Coppinger Row


by IMAGE
27th Nov 2013

For such a narrow strip of Dublin street, Coppinger Row is inhabited by an inordinate amount of hipsters and hotties. It’s probably thanks to the unholy trinity of cooler-than-thou High Street shop All Saints, the Pygmalion bar and, of course, Coppinger Row restaurant. Once again, brothers Marc and Conor Bereen have demonstrated their not inconsiderable skills in creating a restaurant space where the food is as buzzy as the atmosphere. It’s a life not lived until you try the crab and crayfish with basil and lemon here but the meatball open sandwich with parmesan is sensational too. ?Note: the fish specials are always good. CR is a smart choice for either dinner or lunch but they also have an extensive mid-afternoon menu, where a seared tuna Nicoise salad provides the perfect post-shopping hit. Brunch on Sunday is also brilliant. ?COWPINGER_ROW

We love It’s the little extras that make the difference here, like the Gin and Tonic menu (each with bespoke garnishes), and the cool coffee options (check out the blanco y negro ??a shot of dark espresso with a side scoop of vanilla ice cream).

Star staff Super-friendly service and the constant, satisfied hum of customers underscore the entirely enjoyable experience here.

Top table Outside for the best people-watching of your life.

What to drink The wine list and cocktail menu will impress but the stand-out Coppinger Row beverage is the still or sparkling water, only €1 per bottle with unlimited refills and half the money going to charity.

Who to bring The 30-something new parents who want to feel part of the scene again. And it’s buggy friendly.
