brown sugar.

There was quite a delay, induced by the generous portions of the earlier courses, before dessert was “tackled”. The Apple and Maple Upside Down Cake kept the standard high, a delightful finalĂ©, sweet as can be flavours and the moisture soaked texture enhanced by the little tub of whipped cream! 

I hope all my American friends had a great Thanksgiving. And here’s to more superb offerings from the Liberty Grill even if the weekends immediately ahead are not festivals. Check out their social media for updates.
