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...

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

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...

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...

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...

The Ramen Kitchen in Stoneybatter is closing, just under a year after it opened on Manor Street last March. The (unsurprisingly) ramen focused restaurant had suffered from mixed reviews over its short lifetime, with Catherine Cleary in the Irish Times calling the gyoza...

Amy Austin, the long-awaited wine bar from John Farrell, finally opens on Drury Street this Thursday, with lots of small plates, a single dessert and 16 wines on tap. It's next door to ill-fated Luna which closed last year, and where tiny café Sasha House Petite used t...

The Stoneybatter food boom continues, with the opening of new pizzeria Stone on Manor Street. It's the first restaurant from owners Cian O'Colmain and Mary O'Mahony, who say they "just love pizza" and saw potential for a Stoneybatter pizzeria. The Dublin 7 neighbourhoo...

We spend a lot of time reporting on the 'new' (the first three letters of 'news') and there's no doubting that you guys love a new opening, but we're often asked about restaurants that have been open a long time that are still kicking ass. The honest answer is there ar...

Our bi-monthly list features the most talked about restaurants in Dublin right now. We recently had to increase it from 20 to 25 and currently we're seeing no reason to bring it back down again. This is where the reviewers are reviewing, the instagrammers are instagram...

Kitchen 85, a new Cantonese restaurant specialising in Chinese roast meats and hot pots, has opened on Marlborough Street. It's the latest venture from the team behind M&L Chinese (known for those stir-fried green beans with dried chillies) and The Vintage Teapot, a du...

Flip, a new vegan and vegetarian burger bar from the owners of Blazing Salads, has opened in George's Street Arcade. Father Joe along with daughters Pamela and Lorraine Fitzmaurice, say their burgers have been so popular at festivals, and they've had so many requests f...

2020 has gone off with a bang in the restaurant industry, with several high profile closures in the first few days, and plenty more rumours about who's next. There were also several closures in December, and between rising council rates, impending VAT bills and the thr...

30 Dec 2019

2019 was the year of great food in Dublin. For the most part it was very easy to think of somewhere to eat, and sidestep the fear of a disappointing experience, or a meal that wasn't worth writing about. Every month seemed to bring a new opening more exciting than the...

30 Dec 2019

It's been a year of endless new openings, nowhere near as many closings as predicted (although the first few months of 2020 could be interesting), and a constant build of excitement about just how good the Dublin dining scene is getting. These were our most read storie...
