The Malting Tower, Grand Canal Quay, Clanwilliam Terrace, Dublin 2
The food: Italian, Irish
Well-executed, carefully sourced Italian food from Ross Lewis (chef and owner of Michelin-starred Chapter One) and his friend, chef Luciano Tona, whose restauarant in Italy also held a Michelin star for a decade. This is Italian with an Irish twist - salumi is made with gubeen, tagliatelle with Irish beef wagu, Quattro Formaggi pizza with Irish caciocavallo cheese. An interesting cocktail list makes for a perfect after work aperitivo.
