VIN­TAGE KITCHEN

7 Pool­beg Street, Dublin 2, 01-6798705, thev­in­tagek­itchen.ie ¤ Yet another tiny restau­rant that it’s nigh-on im­pos­si­ble to get a ta­ble in, but when you do see what the fuss is about. Some of the best value cook­ing around, the lunchtime small and large plates cost just ¤5 and ¤10 but many of the “small” plates are full meals in them­selves. There’ll be no af­ter­noon slump with the spiced seafood chow­der or the risotto of pancetta, pea, chili & pars­ley. At night, the menu comes at ¤25 for two cour­ses, again great value. They have house wine by the glass or you can BYOB, and you can bring your own vinyl to play on their record player. Groovy

ZELDA MAR­TINI, COP­PINGER ROW

We like to think we’re as glam­orously deca­dent and tal­ented as Zelda Fitzger­ald when drink­ing one of th­ese mar­ti­nis (hey, a girl can dream).

The fresh lime juice cuts through the del­i­cate al­mond flavour nicely, stop­ping it from be­ing too cloy­ing – and mak­ing it dan­ger­ously drink­able . . . we’re sure Zelda would ap­prove.

Memet Brad­ford of Cop­pinger Row taught us how to make one.
