For One Night Only, Aniar in Galway Collaborates with Chef Meeran Manzoor of Rare at Blue Haven Kinsale
Posted by Kinsale Newsletter on Tuesday 7 May 2024

Award-winning chef Meeran Manzoor will join JP McMahon in the newly renovated Aniar 2.0 for one night only on May 30th.
In the latest edition of the Chef Swap at Aniar series and part of Blas Na Gaillimhe’s month of food in May (Blas na Bealtaine), wo unique styles of food will form a special evening, bringing a taste of the West of Ireland coupled with dishes from Meeran Manzoor’s Tamil Nadu heritage.
Meeran said, “I am deeply honoured to collaborate with JP and his team in the kitchen; the anticipation is palpable. I can’t wait to bring the unique flavours of Rare to Aniar's kitchen and Galway. I have a deep admiration for the food scene in Galway and for JP”.
Meeran Manzoor is the Executive Chef at The Blue Haven Collection and the award-winning Rare Restaurant in Kinsale. He draws upon his wealth of global culinary expertise to create a menu that is both innovative and surprising while always maintaining the integrity of the produce.
Aniar will play host to Meeran in an exclusive food and drinks pairing. Aniar has undergone dramatic changes, officially relaunching in April with a newly renovated dining room and kitchen. The result is a space that reflects the ethos and style of the west-of-Ireland-inspired food, allowing for a more immersive dining experience for guests.
JP said, “We are looking forward to welcoming Meeran to Aniar. It will be one of the most unique Chef Swaps we will host and are excited about it. I love to invite chefs to Aniar in order to collaborate and learn. Meeran has a unique style and I think he will inspire us in what we do at Aniar. This attitude of openness is key for moving food in Ireland forward and make our food culture longer lasting”.
The Chef Swap evening at Aniar with Meeran Manzoor will follow the same format as the regular Aniar tasting menus, with 24 courses at €160 per person, optional wine pairing (€85), and juice pairing (€48).
Aniar is located at 53 Dominick St Lower, Galway, H91 XH52. For more information and bookings, see Keep up to date with the latest news by following Aniar on social at @aniargalway and JP McMahon at @mistereatgalway.
