1. Steak Frites with Pepper Sauce La Réserve Brasserie
It's tough to beat French bistro classics, especially when they can be delivered right to your door. Plan a lovely evening with someone special, light some candles, and remember why some romantic clichés exist.
Start things on a light note with Salade De Chèvre Tiède, move on to luscious mains like Steak Frites, Moules Marinières Basilic, Coq au Vin, or Risotto Au Champignon Sauvage Et Artichaud (for the beloved vegetarian in your life) and go for the blockbuster finish with a cheese plate or chocolate tart, or both.
Where: La Reserve Brasserie
2. Spaghetti al Frutti di Mare, Pinocchio Restaurant
For a taste of Italy, try out the fairytale-named Pinocchio. Here they serve up delicious dishes prepared using only the best locally sourced ingredients, with a small but select menu of everything from antipasti to dolce.
Try the Spaghetti al Frutti di Mare for a tantalising taste of the sea. Garlic, squid, mussels, clams and prawns all get tossed together to produce a truly standout seafood masterpiece. Or if you want to feel like you're holidaying on the Amalfi Coast, spring for a simple Caprese salad paired with a crisp and refreshing Verdicchio.
3. Bangkok Noodles, Diep At Home
Established in 1998, Diep At Home is a tried and trusted name on Dublin's culinary map. Their mission is simple: bring quality, locally sourced Thai style food to everyone's home.
Whenever we crave something hearty and warming we go for the Massaman, with its rich, coconut creamy sauce, thickened up with potato, onion and crispy shallots. But when only noodles, the sofa and box sets will fill the void, get their Bangkok Noodles with their flavourful chilli kick.
