The Wild Goose Grill
The inspiration for the name of this Dublin restaurant was a play of the term, The Wild Geese – the Irish exiles who were recruited by the French Army, many of which went on to make their living in the wine trade in France and Spain.
Respecting the name, a style was designed that would reflect the history and tradition behind it. This was combined with the ambience of a classic French bistro – to evoke a warm welcome and buzz.
Warm grey velvets like that of the down of the grey goose were used to upholster the classically designed chairs, combined with silk roman blinds for luxury.
A wine-laiden bar with fine detailing doubles as a reception counter. Centre-piece in the room is a wine storage display which at first glance gives the illusion that the room is only half the size and that the openings are mirrors. Elsewhere aged-effect mirrors reflect light and sparkle yet add intrigue.
Lighting was carefully designed so that the restaurant has a candle-lit ambience without any use of actual candles. Mirrored furniture and polished surfaces add a touch of class.
