10 Sunday lunches to go in Dublin

10 Sunday lunches to go in Dublin

Thursday 03 December 2020

There's something so comforting about being wrapped in the warm embrace of a good Sunday lunch. It's the time when grandparents sit around the table with their grandkids, sons and daughters introduce their future spouses, 'aunties' and 'uncles' drop by for a visit, and so on. We can't do all that right now, but we can get some great restaurant takeaway Sunday lunches, to drop off or have delivered to your family. You can even bring Zoom into the equation, and critique the food together! This week it's Dublin, next week we're countrywide.

With a French accent on its great food, Bresson's new food-to-go menu operates from Wednesday to Saturday, 5pm-8.30pm, with lunch on Sunday from 1pm-7.30pm. Starters (€9) include French onion soup; the 1970s retro fave vol-au-vent filled with wild mushrooms, smoked Alsace bacon & roast chicken jus, with crispy pane egg, and more. Mains (€20) include a classic cassoulet de canard with Toulouse sausage; bouillabaisse (€4 supplement); and their Sundays roast is Irish Hereford striploin a la bourguignon (€5 supplement) served with Chantenay carrots, sprouted broccoli, roasties, Yorkshire pud & gravy.

From 12pm-4pm, Wednesday to Sunday, Circa has eclectic a la carte brunch dishes such as porchetta (€12.50), Korean fried chicken (€12), Asian roast beef (€13) or slow-cooked lamb shoulder (€13). From 5pm-9pm, their set menu for two (€80) offers a choice of starters, mains, desserts and a bottle of house wine. Think yellowfin tuna, ginger, lime and samphire; crab, ya pear & seaweed, or burrata to start, followed by duck, rose veal or monkfish as the mains. Click and collect.

When it comes to dining, there's no one more family-orientated than the Italians and, in Sandymount Village, Crudo, part of the Dunne & Crescenzi group, has delicious Italian food and wines to go from Wednesday to Sunday from 2pm until late, with 20pc off restaurant menu prices. Think garlic & 'nduja prawns, cacio e pepe ravioli or meatballs & mash in a spicy tomato and onion ragu. Click and collect, and also Deliveroo.
