I had a little tour around a project that has been a year in the making tonight. It is a building that has been boarded up on a very popular Dublin street and meticulously restored. It feels like an old pub but it is in fact a savage new restaurant opening at the end of the month. There is a serious focus on meat with a new take on Irish cooking including nice "long roasts and slow cooked joints". There is a private booth for eating dinner where "a group of lads could happily enjoy a bottle of whiskey". The sug at the front will fast become the hardest table to book in Dublin for it's people watching potential.
We want to give you the chance for 2 of you to eat one of the first meals out of the kitchen. All you have to do is tell us what Street you think this brilliant new venue is on in the comments. We'll pick the winner tomorrow evening and tell you where this is and the name of the place will be revealed. A couple of clues to help you with the street name...
1.You'd often see GAA jerseys in the area
2.It used to be an off license
3.It is located between a Tesco and a Fresh supermarket.
And The New Restaurant Is....DELAHUNT
It is the brain child of chef Darren Free. He is hoping to start inviting people in within the next 2 weeks. We think this is a great example of a new Irish dining scene and Camden Street is a place that needs great food to go along with the quality night life. We won't review it until the new year when they find their feet but the signs look good. No pressure so!!
And the winner of one of the first meals out of the kitchen is.....you!!!!
