I recently headed over to Raglan Road to check out their Rollicking Raglan Sunday Brunch. The brunch menu features entrees ranging from $8 to $26 and runs from 11am-4pm. Entertainment starts at noon and features the Raglan Road Dancers and the house band Creel. Chef Kevin Dundon is also treating guests to a traditional Irish Sunday lunch with “Host the Roast!” which must be booked 48 hours in advance. Prices for the experience run from $35-$55 per person, depending on the type of roast ordered. There is a 6 guest minimum for this lunch.
I wanted to order one of their specialty cocktails, and the Jay’Gail Sangria truly caught my eye! The drink features a combination of Magner’s Cider, Peach Schnapps, fruit liqueurs & squeezes. I know, I know… There’s no wine in this. BUT! Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. The fruity, bubbly Magner’s is an interesting change from wine and soda water. I’d gladly order this one again. It was hard to not order a second to sit back and watch the entertainment!
I was served some Irish bread that was dense but slightly soft with a firm yet chewy crust, and topped with oats.
It was hearty and delicious on its own, but it was paired with something different that you don’t find alongside bread on property…
Olive oil with a Guinness reduction! I was told by the bartender that the reduction would be sweet like honey, and it truly was. Alongside the more rustic bread, the flavor combination was difficult from which to pull myself away.
