Forest Avenue is another new entrant to this list, having popped up on Sussex Terrace beside the Grand Canal in November 2013. John and Sandy Wyer, who had previously spent time in the kitchens of L'Ecrivain, are the couple behind one of Dublin's most exciting fine dining venues of the past few years. Forest Avenue is pitched as a 'neighbourhood dining room' with an emphasis on modern tasting menus that are more affordable than many of their city centre counterparts. The 5 course tasting menu comes in at 49, with smaller menu options available as the 'Residents Menu' on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The menu changes week to week, but some typical courses include braised pork neck with whole roasted savoy cabbage, carrots and prunes or celeriac baked in pine salt with homemade ricotta and pata negra.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants, Fine Dining Because: Forest Avenue has only been around about a year but has quickly become one of Dublin's fine dining heavyweights.
- Best for Breakfast/Brunch Because: There really isn't another offering in the city like Forest Avenue's brunch and it is a real showstopper.
