A fresh, one-stop-shop for everything organic and delicious in Dublin, Fallon & Byrne combines a huge deli with a cozy cellar wine bar and expansive second-floor French brasserie. Located on the top floor of a beautiful old telephone exchange building, the high-ceiling, light-filled dining room is always bustling. The menu covers everything from burgers to loin of rabbit, but the grilled fillet of plaice with brandade potato, butternut squash, and basil beurre blanc
and the sweet-potato polenta cake with Tuscan bean stew and aubergine (eggplant) caviar are typical. Leave room for the lemon-ricotta cheesecake with ginger ice cream. You can pick up a bottle of wine in the wine cellar and enjoy it for a small corkage fee.
