Serving an American-influenced food menu and a mouth-watering selection of cocktails, Dillinger’s is regularly named among the best places in the city for brunch. The menu includes American classics like pancakes and steak ’n’ eggs, along with a wild baby asparagus salad and Shakshouka, a Middle-Eastern breakfast dish of baked eggs in a tomato and chilli sauce. People who don’t like brunch might enjoy their Steak Wednesdays, where patrons can choose their cut of USDA Black Angus beef, sauce and a potato-based side.

Starting as a take-away and catering outfit in 2007, Michie Sushi now has three restaurants in Dublin, including the Ranelagh original. The name for this family-run establishment comes from the Japanese word michie, which means ‘filled with smiles and laughter’, and refers to the joy its owners feel when customers enjoy their award-winning sushi. They have won The Bridgestone Guide‘s badge of merit for the best sushi in Ireland every year since 2011.
