Dublin lunch and dinner tips?
My husband and I are travelling to Dubin for a week in early November. Any suggestions -- walking distance of center city, mid-priced -- for lunch and dinner would be most appreciated. We're from New York City and love to try anything, from hole-in-the-wall to white tablecloth, but are particularly interested in something we can't find at home, including great brew-pubs. Thanks!
There's a good, simple, Indian restaurant not too far from the city centre. It's called Khan's Balti House, and I enjoyed a good curry there a few years ago. A friend of mine who lives in Dublin often eats there and he knows his food.
There are several good mid - priced options in Dublin City Centre at the moment. Check out the following and you won't be disappointed:
Pichet ( www.pichetrestaurant.com
)Winding Stair ( www.winding-stair.com
)The Pig's Ear ( www.thepigsear.com
)La Maison (www.lamaisonrestaurant.ie
)Gruel - no webiste, casual but well prepared food on Dame St.
Hey, Patricko: just checking back in to thank you. We LOVED Pichet...went there for dinner twice in the week we were in Dublin: great staff and fabulous food. The Early Bird is an incredible deal. Also had a very satisfying lunch at Gruel, hearty seafood soup and delicious bread on a rainy day. Almost went to Pig's Ear, which also looked great, as did La Maison. We had a lovely dinner at Dax, which we also loved. The biggest surprise was the great food in Dublin...being NYC folks we honestly didn't expect that!
