Seven Donegal restaurants are celebrating earning coveted spots on two influential foodie lists for 2022.
Food critics John and Sally McKenna and Lucinda O’Sullivan published their Top 100 lists in the Sunday newspapers at the weekend, signalling the ‘ones to watch’ in 2022.
The Olde Glen Bar in Glen village, with Chef Ciarán Sweeney at the helm, continues to stir up the Irish food scene by earning a place on both lists.
The Sunday Times printed the 30th edition of the McKenna guide, with three notable Donegal names on the list: Fisk @ The Harbour Bar in Downings, The Lemon Tree – a MICHELIN Guide restaurant in Letterkenny, and The Olde Glen Bar.
Lucinda O’Sullivan’s 100 Best Restaurants in the Sunday Independent recommended Chandpur Indian restaurant in Donegal Town, Quay West in Donegal Town, Anderson’s Boathouse in Killybegs and The Olde Glen Bar.
The common theme in both guides is that Irish food lovers are spoiled for choice nowadays. The quality of eateries is not confined to cities either, and restaurants are becoming destinations in themselves.
