Aiden Byrne has returned to Tower 12 with the launch of restaurant MCR. Open from Friday 7 December, Aiden and his team will offer 6 or 12 course tasting menus that showcase the best of the dishes with which he has become synonymous.
The menu will draw on his career, seeing traditional flavour combinations, crafted into something new and surprising.
He says: “We are so happy to be able to make this happen before Christmas, but we just had to make it work. So many people made contact when the news broke last week, while it’s been a crazy week turning this around. It means that we can bring back the tasting menu and get back to basics. Doing what I love, sending food and watching as our customers connect with the food.
“While we are focused on delivering an experience and the 12-course tasting menu, the key ingredient for the new restaurant is putting the guest at the heart of everything we’re doing. If our guests want something other than what is on the menu, if we have the ingredients then we can make it work for them.”
There will also be an express lunch of 3 or 6 courses available but the main objective for the restaurant is to give guests time to enjoy their meal and create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere where old friends and new are treated like loyal regulars.
When he was just 22, Kirkby-born Aiden became the youngest chef to receive a Michelin star. He went on to work in top restaurants in London and Dublin, winning his second Michelin star when at the Commons restaurant.
