Unlikely as it seems, given its ramshackle and somewhat anarchic style, but The Fumbally is one of the most significant and important restaurants in Dublin. It is significant, because owners Aisling Rogerson and Luca D’Alfonso do things in a very unconventional way, and have made their lack of convention their strength, their signature. It is important, because the diaspora of talents beginning to disperse from The Fumbally, and starting to create their own food spaces, are a wizard bunch of diverse cooks and restaurateurs who are enriching the food culture. And to think it all began with Rogerson and D’Alfonso planning a felafel shop, and cooking at music festivals. Those felafels are still on the menu, abetted by the daily specials concocted by the collaborative contributions of the five-chef team, and there is no other space like The Fumbally.
