Restaurants have reopened and we're high on life, but some people are still understandably cautious about being trapped in an enclosed space with others for an extended period of time. We know that your chances of catching Covid-19 are greatly reduced in outdoor settin...

And they keep on coming. Here's five more openings we think you should know about this week...

Canteen At The Marlin

After starting in Blackrock market to rapturous praise, then moving to Celbridge, Canteen are now back in the capital at The Marlin Hotel near St. Stephen...

27 Jun 2020

Yes you read that right. Activity is a foot in the city once again. Some have been borne from the lockdown, others were already in the planning, and ain't no pandemic gonna stop them from coming to fruition. Consider these the first green shoots since March, and consid...

23 Jun 2020

At times it felt like it would never happen, but as of Monday 29th June restaurants are allowed to reopen, under what feels like daily changing guidelines. The rules still appear to be 2m between tables, or 1m if you can boot them out in 90 minutes (yes that makes as l...

3 Jun 2020

One of the biggest bummers about the current situation has been not being able to celebrate those special occasions in restaurants, with family, with friends and all the beers. We can't fix that (although every few weeks there's another sliver of relief), but in the me...

28 May 2020

It's fair to say that the only thing keeping us sane right now is the weather, and eating all the food (no change there really). So it's the perfect time to combine both with an outdoor picnic (ideally with three other people now that the reins have loosened slightly)....

Only 41% of ATF readers say they will eat out as much as they did before once restaurants are allowed to reopen, with 22% saying they don't know. The results are part of a readers' survey we carried out this week on how people feel about going out to eat again, and wha...

*Updated - 6th May '20*

It's been the strangest few weeks most of us have ever known. We've watched the restaurants we love evaporate, the majority of hospitality staff in the city (and country) let go, and chances are you yourself have been affected whatever industry y...

11 Apr 2020

Allta, Niall Davidson's city centre wine bar and restaurant, barely had four months of trading pre-lockdown, but the buzz was showing no sign of slowing down, so we're sure a lot of people will be very excited to hear that from midday today you can order an 'Allta box'...

8 Apr 2020

You can take the chef out of the kitchen, but you can fully expect them to start a #covidcooking series on Instagram, where you will be notified every 10 minutes that someone else is "going live". You may or may not be into this, but either way we've picked some of the...

10 Mar 2020

Another week, another opening, and they seem to be getting more inventive by the month. Here's what's appeared over the last few weeks...

Kakilang


Dublin has a new place for bubble tea and it's already out the door. Kakilang has opened on Batchelor's Walk serving Taiwan...

10 Mar 2020

Not even the Coronavirus can slow down Dublin openings, and these are three we're particularly looking forward to visiting once the doors are open.

Fasta Pasta

As if getting one pasta bar where every dish is under a tenner wasn't exciting enough, now there's another one...

24 Feb 2020

Of all of the Irish food traditions, Pancake Tuesday is probably our favourite. We don't need an excuse to eat pancakes/crepes/hot cakes, but we do enjoy the opportunity once a year to gorge on them (breakfast, lunch and dinner totally acceptable, as long as dinner is...

21 Feb 2020

We've long lamented the lack of good (freshly-made) tacos in Dublin, so were pretty excited to hear that there's a taco battle taking place at Eatyard's Jam Park in Swords this weekend. Six taco makers from La Cocina Cuevas, Eatery Park, Fuppin Delish, The Taco Tr...
