Massimo bar in Galway’s Westend have created a new casual menu in time for the summer in collaboration with Galway based catering and events company, The Works.
The new menu brings the best of the vibrant, laid back atmosphere of Galway’s Westend, keeping up with the goal at Massimo of providing high quality, casual dining for locals and tourists alike.
Customers can enjoy exciting new traditional style dishes done with the best ingredients a modern foodie could ask for like the Massimo Beef Burger served on a brioche bun with chipotle mayo,
maple bacon, Irish Cheddar & fries.
Or sink your teeth into a 10 oz Ribeye Steak with tobacco onions, parsnip cream & bearnaise sauce or Tempura Battered Hake with tartare sauce, minted peas and fries.
Enjoy all of that while catching up with friends over a cold beer during the hot summer days or keep up with the latest sport on one of eight large screen tvs around the bar.
Malachy Duggan from Massimo said that everyone was really excited about the new collaboration and the fun they’ve had in the act of creation.
“It’s always great when you get to work alongside people who are as passionate about food and customer service as we are.”
“Throw a bit of craic into the mix and it’s the perfect combination in my opinion,” he added.
The development of the new menu has been a collaborative project by both the teams at Massimo and The Works and includes a great variety of full meals and finger food.
Other dishes which the teams have introduced to the menu that are sure to be a popular choice are a variety of pizzas like ‘The Pepperoni’ topped with spicy pepperoni, rocket, mozzarella and chilli, ‘The Guanciale’ topped with cured pork cheek, mozzarella, tomato, egg and artichoke, as well as ‘The Works’ topped with mushrooms, bacon, mozzarella, garlic, marscapone and tomato.
“Some of the late night dancers may be unaware that as well as a great night out, we also serve some seriously tasty food which is why we want to make a bit of noise about this new partnership,” Malachy Duggan added.
“We’re delighted to have The Works on board, serving this great new menu in our welcoming and relaxed environment and look forward to hearing what our customers think.”
For people looking to grab a bite before the party starts they the small plates such as the Karaage Chicken with sriracha mayo and house pickles, Miso Glazed Braised Pork Belly with steamed bao, kimchi and pickles.
Or the Moroccan Flat Bread with avocado hummus, roast beets, pomegranate, organic leaves & herb oil flat bread is also bound to be an excellent choice to satisfy your cravings before hitting the dance floor.
Those with a sweet tooth will also find they are catered to as the new menu includes a tasty line-up of desserts in the form of ‘Milk & Cookies’, Orange Churros and Lemon Financier.
Open seven days a week, the new menu is available from 5pm to 10pm, Monday to Friday, as well as throughout the weekend from 12pm to 10pm with a focus on casual dining.
Over the years, Massimo have become synonymous with Galway natives for their stylish pub and beer garden, carefully curated drinks list and legendary nightlife so it’s no surprise that come 9pm, the disco dining begins, when the tunes start to turn up and the drinks really begin to flow.
