What about some kind of a brass sculpture
A bit more detail would help. Swanky or no? Are they into food or just roasters who’d enjoy a carvery?
Otherwise, just listen to @Fagan_ODowd
A voucher for a carvery
Not stuck up but not roasters either. Just lovely, lovely people who’d enjoy a nice meal. Doesn’t have to be a posh place but don’t want to send them somewhere below par either.
Is it your girlfriends work pals again?
Dax it is so.
No, we go out with them as a foursie.
Did you ever give us a review of 777?
Think I posted up a picture of the donut I bought in the place across the road afterwards. 777 didn’t impress me much.
Etto on Merrion Row is lovely. Informal but top notch Italian grub (not fucking pasta or pizza, mind)
One Pico is good, but I prefer it for lunch.
Greenhouse as Fagan said is very very good.
Restaurant41 in Residence on Stephens Green is very nice for a meal as well. They have use of the ‘club’ after for drinks if they want (to be wanky)
Forrest Green would be ok too, or their new place Forrest & Marcy, but that’s more small sharing plates. Trendy though if you want to show off your knowledge of hip Dublin
Bastible on the SCR is supposed to be really lovely too but I can’t recommend as I’ve not been there yet
All in I’d go for Greenhouse (swanky-ish) or Etto for great, informal food
Pearl Brasserie is always nice and not too posh.
I would second @Fagan_ODowd’s Greenhouse recommendation too. Reassuringly expensive but not wanky.
I recommended this place the other day when he was looking for lunch tip. It’s very good
It’s the thought that counts
He’s getting them a voucher TOWARDS a dinner
Or a bottle of reasonably priced wine to have with the dinner.
Two glasses at least
