Truffle pudding at Hen's Teeth

You’ve probably spotted some sad-looking outdoor dining situations in recent weeks. While many restaurants have put in a huge effort to make like proper Europeans and create an attractive space for people to enjoy, others have merely plonked a couple of folding chairs on the double-yellow lines, without so much as a flimsy garden umbrella to protect their customers from the vagaries of the Irish summer.

Thankfully, Hen’s Teeth on Blackpitts falls firmly into the former category, with a smart new deck installed on the fortuitously wide pavement in front of the building. The tables are well spaced, the colourful chairs cheery and the umbrellas sturdy; it’s properly ventilated, unlike some of the sweaty, largely structures with see-through sides you see. The mainly thirty-something clientele is cool without trying too hard, the playlist good enough to have us seeking it out on Spotify when we get home.
