Many might think that Dublin city is close to reaching it's 'restaurant peak', but we have nothing but good things to say about new businesses, new brunching places and the Vegan food trend that rages on. Variety is the spice of life, as they say...

Here are the four new restaurants we're bumping to the top of our 'To Eat' lists... 

Pi Pizza

Pi Pizza opened on George's Street and they could be a contender for what Team U considers as the best Neapolitan style Dublin has to offer. If you like your pizza  cooked in a traditional wood-burning oven and with charred and blistered crusts, you'll like this pizzeria's vibe.

Stella Diner 

The newest addition to the Press Up family, the Stella Diner is serving up an authentic slice of America in heart of Rathmines Village, complete with free coffee refills and all-day buttermilk pancakes. The fit out is true to the group's form; impeccably done and with no expense spared... whatever time you wake for brunch this weekend, get yourself here, it's open until 10 pm.

For the Veggies and Vegans... 

The Garden of Vegan

Like lots of our fave food spots of late, this restaurant's story started in a humble food truck, but thanks to a fund-raising campaign that ran earlier this year, the healthy food café now has permanent residency in Ranelagh. And the plant-based foodies of Dublin are coming in their droves, we've heard their veggie hot pot brings the heat.

We've been patiently (not so patiently) waiting for our Eatyard faves to select a location for the bricks and mortar set-up for a while now, but that just testifies to Mark and his team's high standards. Dorset St. is officially the place where we'll be getting our plant-based fix for the foreseeable and 'Vish' their version of fish and chips made with wild seaweed and cassava, is what we already know we'll be having.

More to Come.... 

Word on the street is that there's also two more Vegan restaurants are to open in the very near future, including the city's first ever vegan burger bar, Vurgerface and the Electric Vegan, a totally vegan cafe in Dublin 8.
