07th Jul 2017
With the San Pellegrino Young Chef of the Year 2015 award held tightly under his belt, 24-year-old Irishman Mark Moriarty has previously been lauded by world-renowned chefs, from Massimo Bottura to Grant Achatz. Here, he takes us with him on his ultimate fantasy dining day out.

BREAKFAST

I spent a summer here caddying at the nearby Country Club in Brookline, just ten minutes up the road. Eagle’s Deli was a daily stop off for their classic American breakfast fare. I was a big fan of the French toast; other highlights include the double stacker sandwich, three-egg omelette and cream-cheese bagel. This was one place where I remember being immersed in the real American diner experience. One of Boston’s finest.

LUNCH

Xi’an Famous Foods, New York

I was introduced to this place by a chef friend last March. The original shop was a street food shack in Queens, serving Northern Chinese fare. Having featured in an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, the business took off and they now run 11 outlets. The food is insanely tasty and authentically Chinese with Middle Eastern influences due to the city of Xi’an’s proximity to the Old Silk Road in ancient times. Try the lamb and cumin burger with pickled jalape?os, the braised oxtail and chilli hand-ripped noodles or the lamb-shoulder dumplings – simply mouth-watering.

DINNER

Le Bistrot Paul Bert, Paris

A must visit for any food lover in Paris. The entrance on Rue de Paul Bert is hidden behind a curtain. It’s old-school Parisian cuisine cooked in a dining room from the 1950s. Expect things like blanquette of veal, rib eye of beef with bernaise, grilled sole – la Grenobloise, Paris-brest, lemon tart – the list goes on. Order the cheese and you get the whole board for five minutes! The set dinner menu is great value at €40 and all the wines are served by the glass. +33 143 722 401

DRINKSInline images 5
Duck and Waffle, London

Located on the 40th floor of 110 Bishopsgate, here you’ll find perhaps the best view from any bar in London. The restaurant, run by chef Dan Doherty, caters to everyone’s needs and is open 24/7. The highlights of a fantastic cocktail list include a hay-infused whiskey and malt mix, as well a woodland negroni. Sit back, take in the breathtaking view and indulge in some of the solid bar snacks on offer.
