The food: US, Irish
Loretta's 2.jpg

US-inspired comfort food from Colorado-born chef Jimmy Wiley, previously in the kitchen at 777. There’s much talk that Loretta’s fried chicken is the best in the city, and the Nashville hot oysters get great reports too. Beautifully refurbished room in a former bank, and a much needed addition to the North side of the city.

"... I had to give Jimmy Wiley's fried 'chook' (€20) a go - and I think he could patent it. I could suddenly see why they love it across the pond."

"I predict this biscuit served with Loretta’s fried chicken and a corn and fennel salad will never leave the menu, or if it does it will have to be given a guard of honour and carried out in a box. It’s a keeper..." 8/10.

"The good citizens of Phibsborough must be delighted at their new addition — would that every neighbourhood had a spot like Loretta’s, long may they thrive." Food 8/10. Value 8/10.
