Eat Only Irish @The Green Room, DIT

On May 2nd, a group of 3rd year Culinary students from Dublin Institute of Technology will once again put their money where their mouths are. The continuing theme of the meal is "Eat Only Irish", adhering to the concepts of seasonality, origin and the tenets of the Slow Food Movement "Good, Clean, Fair".

Following an inaugural event in March, the students have taken the lessons learned on board, and promise an even better event in May. An eight course tasting menu is on offer at the Green Room Restaurant, DIT Cathal Brugha Street for a mere €20 per head. It's incredible value, as well as offering a chance to support some passionate and inspired young chefs.

For more information, or to book seats (served at 6pm), please contact Darryl via Twitter (@CaptainSlowFA) or via email You can follow the event via the Twitter hashtag #EatOnlyIrish. A sneak peek at the menu is given below to help whet your appetite.

The DIT Green Room restuarant is run by a team of 9 people....its a bit unfair on the other 8 to say they are being led by Darryl when they all organise and plan the events together

Roisin Fitzpatrick said...

The Green Room is also run by an entire class group (i.e. 3nd/3rd years etc). This makes it sound like one boy is organising and running it solo. The lecturers also play a big part in this. You're making it sound like it was all one persons idea whne in fact the students run this restaurant because it is part of their course and they HAVE to. I agree with Sean above, there is a MANAGMENT team, not just one person, so if youu're going to give credit please be fair and honest and give it to those who deserve it also.
