Fine dining duo Chef Paul Hynes and his front of house partner in life and the food business Edwina Hynes reopened their Michelin plate recommended restaurant last weekend after a lengthy pandemic break.
The pair’s La Cote restaurant on Wexford quayside look forward to serving up the best of seafood and modern cuisine from 5.30pm to 9pm Wednesdays to Saturday for the coming season.
Putting their newly delivered Michelin sign in place quayside Paul commented; “It feels unreal to be back with the team in the main kitchen and we are excited to share our new tasting menu with our customers. There’s seafood and gluten free dishes included so both our regulars and visitors should enjoy our offering over the coming months in a comfortable and safe space”.
Edwina added; “We have spruced up our room and all Covid safety procedures are in place alongside a professional team of informed wait staff – the summer with our Cheeky Cod food crate on the riverfront was a great success and enjoyable but being back to what we do best – serving locally sourced food in a welcoming indoor setting is very satisfying”.
From the MICHELIN GUIDE point of view, La Cote on the main promenade of Wexford’s historic town is a welcoming and personally run restaurant. It comprises two homely rooms with grey oak flooring and Cape Cod inspired blues. Local seafood is at the heart of their good value five course €45 menu.
Paul and Edwina look forward to operating in the new industry normal after a successful reopening at the weekend in their multi award winning restaurant. They are all set for the run up to the Wexford Opera Festival and Christmas activities albeit with less numbers but with more passion than ever to grow and succeed with their loyal team of staff.
