Set in a former rag trade building in Dublin’s city centre, Drury Buildings is an industrial-chic all-day dining spot, suitably located in the capital’s creative quarter. Dinners to celebrate birthdays or work achievements can be enjoyed amid Drury Buildings’ rustic-chic interiors and artistic walls, while antique furnishings sourced from New York provide a stylish backdrop to birthday dinners or corporate soirées.
There’s no need to get lost in the maze of the restaurant as the second-floor private dining room has its own separate entrance and bar facilities. The room’s interiors are typified by wooden floors, teal walls and distressed plaster.
Drury Buildings’ food combines Warren Massey’s culinary expertise with locally sourced Irish produce and Italian influences. Starters are designed for sharing - dig into a mozzarella and heirloom tomato salad with basil and olive oil or a platter of Irish-Italian artisan salami. Mains include a fish, vegetarian and meat option, allowing guests to pick from an indulgent 10oz rib-eye steak with watercress and burro di chianti or a veggie alternative of radicchio, courgette, gorgonzola risotto with candied walnuts and a wild berry syrup. Desserts, again, are meant for sharing, covering the traditional Jameson Cold Brew tiramisu and a more contemporary lemon polenta cake with lemon cream and raspberry gelato.
