Sweetness in Dublin

YouTube Preview Image

My brother Sean and I have headed to Dublin to visit some accounts and attend the Digital Media Awards tomorrow night. Tonight, we decided to splurge and feast at Thornton’s. Here’s a video of the desserts. Mine was a warm chocolate tart with raspberry sorbet and rasberries. Sean had a blood orange souffle with mandarin sorbet. Memorable!

For those interested, Kevin Thornton has a lively blog here.

    Wow Kieran – looks amazing. I am very jealous. As memorable as Murphy’s I wonder!? ;-)

    Don’t know if you got my email, but please disregard, as I will now be there and with any luck so will Grandad from Head Rambles and Fiona from The Waiting Game! ;-) Look forward to finally meeting you both!

    Deborah – Yeah – should be a bit of craic. I did say I’d cover for you. And Sarah, it was very good (especially the desserts), and very expensive. I liked that the menu is quite short (three options for a la carte main course). The wine list was impressive, as was the fact that Kevin Thornton came out of the kitchen and went table to table greeting…
