* Soft launch Friday 2nd February from 6pm - €10 to try what you want*
Since the Lucky Tortoise pop up in Ranelagh came to an end just before Christmas, there's been a dim sum shaped, pocket loving, BYO friendly gap in the south Dublin dining scene. The Lucky Tortoise team are now searching for a permanent space, but the good news is that while we wait, the guys behind it have opened Reuben Hot Press in the same space - Hobart's Café - consisting of NY deli-style hot sandwiches from the grill.
As with Lucky Tortoise this is a pretty cheap night out by Dublin standards, with sandwiches costing €7.95, or you can get a stack of three halves for €11. You can choose between the classic Reuben with salt beef, the Cheesesteak, the Po'Boy or the veggie option with tempeh. Sides are €3.50 and sauces are €1. And it's BYO, in case you needed any more convincing, so expect wine lovers to make this a regular stomping ground like they did with Lucky Tortoise.
Reuben Hot Press is holding a soft launch tonight, Friday 2nd February, where you can pay €10 and try what you want, just give them your feedback. From tomorrow they'll open Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm. They don't take reservations but there are plenty of good places to wait with a drink in hand if you can't get a table straight away. We hear these boys have more ideas up their sleeve for the coming year. We can't wait to see what else is on the cards.
