Sprezzatura shot to renown in 2019 when they opened their small plates, fresh-made pasta bar in Dublin with nothing on the menu costing more than a tenner. The venue has always featured an awe-inspiring list of Irish producers, including Achill Lamb, Kilkenny Rose Veal, Lough Neagh smoked eel, Durrus cheese and Velvet Cloud sheep’s milk yoghurt.
Their sister restaurant Spatched opened in Rathmines this year, selling only sustainably sourced chicken in various permutations.
