Eamonn's A Dublin Chipper Review

A nod to his native Ireland, this fish-and-chips joint is Chef Cathal Armstrong's most casual outpost in his growing Old Town Alexandria empire—he also runs such other acclaimed spots as Restaurant Eve and Majestic Café. This 20-seat, counter-service, chipper-with-attitude serves up crispy cod and fries with your choice of seven different sauces from classic tartar to curry. Down it with a pint of Guinness or an Irish soda and finish with a piping hot fried Mars bar, a weird-but-wonderful dessert that's the perfect end to a battered meal. When the pirate flag is flying and a blue light glows at an unmarked door, head upstairs to the PX, a 21st-century speakeasy operated by Armstrong and his wife.
