The Green Hen

The Green Hen Review

It can be hard to re-create that classic bistro feel outside of France, but this intimate spot at the heart of busy Dublin has managed to get the mix of bustle and tranquillity just right. A mix of warm brick walls dotted with black-and-white snaps of French film stars from the 1950s and wood paneling with tongue-in-cheek French movie posters keeps the vibe informal. A quick glance at the gilt-framed, mirrored menu reveals that this kitchen is all about rich, evocative French fare—two winners are the poached saddle of rabbit and the roast rump of lamb with boudin noir (blood sausage) and rosti potato with spinach. The rhubarb crème brûlée is a clever Irish take on the Gallic standard. Lunch is great value, and keep an eye out for adventurous plats du jour and lively wine list.
