A newly opened offshoot of the eponymous oyster bar in London, this Bentley’s marks a return of Irish chef Richard Corrigan to his native turf.

Dublin was once a foodie’s worst nightmare, but the last decade has seen a massive improvement in the city’s communal palate—with cappuccino bars, high-end seasonal restaurants, and ethnic food outlets appearing all over town.

Reservations aren’t accepted at this superb, if slightly self-conscious bistro, which is unmarked by signage of any sort (you’ll find the door beside Hogan’s Pub).

This upmarket yet relaxing steakhouse is the brainchild of Irish-American talk-radio tycoon John M. Shanahan, who followed his dream of building a temple to his favorite food: Irish beef.
