There have been a significant amount of comings and goings in the food world this week.

We’ve said temporary goodbyes as some of our favourite spots begin the search for new homes, we’ve seen a BMW drive through a shop front, we’ve even seen the launch of a hipster chipper on Dublin’s south side. It’s been a big one, kids.
