18 August 2017
Strolling along Dublin’s quays this week, ShelfLife couldn’t help but notice the elegantly uplit building that is that is the capital’s stylish new food hall, Dollard & Co.
The food hall which has been likened to Eataly or Dean & DeLuca in New York launched yesterday on 17 August.
With 10,000 sq ft of floorspace, the light-filled premises has floor to ceiling windows that face both Wellington Quay and East Essex Street.
An open plan kitchen takes centre stage within the store, where a team of 30 chefs are stationed. Chef Ryan Bell who transferred from Angelina’s on Percy Place heads up the team who offer both an all-day deli style menu and more formal table service offering known as ‘The Grill’.
The Irish Times reports the food market aspect of the business includes a large butcher counter with a dry ageing room situated behind it. There is a smaller fish counter and freshly baked in-house bakery offer as well as a large selection of ready meals.
The outlet also has a strong fresh fruit and veg department, both Irish-grown and with daily deliveries from the Rungis wholesale market outside Paris.
Another notable feature is a late-night pizza hatch, which fronts out onto Wellington Quay – staying open until as late as the mooted time of 4.30 am with a choice of four or five pizzas sold by the slice.
Dollard & Co and the restaurant situated above it, Roberta’s, are owned by Press Up Entertainment Group, Paddy McKillen Jnr and Matt Ryan’s hospitality giant. Established a decade ago, it boasts an impressive portfolio that includes the Dean Hotel, Sophie’s at the Dean, Angelina’s, WowBurger, Peruke & Periwig and the Liquor Rooms.
