Grainne O’Keefe ( right with sous chef Barry O’Neill) has taken up her first head chef po­si­tion, at re­cently opened Clan­bras­sil House, at 6 Clan­bras­sil Street Up­per in Dublin 8, The 25- seat restau­rant is owned by Barry FitzGer­ald and Clare­marie Thomas, who opened their first Dublin restau­rant, Bastible, around the cor­ner on South Cir­cu­lar Road, in Novem­ber 2015. “The restau­rant is di­vided into two rooms, one with high ta­bles suit­able for walk- ins look­ing for a re­laxed meal, and the other with reg­u­lar low ta­bles avail­able to book on­line. The style of the restau­rant is quite ca­sual but also warm and homely,” says FitzGer­ald. “The menu, too, is di­vided into two main sec­tions: a list of sim­ple and sea­sonal small plates and also a se­lec­tion of main dishes cooked over a char­coal fire. The open bar­be­cue is the fo­cal point of the kitchen and we are ex­cited to learn a new ap­proach to cook­ing with it.” The cooked- over- char­coal sec­tion of the short menu at Clan­bras­sil House in­cludes lamb chops, burnt onions and gen­tle­man’s rel­ish (¤ 22); Mid­dle­white pig cheek sausage, lentils and mus­tard (¤ 18); Shorthorn pi­canha steak, bone mar­row and chimichurri (¤ 21), and tur­bot shoul­der, smoked hol­landaise and cau­li­flower (¤ 24), as well as a spe­cials board.
