Will be there in May and have never been. One night only and wondered if there was a mc type restaurant in Dublin at this time?

Thanks.

Closest is probably The Greenhouse (http://www.thegreenh...ant.ie/home.php) and it also happens to be my favourite restaurant in town.

Ok that is who I was looking at very hard. That and Chapter One, but that one just as a nice dinner. What is dress code at Greenhouse like?

Very relaxed. I wouldn't wear a football jersey and runners, but people there will probably be wearing anything from nice jeans to a suit and tie.

Taster menu is essential, BTW.

Yep, I absolutely agree with Simon. My favourite restaurant too.

Also, Lorraine Harmon, the sommelier there is very good, and does wine pairings by the glass. Chapter One also excellent... but if I had just one night, it would be the Greenhouse. Lunch there is exceptional value.
