Richard Corrigan is heading east in November, opening new restaurant Daffodil Mulligan where modern Irish restaurant Nuala used to be just off Old Street. The new joint keeps that Irish connection – not only is it named after the daughter of legendary Irish street seller Biddy Mulligan but Richard Corrigan has drafted in a host of Irish talent for the team, including founder of Kings Place John Nugent and Tony Gibney, from the pub Gibney’s of Malahide, with the man himself working the fire pit.

The 60-cover restaurant will include a 10-seater oyster bar and a basement saloon bar which will have live music nights. Exact menu details haven’t been revealed yet but we do know it will feature produce from Corrigan’s country estate in Ireland, Virginia Park Lodge, with certain dishes taking inspiration from his travels.

The bar will serve craft beers and spirits and will focus on smaller Irish distilleries and producers, many of which will be available exclusively at Daffodil Mulligan.
