13-17 Dawson Street, Dublin 2
The food: Brasserie
The infamous Ivy's first foray into the Irish market, adding to their 30 locations already in the UK (with more to come). Brasserie style dining with an extensive all day menu. Jamie Belton, formerly of the Dylan McGrath group (and Fair City) is general manager, with Nick Lentini, the chef who launched Jamie Oliver's first Irish restaurant in Dundrum, in charge of the kitchen. Expect to see the glam brigade out in force and a lot of selfies being taken.
