Harte's Bar & Grill
Barry Liscombe is one hell of a cook, and he heads up one hell of a kitchen in Harte’s, in the square in Kildare town. It’s the kind of kitchen that never lets up. Instead, these guys are aiming to nail every single dish, whether it’s their benchmark potato skins, or braised blade of beef with turnip and Milleens cheese purée, or the 70% chocolate tart with Rossmore ice cream. Owners Paul Lenehan and Ronan Kinsella have assembled all the elements of the modern Irish gastro-pub with infinite care, so there are craft beers, a gin board, excellent front-of-house staff and, especially, Mr Liscombe’s powerful cooking, which pays as much respect to pork neck and parsnips as it does to the prime cuts. Harte’s is worth the detour.
