8 Sussex Terrace, Leeson Street Upper, Dublin 4
The food: Modern Irish
Forest Avenue Dublin

Small plates, big flavours, beautiful combinations of the best produce and an energy drawing everything together that’s difficult to manufacture. Wonderful, responsibly produced wines and real hospitality. Big brother to equally great wine bar Forest and Marcy around the corner.

"Forest Avenue may be the result of a modern love story but its guiding principles are deeply rooted. A chef committed to the best produce; a warm welcome to all guests; and an expectation from customers that they will experience an energy in the dining room that manifests itself as more than the sum of its parts."

"Here is the first Irish restaurant, as far as I can see, to successfully mix a polished fine dining experience, a Scandinavian sensibility and a genuine (as opposed to affected) hipster attitude and aesthetic. The result is one of the most exciting arrivals of the decade so far in Dublin." Food 8/10. Value 9/10.

"Forest Avenue is the most exciting new restaurant in Dublin for a long time. It feels ground-breaking without being swaggering or smug."

"I have had John Wyer’s food before.  He is an excellent innovative chef and what you are looking at in his new eatery is very much on the contemporary Nordic vein, with eclectic twists thrown in."
