Hanover Quay has a new American inspired eatery

Sarah Finnan

There’s a new kid on the block.

Mackenzie’s is the newest addition to Dublin’s Silicon Docks.

Serving up all sorts of American inspired cuisine, it’s the perfect spot to meet up with mates for a catch-up. Especially in the run-up to Christmas when all you seem to say is “let’s grab a coffee!”.

What’s on the menu?

A whole lot actually. Warm-up with one of the starters – big enough to share, which include charred globe artichokes served with ranch dipping sauce, cream cheese and spinach dip served with warm corn tortilla chips and sushi and sashimi plates.

And for the main event, options vary from wood-fired pizzas and cheeseburgers to steak and daily market fish.

My eyes went straight to the dessert section, obviously. Theirs is an impressive selection with an oven-baked chocolate and gingerbread cookie skillet, a honey cake ice-cream sundae and a banana and dulce de leche layer cake.

Everyone knows dessert doesn’t go to your stomach, it goes to your heart.

Found right on the Grand Canal Basin, the upturned rowing boat on the ceiling of the dining room pays tribute to the two connecting bodies of water.

A stone’s throw away from the Bord Gáis, the new joint will offer a pre-theatre menu from Sunday to Thursday.

Mackenzie’s is open from 12pm to 10pm and 10am to 10pm on the weekends. Pop in for lunch and dinner as well as brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
