Dine in Dublin has come round again. Now run twice a year and with a larger number of restaurants involved it seems that it is becoming a successful venture. Dublin has seen restaurateurs bringing good value early bird menus to their discerning public and as a result we are now looking for something extra from such promotions as the Dine in Dublin week.
Last time I wrote about this promotional week I suggested that booking for restaurants that were usually out of your price bracket was maybe a good way to go. There are also new restaurants that have opened and this may be a good opportunity to visit one of these.
Damson Diner, recently opened on South William Street are doing a €10 lunch (12-3) of Pork Ban Mi or Fennel Bhaji Wrap with a sorbet to follow. I'm a fan of the Diner and can recommend their food and the funky design of the restaurant.
Fade Street Social, another recently opened restaurant, is on..you guessed it...Fade Street. It has a gastro bar and a restaurant. Diners in groups of 2 booking the Dine in Dublin early bird will be given a €20 voucher for Rustic Stone or Brasserie Sixty Six. A pretty good deal. Their early bird at €25 can be seen here http://www.fadestreetsocial.com/public/images/fade-street-early-evening-menu.pdf .
L'Gueleton also on Fade Street is a French restaurant and this lovely three course menu for €30 from 6pm would tempt anyone.
Another restaurant I'm a fan of is Saba on Clarendon Street. This Thai restaurant has four course menu (one being tea/coffee) for €30. Appetisers followed by noodles/wok dish/curry or Saba dishes which include some lovely fish dishes and a desert. The tempura vegetable appetiser with mustard and lime mayonnaise are delicious and for a bit extra their cocktails are well worth trying!
