The Ivy - Dawson Street, Dublin
The go to place at the moment. I went for brunch 🍽 and booked in advance, I’d say it’s necessary as I’ve heard rumours that dinner is essentially booked up til Christmas. The restaurant looks amazing 💐& they have lovely details using the ivy plant 🍃🍃on napkins & sugar trays etc.
The menu, to my surprise was quite normal for brunch. I decided to choose something I wouldn’t normally see on a menu, which was the crispy duck salad. It was a starter (I could’ve asked for it to be bigger) so I ordered sweet potatoes on the side. The salad was actually so delicious I’d love to try recreate it. It was a very good twist on the usual duck pancakes. The sweet potatoes came as a relatively small portion but was still tasty. The dessert was a blackberry sundae🍨 which was extremely sweet, so much so that even when shared between 3 people there was at least half left. It did taste good though, but I wouldn’t be in a hurry to order it again.
The prices 💶weren’t outrageous for what I was expecting, in general the dishes were probably 2-5euro more than the norm, if even. I would be interested to try dinner there in the future, or even drinks.🍴🍹
