As the team behind popular Howth restaurant Mamó jet off for some well-deserved new year R n’ R, Australian Chef Tom Foster and his team will be holding the fort in their absence, and stepping in behind the pass to host a series of exciting weekend pop-ups.
Foster will be at the helm between Friday Jan 12th to Sunday Feb 4th, when diners can look forward to enjoying an innovative seven course tasting menu.
Having landed in Ireland earlier this week, Foster was quickly out and about meeting producers and suppliers ahead of his stint at the helm in Mamó.
First stop was at renowned Higgins Butchers, where the acclaimed Aussie chef was instantly wowed by the quality of the lamb which he plans on featuring as part of the menu at Mamó this weekend.
The Aussie chef who was recently lauded as Young Chef of the Year for 2023 by the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide, boasts a sterling cv that features stints at restaurants such as The Ledbury in London, in addition to head chef roles at Bentley Restaurant and Bar and Cirrus Dining in Sydney.
We can’t wait to see what he has planned for Australia Day on Friday, January 26th!
Tickets for each pop-up event cost €90pp, plus an optional extra of €60 for wine pairings.
Bookings via Eventbrite.
