Storyboard, the neighbourhood café in Islandbridge, Dublin 8 are trialling wine nights, starting tonight. The team behind it think there's a gap in the area for casual food and drinks in the evening, and the new menu will consist of small plates like Young Buck cheese croquettes and pork gyoza, with a short wine list.
Chef Mark Butler says the evening menu revolves around his own experience with French and Asian cuisine, and wants to serve people food that they want to eat more of. Other dishes on the menu include Ssamjang spuds with scallion and sriracha mayonnaise, chicken yakitori with teriyaki sauce and crispy chicken skin, and kimchi and mushroom gyoza. Wines have been picked to match with the dishes, and there are eight on the short list.
Storyboard's first wine night starts tonight at 18:30 with last orders for food at 21:00. They're not taking reservations so it's walk in only. Once they get up and running they hope to open from Thursday to Saturday. Keep an eye on their social media for updates.
