7 Church Street, Skerries, Co. Dublin
The food: Fine Dining, Modern Irish
Ex-Chapter One head chef Cathal Leonard moved home to North County Dublin to open Potager with partner Sarah Ryan, and overnight Skerries had a destination restaurant. Situated in a former bank, they showcase the best of the local area’s meat, fish, fruits and vegetables, and the wine cellar is in the old bank vault. We went, we ate, we were blown away, and recommend getting here for the tasting menu before the accolades start rolling in and prices inevitably go up.
