I feel I’ve been writing a version of the same review of Liath ever since the early days of its forerunner, Heron & Grey. Liath’s story is one of grit, determination, obsession and no small amount of hard work; a modest little restaurant in a market in Blackrock that didn’t even have its own loo, driven by people who had the ambition to dream big and the talent to land a Michelin star. Heron & Grey evolved into Liath, which had a makeover, retained the star, completed another upgrade, and earned another star. Somewhere along the way, it got a loo of its own.
