Ireland of the Welcomes
GROW HQ is located on the Dunmore Road, in Waterford City. The magnificent restaurant is surrounded by four acres of edible gardens and is home to GIY Dining. This summer's dining will be on the terrace overlooking the vegetable gardens and underneath the HQ stretch tent, amongst the summer fruit gardens and orchard.
GROW HQ exemplifies what can happen when a restaurant is run by a great community organisation like GIY who put "local food" at the epicentre of everything that they do. With just 112 steps from plot to plate, dining at GROW HQ sees visitors consume what will probably be their lowest-food-mile meal.
The GROW HQ ethos is simple, GROW, COOK, EAT. Head chef JB Dubois uses the very best of their own homegrown produce to make the tastiest dishes and the menu changes depending on the season and the produce available.
Each day there is a scrumptious brunch menu, a variety of delicious sourdough sandwiches (from €9) along with a selection of quiches (€11.50), summer salads (€10) and some treats too, with a daily selection of homemade scones, flapjacks, cakes, pastries and desserts not to mention daily specials and tasty sides. Customers are also encouraged to "create a plate" of their liking from the extensive hot and cold seasonal mezze menu, which includes triple cooked chips, a veggie patch salad, a chilli and honey cheese, root veg falafels with ferments garlic and cucumber dip to name but a few.
