The French Table is a little gem and it remains resolutely French (the clue is in the name), which is not always easy in Ireland. The chef/proprietor, Thomas Fielon, from Strasbourg, has Hibernicised his surname to Phelan but he doesn’t mess with the bistro classics. They are as Gallic as Gitanes and pastis. Lovely selection from Wines Direct, too.
