A new food market that takes its inspiration from New York City has opened in Dublin’s Temple Bar.
Dollard & Co is described as a food hall, market and grill and serves a variety of products including coffee, fine wines, cheese, lobster, falafel, chicken, sushi, ice cream, chocolate and much more.
It could become Ireland’s answer to the Dean & DeLuca stores in New York.
Dollard & Co is situated in the ground floor of the old Dollard Paintworks near Grafton Bridge. Inside the 10,000sq ft space are several quality outlets.
There is an open plan grill at the centre of the floor, with chefs serving breakfast, lunch and dinner as you watch. This area can seat up to 40 people and includes table service.
Surrounding the grill is a counter deli that seats up to 80 people, a Cheese and Charcuterie Counter, a bakery, butchery and fish counters, and pasta and pizza counters.
The pastas are freshly made in-house, as is the oven baked dough, and the dishes come with a selection of sauces to choose from.
The bakery provides a range of artisanal breads, such as croissants, golden breads, bagels, sourdough and baguettes.
In the grocery section, there is locally sourced fruit and veg, as well as produce from Rungi’s market in Paris.
There are also racks of wine, prosecco and craft beer from around the world.
The Cheese and Charcuterie Counter offers cured meats, marinated olives and an extensive selection of cheese.
