The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | EATING OUT -

Barely a year old, Plat­form has al­ready won the Best Pizza in Ire­land ti­tle in this news­pa­per. Own­ers Conor and Ni­cola Dug­gan wanted to cre­ate a fam­ily-friendly pizza place, that wouldn’t scare away the cool 20some­things. The huge menu of­fers flat­breads, sal­ads, wings – and of course piz­zas, which are thin crusted and come with some in­ter­est­ing top­ping com­bos, such as their pancetta, goats cheese, maple syrup and wal­nut pizza. Ev­ery­thing on the menu is avail­able gluten-free, and the Nar­nia-in­spired bath­rooms (you reach them by walk­ing through an an­tique wardrobe) are a big hit with kids big and small.

ARD BIA AT NIMMOS

Span­ish Arch, Long Walk, Gal­way, 091-561114, ard­bia.com ¤¤ For­ever get­ting rave reviews, and with good rea­son, Ard Bia at Nimmo’s is a gem of a place. The dé­cor, the menus, the crock­ery, the food - ev­ery­thing is so pretty and invit­ing you’d be tempted to get a job there just so you can come back ev­ery day. Mak­ing the best of lo­cal in­gre­di­ents with a dash of the Mid­dle East in its del­i­cate flavours, the sil­ver hake with fen­nel and sam­phire or sa­vory baklava with beet­root, feta and pis­ta­chios are din­ners to die
