Chapter One: The Ideal Underground Escape From 2020

31 Aug 2020

Chapter One is one of the real success stories of Dublin's dining scene. Open since 1992, they were awarded a Michelin star in 2007, and have hung onto it easily (from the outside looking in anyway) ever since...

Agave: Taquitos, Pambazos And Homemade Nachos Come To Dublin 2

17 Aug 2020

Dublin has never been the city to find legit Mexican food (something that causes us much dismay), and while there are some success stories (namely 777, El Grito, and more recently pop up food truck La Cocina Cuevas), what's on the market here would make most Mexicans shudder....

Craft: Neighbourhood Dining That's A Steal In Harold's Cross

04 Aug 2020

Craft opened in February 2016, and was immediately touted as the neighbourhood restaurant Harold's Cross had badly needed. Head chef/owner Philip Yeung had previously been head chef at Town Bar & Grill (remember the boom?) and Bang on Merrion Row, and a string of glowing reviews for his first solo opening followed...

Volpe Nera: Barry Sun's Stunner In The Suburbs

20 Jul 2020

As One + Potager: Two Perfect Rooms For The Pandemically-Anxious Diner

06 Jul 2020

As everyone who has reopened is still a bit shell shocked, toying with limited menus and deciding how to navigate the many, many reopening guidelines (some of which make absolutely zero sense), it didn't feel right to do a typical once over, so instead we're telling you about two dining options that are perfect if you're feeling a bit anxious about stepping out into the big, bad world again...

Daddy's: Brunch In A Pub has Never Been This Good

10 Mar 2020

Last December, the team behind Lucky's on Meath Street opened a new multi-purpose venue in a neighbourhood that really needed it - Rialto. The Circular is the pub part, serving craft beer and pizza from Coke Lane with a "beer yard" out the back (yet to be seen), and at the front is Daddy's - the bright, vintage style pink-toned café...

Bastible: A New Reason To Visit The Dublin 8 Favourite

25 Feb 2020

Bastible opened in 2015, the first restaurant from couple Barry Fitzgerald and Claremarie Thomas (who also own Clanbrassil House and Coffee Shop), and after Catherine Cleary called it the best restaurant she'd been to that year, there was something of a stampede, with months of tables booked out in an instant...

Bistro One: A Chef To Watch In Foxrock

11 Feb 2020

Unless you live locally you probably haven't heard of Bistro One in Foxrock. It's one of those under the radar suburban spots - loved by locals but unlikely to have anyone venturing from the other side of the city to eat there...

Little Dumpling: Dublin Gets A Dedicated Dumpling Shop

28 Jan 2020

In December, what had been Fudo Izakaya on Little Mary Street, reopened after a short and unsuccessful stint selling sushi, as dedicated dumpling shop Little Dumpling. Cautious excitement followed...

Sprezzatura: Handmade Pasta With An Irish Accent

14 Jan 2020

The story of a new handmade pasta place coming to Dublin in October, where no plate would cost over €10, and practically all the produce was Irish, was our second most read story of 2019, and we can't say we were surprised...
