Here is what they had to say:

 

Kai Café and Restaurant

“At the award-winning Kai Café + Restaurant, light streams through a generous roof-lantern into the rustic stone-and-wood dining room, giving a visceral sense of connection to the west coast’s rugged landscape, from where the ingredients for its dishes are sourced.

With a focus on doing things simply, owners David and Jessica Murphy have created in Kai a food experience that is at once basic and innovative, unadorned and yet beautiful. Having recently joined the Food Made Good (Sustainability), their ethos is one of conscious symbiosis with their environment.”

The Sustainable Restaurant Association is founded as a not-for-profit organisation by Giles Gibbons, Simon Heppner, and two restaurant owners, Henry Dimbleby MBE (Co-Founder of Leon, Co-Author of the School Food Plan and Founder of StreetFeast) and Mark Sainsbury (Founder of Moro, The Zetter Group & Grainstore).
The SRA created a unique framework to simplify the complexity of sustainability for the industry.

Tinar with Kai and 3fe

Coffee is obviously our raison d’être here at 3fe but over the last couple of years our chef Hillary O’Hagan has managed to gain quite a reputation with our food offering. We recently decided to kick things on a bit and are delighted to announce our upcoming colab dinner on the 28th May.

TINAR is an occasional event we’ll be holding at 3fe where we’ll get one of our favourite chefs to come in and collaborate with Hillary on a tasting menu. This month we’ve chosen Jess Murphy of Kai in Galway who has built a reputation as one of the best chefs in the country and won many awards along the way.

This is ticketed event limited to 40 people and we’re selling tables of four and two**. Wine can be paid for separately on the night and we’re working on some really interesting pairings and pricings for those interested in trying a few different types.

Doors crack open at 7pm on Thursday 28th of May and we’re looking forward to a great night with some excellent food and drink. This event is sure to be extremely popular, so book early to avoid soul-crushing disappointment.
