DUBLIN, Ireland - The Coburg at the 5* Conrad Dublin, has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes in recognition of their culinary excellence.

Formerly Alex Restaurant, Conrad Dublin's new eatery is The Coburg, a relaxed, brasserie featuring an all-day menu that is locally-inspired. A stark contrast from its predecessor, The Coburg holds a unique place amongst five star hotels in Dublin by deliberately steering clear of a fine dining offering and instead, offering a menu that is more aligned to today's cosmopolitan Dublin, with a more relaxed vibe.

Commenting on the award, General Manager, Martin Mangan said,  "What an amazing start to 2017 for Conrad Dublin and our dedicated Team.  2016 saw the completion of our vision, and we are thrilled to receive this coveted award from the AA, only months after completing our rennovation programme.  The Coburg opened in April 2016, so we are especially delighted to receive 2 AA Rosettes."

Executive Chef, Dmitry Stroykov, who uses ingredients from many local producers and suppliers, has created the Coburg menu. Dmitry Stroykov, said: "The ingredients we use in the kitchen are central to our menu creation and guests recognise that many producers and suppliers are local to the area. Our guests call by for a casual brunch, a late business lunch, or an early pre-theatre supper, which offers real flexibility to diners who don't want their schedules determined by a restaurant's opening times."

The AA has been awarding Rosettes since 1955, which are awarded annually to hotels producing fine cuisine. There are only 41 restaurants in Ireland that currently have the award offering an insightful guide to diners on where to eat. AA Rosettes are awarded solely for the quality of the restaurant's cooking that demonstrates consistent standards of all dishes on the menus. To specifically achieve an AA Rosette Award, innovation, greater technical skills, consistency and judgement in combining and balancing ingredients are required. Rosettes are only awarded to those restaurants, which aim for and achieve higher standards. They must exhibit greater precision in their cooking and selection of quality ingredients.  Commenting on the award, AA states, "Strong physicals aside, it is the proactive and hospitable aptitude demonstrated by so many of the team that really impresses, nothing is too much trouble when it comes to guest care, all of this underpinned by sound professional service procedures. This was very much in evidence in the Food & Beverage areas. An award of 2 AA Rosettes for Culinary Excellence being made in respect of the Coburg Brasserie".

The Coburg is open daily from 12pm to 11pm, housed on the ground floor of Conrad Dublin, located in the heart of Dublin City on Earlsfort Terrace. For bookings, telephone 01 602 8900, email reservations@thecoburgdublin.com or visit www.thecoburgdublin.com .

About Conrad Dublin
The Iveagh Gardens, once known as the Coburg Gardens was once again the inspiration for the design of the new Brasserie, which pays homage to the former event headquarters of the legendary Royal Horse Bazaar.  Materials used include leather, marble, porcelain and brass, which complement the equestrian theme that is subtly woven into banquette seating, mirrors, light fixtures and artwork.  Champagne lovers will be enthused by the brasserie's Champagne table, which allows diners to enjoy elevated views over the restaurant and taste a selection of the finest bubbles including Henriot, the house Champagne.
