On a cold blustery February evening I found myself with no dinner plans after been to the cinema. It was a little after 8pm and I had crossed over the river Liffey to the foodie side of the city, where you have an obscene amount of places to eat in.
I haven’t eaten in Pichet in a few years. After a few medical scares and been diagnosed as been lactose and dairy intolerant it was always difficult to dine out. I started to advise restaurants days in advance of going so the kitchen could prepare. But last night with no reservations I decided to take a chance and pop into Pichet. Im glad I did.
We were greeted and it wasn’t a problem that we didn’t have a reservation. We were seated at a nice cosy window table with a great view of the kitchen.
Wine ordered and bread dropped to the table, by a friendly Italian waiter. I explained my requirements and there was no problem at all.
Crab to start. Served with clams potato and tomato. A nice delicate dish. Lots of crab and served with sourdough bread on the side. Perfect.
Followed by salmon, charred broccoli with smoked almonds. The broccoli was simply delicious, cooked perfectly. A fabulous crunch. The salmon was perfect, nice portion and a lovely pink color.
Pichet do a great lunch and early evening menu 1 course €15 2 courses €20 3 courses €25
Thanks to Stephen and his team for a lovely evening. Looking forward to going back.
