Amy Austin Arrives on Drury Street
- Tue, 18 Feb 2020
Amy Austin, the wine bar with a difference, opens on Drury Street
Named as an homage to a famous graffitied declaration of love, now famous in Austin, Texas, Amy Austin was conceived and created by John Farrell, the genius mind behind some Dublin favourites including 777, Dillingers and The Butcher’s Grill.
Amy is a wine bar for wine lovers, with good food too. Seating fewer than 30 diners, it’s a modest space but boasts a vibrant décor, a broad range of wines on tap and by the bottle, and an eclectic menu to match.
With 25% off wine every Monday and Tuesday, 2 plate deals every day ‘til 6pm, walk ins welcome, and bookings only for 4 or more, Amy Austin is serious about being relaxed. AND Dogs are welcome.
Amy Austin’s All Day & Night menu was created in a collaboration between Chefs Essa Fakhry of 777 and Matt Raynor, recently returned from London, who now takes over at the pass. There’s a focus on fun and exciting small plates throughout, designed to let the carefully sourced ingredients shine. Split across a charcuterie and cheese selection, cold and hot dishes and a single delicious dessert, Amy will also offer daily and vegan specials. From midday ‘til 6pm, 2 plates are priced at €23 or €28 with dessert.
A selection of charcuterie and cheese, with guest produce, is all served with charred bread, preserves or home preserves priced from €6. A chunk of Hegarty’s Cheddar simply served with thinly sliced white onion is just €5, or Lardo on Toast for €6.50.
Amy Austin is open Monday to Saturday ‘til late and from 2nd March 2020 Amy Austin will open for lunch from midday each day.
