Dublin Dishes explores our dining experiences throughout the city.
To celebrate our third wedding anniversary yesterday, Steve made dinner reservations at Forest & Marcy in Dublin 4. I had previously interviewed the owners, John and Sandy Wyer, for Eats Abroad, and critics have been raving about this cozy wine bar and kitchen since its opening in 2016.
The food was, in a word, impeccable. Plates are available a la carte or you can go for a five-course chef’s tasting menu; we opted for the latter. It was so much food; we were surprised to receive nearly every item on the a la carte menu.
Funny enough, the starters stole the show for both of us. Maybe it’s because there were so many contrasting and complementing flavors and textures going on in these bite-sized morsels, but these plates were the most memorable for us.
For €49 per person, it’s a great deal. We left stuffed—we definitely felt like we got our money’s worth—and we thoroughly enjoyed every single dish. Highly, highly recommend, and be sure to make reservations. Tasting menus last two hours.
