WIN DINNER FOR TWO IN ONE OF MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANTS: BISTRO ONE IN FOXROCK
 

Bistro One is celebrating its 25th birthday or, to put it another way, its silver jubilee. To mark the occasion, Bistro One is offering a prize of dinner for two, with bubbles and wine, to visitors to TomDoorley.com.

It was love at first bite for me in Bistro One. I was brought there years ago by an old friend who had kept telling me about a “hidden gem” in Dublin 18. I’m old enough to be wary of such suggestions so I approached with scepticism only be to be instantly seduced.


You can read my account of Bistro One here but suffice it to say that this cosy, elegant restaurant in Foxrock village displays an instinctive feeling for good food, an eclectic but always disciplined cuisine, a sense of proper hospitality and things being done properly.


I’ve been telling people for years about owner Mark Shannon and his Tuscan olive grove (they serve their own extra virgin olive oil here!) and his embodiment of all that is great in the tradition of Dublin restaurants.

All you have to do is to RT one of my tweets about Bistro One before midnight Sunday 15 October 2017 and you’re in with a chance. The winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!
