This laid-back but elegant brasserie in tiny Naas, about 22km (13 1/2 miles) northeast of Kildare, is a real find. The 1880s building was originally a railway shed, hence the subtle hints of the industrial in the dining room, such as exposed stone walls and “slabs of slate” serving plates. The fixed-price two- and three-course menus focus on classic Irish and European flavors. You might start with some hot fish cakes, before tucking into a plate of chicken supreme with prosciutto ham, mozzarella, and sundried tomatoes, or hake with a chive and lemon butter sauce. Early-bird menus (€22 for two courses, or €26 for three) are served until 6:30pm nightly.
