A family connection to Phibsborough’s excellent Woodstock café sets the tone for Moloughney’s: it is a smart set-up, a restaurant that manages to cook for everyone yet makes no compromises. So, settle into the pretty room and start with some wild garlic soup, or some of their home-smoked salmon, then some Irish lamb with wild garlic pesto, or Silverhill duck with parsnips, then a lovely carrageen moss panna cotta.
And we can think of nothing nicer than settling in for a dinner menu like this: duck rillette with blood orange compote; honey roast fig with goat’s cheese and pomegranate; coq au vin with potato purée; tarte au citron, especially with a bottle or two of Dungarvan Ale. Very impressive, and heading for the stars.
