Guest review of FXB by Lady Aga

By this week's guest reviewer - LADY AGA
FXB Crow Street, Temple Bar

"Of all the FXB’s Steak and Seafood restaurants in Dublin, we choose Crow Street in the heart of bustling Temple bar.   As you would expect for a Saturday evening in the City the restaurant was buzzing with the chatter of customers and the hard working staff. 

On arrival at the restaurant for our 9.15 booking we were promptly seated and given menus.  As recommended by the maitre d’ we selected the House red Doppio Passo Primitivo IGT Salento 2007 (Italian) – which had a warm fruity flavour all served by a very friendly Wine Waiter. 
We choose to eat off the “Dine in Dublin Restaurant Week” set Menu which was running for the week.  To start I went for the Duck Liver Pate which was superbly accompanied by sweet brioche and fruit chutney while my dining partner went for the Devilled Lambs Kidneys with the strong flavours of the Dijon mustard and the bacon and kidney’s  it would be hard not to be impressed. 

We both went for the restaurants famed steaks, while I had the 10oz Sirloin rare with Béarnaise sauce, he had it Blue with Peppercorn sauce both were cooked to perfection.  Not to forget the sauces and the home cooked fries which were quite simply very hard to stop eating. 

As there was chocolate on the menu there was very little decision to be made by me I went for the “Dessert of the Evening” Chocolate tart with hazelnut ice-cream ... yum, or so I thought until I tasted the other dessert, Baileys Crème Brulee which was light and creamy with the slight hint of Baileys and the crunchy caramelised topping and now I’m torn. 
All this for €40 a head ..... Now that is impressive.
