New man in charge at Kinsale’s Man Friday
Daniel Horgan takes over from his father Philip at the Kinsale restaurant which is celebrating 40 years in business
A new outdoor dining terrace has opened at Man Friday in Kinsale
The restaurant underwent significant refurbishment between January and May, including the addition of a new bar and a terrace with views of the harbour, for al fresco dining.
It is now opening for lunch as well as dinner, with a menu of lighter salads and open sandwiches, as well as burgers – beef and Hegarty’s Cheddar, as well as a calamari version with roast garlic aioli, jalapenos and rocket, served during the day, alongside some Man Friday customer favourites.
“We don’t plan on moving away from our signature dishes, such as our seafood chowder, but there is definitely demand for additional, lighter daytime options also,” Daniel Horgan says.
Horgan junior followed his Ballymaloe induction by working at several top London restaurants. He spent a year at Scott’s of Mayfair and 18 months with Skye Gyngell at Petersham Nurseries, before moving on to St John and then Nopi.
Back in Co Cork now for 18 months, he has opened Eden Café in Dwyer’s Electrical at Forge Hill, near Cork airport, as well as taking over the reins at Man Friday.
