Seven Of The Hottest New Openings You Need To Check Out In Dublin

Alan Fisher

The boom is back, folks.

New places are opening up everyday here in Dublin and you won’t hear us complaining about that.

We are lucky enough to check them out as they open and we must say, there is an incredibly high standard of new restaurants bursting onto the scene.

With all those choices, where do you head to first? Which makes your foodie bucket list?

Well, we are here to help.

Here are some new openings we think you need to check out:

1. Órale

This is a must for any Mexican food lover.

They serve the most vibrant street food from the Belfrey in Stoneybatter.

Just take a look at these:

2. Virgin Mary

Ireland’s first non-alcoholic bar has arrived.

It may contain no alcohol but, the drinks are top quality and it’s a great place to meet a mate.

3. Franks

This old butchers has turned into a fine dining restaurant on Camden Street and get ready for a bit of a unique experience.

As the restaurant is so small, everyone is sat at the same table.

Definitely worth trying as something new.

4. Kerb

A welcome addition to the little town of Foxrock.

This middle eastern food will rock your world.

Give the crispy coconut shrimp kebab a go, trust me.

5. Three Twenty

It’s time for some ice-cream.

This new ice-cream lab on Drury Street is a spectacle to watch with huge plumes of liquid nitrogen spreading out from behind the counters and into mixing bowls created with Crème Anglaise.

You can choose from a range of flavours including PBJ, chocolate hazelnut, Oreo cookie and salted caramel as well as a cone or cup.

6. Chi Mak

Korean fried chicken…need I say more?

It’s located on Aungier Street and I genuinely think that’s all I need to say.

Let this picture do the talking:

7. Circa

This new fine dining neighbourhood restaurant in Terenure is stunning.

They have a very unique menu but the food is honestly gorgeous.

The cod with broccoli and dill is just wow.
