Two Dublin restaurants- FIRE Steakhouse and Bar on Dawson Street, and SOLE Seafood and Grill on South William Street, have won awards at the “World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2020”.
SOLE Seafood and Grill won “Best Seafood Restaurant in Europe” for the second year in a row
FIRE Steakhouse took the “Global Steakhouse of the Year” title.
At the start of 2020, FIRE Steakhouse underwent a refurbishment. Management spent over one million euro on a fresh fit out, a sleek new look, plush interiors and the rejuvenation of menus and the outdoor terrace. FIRE Steakhouse was due to celebrate this new facelift with a grand unveiling, but with restrictions, plans were hampered.
Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu who currently lives in the adjoining Mansion House, expressed her delight at FIRE’s recent win saying; "Congratulations to Richie Wilson and the team at Fire Steakhouse on winning the award of “Best Global Steakhouse 2020”. Fire is located in the historic Supper Room of the Mansion House and I look forward to toasting the team’s success in person soon.”
The restaurants remain in the dark to whether restaurant service will be permitted when the current lockdown ends on December 1st
Indoor Restaurant dining in Dublin has been completely closed for 27 weeks, with trading restrictions in place for an additional 12 weeks of 2020.
