Richard Corrigan grew up on a farm in County Meath, Ireland, before taking off to cook in London, where he picked up a Michelin star at the acclaimed Lindsay House in Soho. In 2008, he opened his first spot in Dublin, this excellent spin-off of his Bentley’s Seafood Bar & Grill in London.
We loved: Fish soup; organic chicken-and-foie gras ravioli with lovage and bacon.

Chef-owner Oliver Dunne, the Gordon Ramsay protégé who opened Dublin’s Mint, cooks in a classic, assured style that has won him a Michelin star at this restaurant in the nearby seaside town of Malahide. Bon Appétit only offers tasting menus, but the basement Café Bon offers more choice—and more affordable dishes.
