The Old Street restaurant in Malahide. Photo: Tony Gavin   Old Street: 'The salad starter was truly a perfect summer dish' On an almost balmy summer evening, we make the Dart trip from the city centre to Malahide to visit Old Street, a recent addition to the town's eating options. The journey takes just over half an hour and feels like an adventure, which is silly. I've been meaning to make the trip for months but somehow kept putting it off. Why? Because I know and like Denise McBrien, the general manager, who used to run front of house at Pichet, and feared that I wasn't going to enjoy this suburban restaurant. I thought that it was going to be boring, and that I'd still have to write about it and I wouldn't know what to say. (I know, first world problems.)

Rosé is all the rage If you ever play word association games, when it comes to rosé, your first response is likely to be something like "pink". It is not, I would guess, "Noel Gallagher". So it might surprise you to hear that when the former Oasis star was recently papped off Italy's Amalfi coast, in his hand was a glass of rosé, rather than the more likely suspects of a beer, guitar, or cigarette.

Gerry Daly: Brilliant shades trumpet the arrival of the Peruvian lily The flowers of the Peruvian lily or alstroemeria have appeared a bit early this year but they always welcome in July and August. The flower-heads are carried in magnificent clusters at the top of tall stems of about one metre or so. They are distinctively coloured in brilliant shades of orange, red, flame-pink and yellow. The individual flowers are trumpet-shaped, flaring at the mouth with a speckling of black or brown spots.
