One thing Bear is known for is meat. The collaboration between Jamie Heaslip and JoBurger has been open a couple of years now, and is famous for its unusual cuts of steak and mouthwatering sides.

However, changing the face of Dublin’s steakhouses is not enough for these guys — they want in on the weekend brunch crowd too. And typically, they’re doing it in style.

The steak is on the menu of course, but there’s also a heap of other delicious stuff on offer — from gammon steak to sausages to dippy eggs and black pudding potato croquettes. Bloody Marys and prosecco are perfect accompaniments, and they also serve salads for those who aren’t in the mood for a big feed. The weekend menu is available at the weekend (duh) from 12 noon.

Price range: Ranges from a fiver to €20 (for a rump steak)

Type of cuisine: Brunchy, breakfasty vibes with a twist

The vibe: It’s pretty hip, but not in a bad way — there are jam jar glasses though. Tables are for sharing by the way.
