Barry Fitzgerald is fast becoming the Danny Meyer of Dublin 8, with his first Leonard’s Corner outpost – Bastible – now joined by Clanbrassil House, just around the corner, where Grainne O’Keeffe is cooking up a storm. Back at the mothership, Mr Fitzgerald and his crew have stuck to the 3x3x3 formula – 3 starters, 3 mains, 3 puddings – that saw them rocket to instant success when they opened in late 2015. Bastible food is marvellously imaginative – scallops with seaweed potatoes; sea trout with horseradish; duck egg with duck ham; hazelnut cake with Jerusalem artichoke ice cream – so it piques the imagination at first, and then blows up your taste buds. The Bastible 3x3x3 formula could also be expressed as: Creativity-Discipline-Artfulness. It’s a special, and potent, culinary magic.
