The SpitJack founders are opening a new restaurant in Brown Thomas this weekend

Another new food destination to add to the list!

An exciting new culinary treat is on the way to Brown Thomas Cork later this month, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Inspired by the finest French cuisine and showcasing the very best in local produce, Brown’s Brasserie is being brought to life by the team behind The SpitJack on Washington Street.

Laura Sureda and Richard Gavin introduced their innovative rotisserie-based cooking to the city back in 2017, extending that offering into Limerick almost three years ago. The duo will partner with John O’Mahony for this latest venture, having seen John coming on board with the SpitJack team in 2018 taking on the role of Executive Head Chef within their culinary team. 

The trio’s newest dining destination promises everything and more from a group that believes in supporting local producers, creating exceptional foodie experiences, and providing brilliant service with a smile.

Diners can enjoy a truly delicious brunch menu featuring a unique update on a range of classic Eggs Benedict dishes, including The Legrand topped with sumptuous crispy streaky bacon, the Saumon Fumé with Ballycotton Smoked Salmon, and the Le Noir for those who need their Jack McCarthy Black Pudding fix.

For something lighter, the Le Petit Déjeuner pairs one locally sourced side with any-style eggs, or pick from three varieties of French toast (berries, apple & almonds, dry cured bacon) to tickle your palate. 

For a heartier bite from 12 noon (1.15pm at the weekend), an elegant selection of salads, light bites, mains, and desserts will tempt taste buds. The French Dip includes rotisserie North Cork sirloin steak and is a mouth-watering munch.

Brown’s salads are topped with Irish cheeses or local seafood, while a beautiful West Cork Chicken Ballotine, Ballycotton Hake, or a Hamburger with two 3 oz patties will satisfy the hungriest of patrons. Apple Tart Tatin and a simple yet sumptuous Mille Feuille are highlights for those with a sweet tooth. 

Both menus include vegetarian options with an eye-catching Vegan Pithivier, a roasted vegetable and butter bean ragù, complete with grilled asparagus, tomato salsa & rocket, a meal designed to get customers coming back time after time! 

Completing the Brown’s Brasserie experience is an eclectic drinks offering. From their Thyme for Aperol Spritz cocktail, Aperitivo options, signature Brown’s Sangrias, to a Classic Mimosa, Bellini or Elderflower Royale, fresh juices and homemade Kombucha all accompany an impressive all-French list of white, red, rosé and sparkling wines. Liquors, soft drinks, as well as a selection of Roast 34 coffees and all the usual tea favourites are stocked.  

Opening on November 19th, Brown’s Brasserie’s Breakfast and Brunch menu will be available Monday to Friday from 10am to 12pm, Saturday from 9am to 1pm, and Sunday from 11am to 1pm. The daytime menu will be available Monday to Friday from 12pm to close, and Saturday and Sunday from 1.15pm to close.
