In a city where most chefs are young, Alan O’Reilly is reassuringly mature. He gave Conrad Gallagher his first job when he came back to Ireland, ran the restaurant at Brown Thomas for many years and even had a fling with serious pizza, ahead of its time. In Wildeside he has found his true niche, cooking serious food at keen prices for an appreciative audience deep in south Dublin. It’s small and cosy, functions as a café during the day and has a proper buzz at night.
