It’s an exciting time for new restaurants in Dublin, with new offerings popping up in the capital frequently
Brand new from the people behind Coppinger Row, Charlotte Quay has just opened its doors on, eh, Dublin’s Charlotte Quay. Featuring what Coppinger Row does best with a Middle Eastern twist and a fab water’s edge location, it’s one to check out.
Fresh to gay heart of the city is Beef & Lobster, on Parliament Street. Created by Oliver Dunne (Cleaver East, Bon Appetit) the menu is minimalist with four dishes only, and it does exactly what it says on the tin serving Irish beef and lobster.
Several restaurants have come and gone from this busy corner location, Florentino being the last, so let’s hope this one fares better.
Also new(ish) on Parliament Street we have Aperitivo, which is already making its name for yummy vegan fare.
Their vegan sandwiches, pizza and desserts are everything a total non-animal product eating person could wish for, and all their breads and cakes are made fresh in the store every day.
Check out their €10 pizza and beer deal.
From new restaurants in Dublin to vintage as Japanese stalwart Yamamori gears up to celebrate 21 years serving the best sushi, noodles and more in Dublin city.

Full details to be announced very soon via the restaurant’s social media pages and the news section on their website, yamamori.ie.
