- a blog about food and value


  1. Is the New York Grind a kind of large self-service place? If so, I was in there one day and walked out as the food looked fairly unappetising. We went to L.C. at o2 as well, but ended up eating in Bar Italia ( as our first choice, the tasty Il Fornaio ( was busy.

  2. concerts in Croke Park are also significant business for the IFSC. Went to U2 concert on the Monday night – stopped at the Vaults pub in Connolly Station/IFSC on the way. Unfortunately, they decided to have a different shorter menu than their normal menu – and a burger was the cheapest main course on the menu at €16.95! I saw the burger on another table and it didn’t look all that special!! We already had a drink at that stage but decided to leave and went to the Harbourmaster instead where the menu was much more reasonably priced and we didn’t feel like we were being ripped off.

  3. NYG seems to be closed now. Shame – it was a good spot for burgers etc. Always seemed to be busy, so I’m surprised that it’s gone.
