Harold’s Cross, I hope you welcome me with open arms one day because thanks to Craft, I’m fully obsessed.
A “neighbourhood bistro” (are all restaurants outside of the city calling themselves this recently?), Craft is run by renowned chef Philip Yeung and has a shiny reputation among Dublin’s restaurant scene for serving the best local ingredients, cooking them with flair and – most importantly – whopper flavours.
Awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand status in 2018 for its “modern and creative” dishes with “vibrant colours and fresh, natural flavours”, I’ve high hopes.
Three hours well spent in this suburban haven that already has me planning a return, whether it’s for brunch, lunch or another droolworthy dinner.
The best cooking can often be found outside the city, and Craft is the proof. Go alone, go with a gang, but please – just go.
Craft is located at 208 Harold’s Cross Road, D6.
