April continued the fun with really good meals at Pulcinella, the New York Steam Packet, and Tang’s.

Yellow Bench was a mighty impressive place, with lovely, home-cooked Polish dishes, including a fabulous borscht.

I had a very enjoyable visit to Printworks, and I was similarly delighted by the excellent breakfast and ambience at Copper Bird.

A visit to Mark Greenaway’s new premises, on North Castle Street, emphasised that he’s still producing elegant dishes to an exceptional standard.

Woodland Creatures was the busiest post of the month. I was really charmed by the place, which took over from the old Balfour Bar. The place caters very well for a range of tastes and dietary needs, so is definitely worth a visit.

The only major lowlight was our first visit to the Angel’s Share, where the food and service weren’t up to scratch. A revisit in August revealed that they’d steadied the ship, which was good news.
