The Little Kitchen, Dublin 4
The Little Kitchen is the younger sibling of the popular Vintage Kitchen on Poolbeg Street, set up by Chef Sean Drugan and Stephen O’Driscoll.
Located in the middle of the charming swathe of shops and eateries on the triangle of Upper Leeson Street, it has become a local culinary hotspot, joining renowned neighbours Farm Restaurant and Forest Avenue.
They provide the ideal trifecta of eating out: food of substance based on great local ingredients, a dining room that is relaxed and informal and service that matches the quality of the food. They also have a bring your own wine policy so diners can enjoy their own tipples with their meals, all corkage free if you order two courses.
Their menus are simplistic to allow the cooking to shine through so brunch is a contained affair. Classics like French Toast and the Full Irish sit alongside Vegetarian Flat breads, Slow Roasted Pork Belly and a Gratin of Donegal Smoked Haddock.

“Like its big sister, The Little Kitchen premises are tight-on-space with the kitchen located at the end of a small, narrow dining room which can cater for approximately 25 -30 diners. However this incarnation is decorated in a crisper style which, amazingly, makes it feel more spacious than its sibling.”
