The entrance to Chapter One, one of Dublin’s finest restaurants, is far from conspicious. In a low-key location in the basement of the Dublin Writers Museum on Parnell Square, you’ll find some of the best food in the city. Chef Ross Lewis’s sophisticated, locally sourced cuisine is as unpretentious as it is flavorful—with menus that might include lasagne of scallop and Atlantic crab or wood pigeon terrine, as well as more rarefied dishes (like pig’s tail stuffed with bacon and lobster). The tasting menu, with sommelier-picked wines accompanying each course, is worth shelling out for.
