By day it’s gourmet sandwiches and baked goods; by night classical French fare at this popular BYO neighbourhood spot

Brownes

Peter Bark keeps raising the bar at his popular restaurant on Sandymount Green so that it's gone well beyond being a good daytime café and neighbourhood restaurant in the evening these days. The secret is well and truly out and it attracts growing numbers of diners from beyond the area too - so much so, in fact, that it's grown somewhat of late with the 'new Brownes' opening beside the chipper.


During the day you'll find gourmet sandwiches, (crayfish tails; rare beef, horseradish and rocket) and, by night, simple, classical French-inspired food.


This Dublin restaurants décor is minimal, with good paintings by local artists and simple bentwood chairs, but the chef here cooks up things like a mean moules marinière (starter or main - nice fat mussels in a wine and cream sauce), and great meats including aged sirloin (crusty on the outside and pink within, served with chunky, crispy 'real' chips) and pan-fried rack of lamb, served on a bed of flageolet beans, with tasty, slightly waxy, continental style new potatoes.


Finish with a well-made traditional dessert (crème brulée, crumble) or excellent home-made ice creams and sorbets.


BYO wine - a small corkage charge is levied "unless you offer us a glass of something nice".


Coffee could perhaps be the weak point, so call for the (surprisingly modest) bill and have it at home.

Seats 22; about €32-35 for 3 courses. D 6-10pm. abbreviations
