Wuff

As soon as you walk into Wuff in Stoneybatter, it only takes a quick scan of the room to see that the owner, Ken Byrne, has a background in interior design. The place is so stylishly fitted out, with butter-soft grey leather banquettes, striking Shaker style chairs upholstered in the same tactile leather and seriously slick vintage ?cage? pendant lights ??handmade by up-and-coming Dublin designer duo Trentanove. The series of photographic prints on the wall are from Ken’s pal David Douglas at Ebow. The beautiful looking tables are made from scrubbed scrap wood and the overall effect is funky Brooklyn industrial softened with sink-in comfort. The chef, Anton Clarke, came from Bite, and his cooking skill really shines through on the fish dishes ??warm escabeche of mackerel with rocket and lime pesto; pan-fried cod with basil crushed potatoes and halibut with cauliflower mousseline are all excellent. He serves a mean 10oz dry-aged sirloin too. Desserts come in dinky jam jars and taste as good as they look. And they’ve just launched a new Brunch menu, so we know where we’re off to this weekend!
