This cheery and informal spot, a 3-minute walk from the General Post Office on O’Connell Street, is strong on delicious Irish cuisine with global influences and a healthy twist. The bright, airy dining room is lined with modern art. Specials may include seabass with pesto and Parmesan mashed potato, or pheasant with a stuffing of chestnuts and squash. The early-bird menu (two courses €21; 5–7:15pm) is a particularly good deal and popular with pre-theater diners attending the Abbey Theatre just around the corner.
