The last time I visited Frank’s on Camden Street, I didn’t have a great experience. It was still basking in the glory of an over-hyped opening, which seemed to have gone to the restaurant’s head. Stools at the central island were at a premium, and the service was so cool, it verged on frosty. It was too much of an effort for anyone to describe the dishes as they were plonked down in front of us, and by the time we made our escape, neither my daughter nor I had any wish to return.

Two-and-a-half years on and things are very different. (Although there’s still no bread.)
