Michael's Mount Merrion
Gaz Smith’s cooking gets people all fired up. Paradise, they say. Sublime. Impeccable. Big-hearted. Anyone hearing this sort of praise might be disappointed, then, to discover that Michael’s is a very ordinary looking room in a strip of shops in suburban Mount Merrion. People, do not be fooled by the cover of the book: the content of Michael’s delivers flavours that can’t be beat. In particular, the seafood Mr Smith cooks, sourced direct from Dublin Bay boats, is worthy of every superlative going: Lambay Island crab salad; monkfish with prawns and mussels; arancini fish cakes; seafood linguini. But don’t overlook the homemade pastas – Gaz’s spag bol will make you sit up with delight. The room is always packed with locals who know the good thing, and service is just as delighting as the cooking.
