Situated on the edge of the city centre by Lough Foyle, Browns has built a local following since 2009. Get in the mood with some bubbly in the champagne lounge, then head for one of the white linen-swathed tables in the sleek, contemporary dining room. The kitchen turns out an appealing roll call of modern Irish ideas, with fish and seafood strong suits. Scallop mousse could appear with leek, smoked caviar and polenta, ahead of roast fillet of monkfish matched with crispy chicken, curried cream sauce and samphire. To finish, the flavours of orange, tarragon and bergamot put an intriguing spin on custard tart.
