Bang Restaurant

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Bang has always been one of the best rooms in Dublin city centre, a sleek, svelte creator of swish modern Irish food. But it's also always been one of the best rooms at moving with the times, changing the focus of the menus, adapting to suit customer's demands and perferences. Just look, for instance, at their 6-12-6 lunch menus, where all starters and puds are €6, and all mains are €12. You can have Clare Island salmon with peas and lemon curd to start, then rose veal meatballs with spaghetti and pine nut gremolata, then finish with a plate of Milleens cheese with truffle honey and house crackers, and you will feel that you have snapped up the best bargain in the city, as well as one of the tastiest.
This is smart stuff, and you can find the same superb value in the pre-theatre menus, whilst the dinner menu lets the kitchen get a bit more funky, with dishes like Kerry Hill lamb rump with goat's cheese gnudi, or Pat McLoughlin's rib-eye with bearnaise and triple-cooked chips, or tomato risotto with burrata. Mind you, if you feel you have saved money on the food, the wine list will get rid of your dosh with its enticing range of superstar wines, from great estates such as Chateau La nerthe and Roc de Cambes, though again there are also great wines here at good prices. Smart work, and one of the great city rooms.
