Chef Tommy Heaney of Great British Menu and Heaney’s has announced a brand new venture on Romily Crescent. Uisce by Heaney's will sit right next to the chef’s first restaurant, acting as an accompanying cafe and wine bar. Open from early morning to evening, Uisce (pronounced ish-ka) will serve breakfast and lunch during the day, and wine with charcuterie by night, all with seasonality and high-quality ingredients at heart.
The restaurant and bar will feature simple yet chic interiors with refectory-style tables and window seats to create a laid-back atmosphere in which to relax and chomp on that all-important first meal of the day. Breakfast will really take centre stage here, with the menu including Tommy’s homemade sausages, fresh black pudding and Heaney’s famous sourdough, with healthier options such as homemade granola and honeycomb also available, to enjoy while sipping locally-produced coffee. Meanwhile, lunch will see homemade stews and sandwiches up for grabs, and fresh bagels or crumpets stuffed with cured, cooked and smoked meats.
As night falls, guests will be able to graze on light bites such as charcuterie, cheese and a selection of world wines. The list will feature a hand-picked selection of old creations from forgotten grapes and will regularly change, with Tommy on-hand to guide guests through their choices. An expertly-curated selection of gin will also be available alongside Tommy's house craft beer on tap, and plenty more behind the bar. There are even plans for regular wine tasting sessions and events with guest makers, featuring live music and local artists, so keep your eyes peeled for updates.
