Dunne and Crescenzi
Dunne & Crescenzi is the essence, the soul, of the Italian arts of cooking, and eating.
There isn’t a happier dining room in Dublin than Dunne & Crescenzi. Part of the success of the room is the fact that it is the most welcoming gallery in which to witness “the cultural and social art form” that is Italian cuisine, as Eileen Crescenzi writes in her superb book, Festa. You will find gorgeous foods and wines in D&C, of course, but it is everything else that the room offers – clamour; camaraderie; comfort; service; soulfulness –that makes it unique. All these evanescent but vital elements are here, and there is no one who can resist the timeless, youthful and head-spinning beauty of this extraordinary culinary culture. When you eat at D&C, as Mrs Crescenzi writes: “It’s a time to come together to share food and thoughts and to make sure everybody is cared for.”
