Enda McEvoy, of Michelin-starred restaurant, Loam (loamgalway.com) in Galway, shares his favourite international restaurants that make the most of seasonal cooking.


Relae, Copenhagen

Relae prides itself on its no-fuss, amazing food. Quality comes first in the less-than-plush neighbourhood of Jaegersborggade where, against the odds, chef Christian Puglisi has created a food community in inner-city Copenhagen. Don’t miss … The trout, chicken skin and mushrooms dish. restaurant-relae.dk

Ox, Belfast

Ox earned its first Michelin star this year. The menu is designed around the best seasonal produce and chef Stephen Toman has made vegetables the star attraction – wonderful textures and flavours make every dish a delight. Don’t miss … Confit vegetables, pearl barley and mushroom foam. oxbelfast.com

Lyle’s, London

Clean, modern dishes where the best of British produce is presented simply, in a lovely pared-back room. Head chef James Lowe has a firm understanding of seasonal produce and is at the top of his game. Don’t miss … Pumpkin, whey butter and chestnuts – a perfect dish. lyleslondon.com

Saison, San Francisco


Expensive but amazing. ?Saison? is a word that fittingly describes this restaurant in harmony with the seasons. Chef Joshua Skenes changes the menu here on a daily basis, the emphasis on back-to-basics cooking; for example, vegetables cooked over an open flame. Don’t miss … The tasting menu.
