There’s a guy about Dublin. He’s the man behind so many of the city’s iconic fast-casuals. He’s one of the city’s hospitality scene’s most notable and iconic faces. He’s really a one name diva: Joe.
So much so, that his name is the moniker for his first restaurant, Jo’Burger. Then, we all later got to meet some of his next incarnations – Crackbird, that iconic fried chicken joint, Skinflint (amazingly-topped pizzas before speciality pizza exploded across the city) Bear (incredible value steak cuts and strong cocktails) and now his recent additions to the city’s dining and drinking scene – Hey, Donna and Bar Giuseppe.
This week, we Chew The Fat with Joe Macken. An enfant terrible of Dublin food, some would say. The man who created a beautiful monster of a restaurant group that has changed, transformed and shaken up Dublin dining. The man who created several success stories within the ashes of the recession. You know his restaurants and bars, you might not know him personally just yet
