I now have a list of new restaurants to try the next time I am in Dublin thanks to the December issue of “Food and Wine” magazine which includes an article on Dublin’s new indie food scene by New Yorker writer Lauren Collins. Collins writes that Dublin’s food and drink scene is more fun than it has been in years due to the economic downturn. She gives a shout out to brown bread ice cream at Murphy’s creamery, Oisin Davis’ gin flavored with Phoenix Park elderflowers at Damson Diner and sea buckthorn sorbet with foie gras parfait at the Greenhouse. She also mentions The Fumbally, KC Peaches, 777, Bear steakhouse, Crackbird, Grogan’s, and Clement and Pekoe tea shop. I can’t wait to book my next trip.
Update: Lauren Collin’s list of must-eat restaurants in Dublin is here: www.foodandwine.com/blogs/2013/11/15/dublin-restaurants. You’ll have to pick up the dead tree version of the magazine to read the full article.
