Stuart Archibald, head chef at Horatio Todd’s in Ballyhackamore
With his chef mother passing on her expertise from the get-go, it was a quick and easy route into the trade for Stuart Archibald.
Horatio Todd’s was incredibly busy from the start “because we were the first real proper restaurant for the community,” says Stuart. “Ballyhackamore has exploded but when we first opened here, there was only The Point and Aldens. I’m not blaming the whole of Ballyhackamore on us but because we opened and were so successful, I think that’s where all the growth came from.
“There’s a lot more competition now but you have to deal with that really, and try to evolve and change your menus to keep customers interested.”
With seven chefs in the kitchen, and 12 front-of-house staff, Horatio Todd’s serves modern Irish fare with a few Asian influences thrown in “so people try something different rather than the same old Irish food and mix it up a wee bit.”
