Support local : A guide to Dublin's restaurants reopening



Team EnergyBroker

Welcome to the EnergyBroker blog.  We work with some amazing restaurants in Dublin and understand how difficult it has been for them all to have been closed for so long during the global pandemic. For this reason, we wanted to take a moment to shine a light on some of our customers in the hospitality industry in Dublin. We want to encourage our readers to check out some independent establishments and support local businesses all around the country. 


The Mongolian BBQ

Asian Restaurant

Home of the lunch bowl, providing stir fries and great value in the heart of Temple Bar. The Mongolian BBQ is popular with both locals and tourists but has been closed since last year due to the pandemic. They offer a unique and fun experience where you choose your ingredients and then watch the chefs grill it up in front of you. The staff are great and the atmosphere is super relaxed. Make sure to give them your support when they reopen.

Fine Dining

Offering fine dining in Dublin's Georgian quarter, Dax has been impressing diners with modern Irish cuisine since 2004. During the pandemic they ran 'Dax at Home' where you could order from the restaurant to enjoy at home, which saw huge demand and they were regularly sold out. Make sure to book a table for when they reopen indoor dining for that extra special treat you deserve after the year we've all had.
