Keeping it in the family, Dillinger’s first foray into the Supper Club Land is Mexican 777-themed and takes place on Thursday, 4 May from 19:30 – 23:30.
Tickets for the Dillinger’s Supper Club are sixty euros and include a family-style 777 Mexican food with Mezcal Spritz/aperitivo on arrival. All the food will be prepared by the head chef of 777, Putu. There will also be two euros off all cocktails for the evening. You can grab tickets here.
Dillinger’s Supper Club, unlike a standard reservation, are a beast all their own. Often run on much smaller scales, they offer a sense of intimacy that a meal on a busy night can’t generally match. Usually, with ever-changing menus and a focus on supporting locally produced goods, they definitely appeal to the more adventurous eaters too.
Based on the model of old-time jazz clubs and speakeasies, a supper club offers more than just the evening meal. Most supper clubs also provide cocktails, entertainment and ambience. Usually, at a supper club, you will be sat at a table with other food enthusiasts
Dillinger’s is a neighbourhood restaurant in Ranelagh with a focus on sharing locally sourced food, drinks and hospitality. It serves mostly fresh pasta, seafood, and meats cooked over coal with “proper drinks and music” according to its website.
777 is known for its tacos and margaritas. Having opened in xx it has become what Tom Doorly refers to as “Ireland’s only truly modern Mexican.”
