Mackenzies, the latest opening from hospitality group Press Up Entertainment, has opened on Hanover Quay overlooking the Grand Canal, with a menu ranging from sushi to barbecue to pizza - although they're describing the food as "American inspired classics".
Menus are of the "something for everyone" variety (a Press Up favourite), with snacks featuring Italian, Mexican and Japanese dishes, a sushi and sashimi section, steak and fish from a wood-fired grill, pizzas, pastas, burgers, sandwiches and salads - we're dizzy just thinking about it. Desserts look interesting, with an oven-baked chocolate & gingerbread cookie skillet with bourbon vanilla ice-cream, and a honeycake ice-cream sundae, and there's plenty of good stuff on the wine list, including some very high end bottles for those Silicon Docks spenders.
Press Up do a good terrace, and the one at Mackenzie's overlooking the Grand Canal is likely to be jammed come summer, like sister restaurant Angelina's further down the canal. Brunch is available at the weekends, as well as bar dining, and a pre-theatre menu at €29.95 for three courses is being pitched at those heading to a show at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
Mackenzie’s is open daily from 12:00 – 22:00, and from 10:00 at the weekends, with brunch served until 16:00.
