FINALLY another review of Glovers Alley to pour over. It turns out that Lucinda O'Sullivan was first in the door on opening night, it's just taken three weeks for the Sunday Independent to publish her write-up. If we were the editors that's one we would have wanted a q...

There's been a lot of buzz lately about 3 Leaves in Blackrock Market, which started as a street food stall and has evolved into a makeshift market restaurant. They've built up quite the local following, but word has gotten out and people have started to travel for thei...

Long standing restaurant O'Connells in Donnybrook yesterday announced that the restaurant has been sold to Oliver Dunne's restaurant group, which includes Bon Appetit in Malahide, Cleaver East in the Clarence Hotel and Beef and Lobster on Parliament Street.

From perfect doughnuts to the nachos of dreams, here's what caught our eye this week.

1. All of Meet Me in the Morning's doughnuts

Dublin is in doughnut overload at the moment, but if we wanted one this is where we would go. No sickly toppings or neon pink glaze. These a...

If you're as sick of the cold as we are, you might be interested in celebrating the arrival of Spring with Anglo-Indian chef Arun Kapil, who's hosting a Holi (the Indian festival of colours) dinner at the Radisson Blu Royal on Thursday 1st March. Holi marks the officia...

We reckon Etto were breaking out the bubbles yesterday after a rare 30/30 from Katy McGuinness in the Irish Independent - 10/10 for food, ambience and value. Quite the scoring, but hard to argue with if you’ve eaten there. You can read our review here.

Like us, Katy had...

We want to let you into a little secret today. Subscriber's to Klaw's mailing list have been informed this week that if they want 15% off lunch at The Seafood Café and Klaw and 15% off at any time in Klaw Poké, all they have to do is mention "The Klaw Khronicles" - the...

Getting a table at Bastible can be more difficult than getting through an Irish Winter, so next Monday's one off Ramen night sounds like a great opportunity to see what the chef's are made of. Dave, Bren and Kevin took a trip to Japan and came back with notions about c...

We were wondering who would get their review of Glovers Alley in first. (Secretly we were hoping that several would come on the same weekend so that no one would have a chance to compare notes.) Our money was on Lucinda who loves being first in the door, but Gillian Ne...

We're big fans of Asia Market, the bustling food haven accessed through a dark door on Drury Street, full of sights and sounds that make us want to eat and eat. There are so many things there that we can't seem to find anywhere else - garlic shoots, sushi rice, ferment...

We know you swore off going out for Valentine’s Day years ago. The lukewarm food, the harangued staff, the overpriced set menu with its ‘medley of romantic seafood assiette’. But in case you’re getting the urge to give it another go, these 8 places promise not to bring...

There were a few unhappy reviewers knocking around Dublin this week. Catherine Cleary wasn't overly impressed with her visit to Boeuf, calling it a 'one-trick pony', lacking in 'bullishness', and saying she felt 'un-mooved to return'. (Clearly there was a wager going i...

Restaurateurs and chefs around the country were running to the shops this morning for a copy of The Sunday Times, where John and Sally McKenna have today released their 100 best restaurants of 2018. This year they will publish a new guide, 'Ireland The Best', but until...

* Soft launch Friday 2nd February from 6pm - €10 to try what you want*

Since the Lucky Tortoise pop up in Ranelagh came to an end just before Christmas, there's been a dim sum shaped, pocket loving, BYO friendly gap in the south Dublin dining scene. The Lucky Tortoise t...

A new workshop from "Slow at Work" author Aoife McElwain sounds like a glorious start to a Saturday. Simple Food for Fast Times will demonstrate easy, energising recipes, with the aim of creating more of a connection with food, and encouraging a slow down when it comes...
