I'm a big fan of proselytising: food as education, food as history, food as culture. You'll get all that at Fade Street Social, the menu of which provides a bit of culinary history. But I've read enough spin to know that the written word is not always as tasty as the real thing.

I pitched up for lunch on a Friday in January to find that Dylan McGrath's new venture was positively zinging with atmosphere.
