I finally went to dublin's crossing. It's beautiful inside. The nicest place in cloverdale. Very odd layout though. You'll know what I mnea when you go there.
A friend and I went for lunch.
The menu had lots to choose from. Definately upscale pub food. I ordered the chicken pannini. It had mango chutney, spinach, mayo, the bread was a cheese garlic bread. There is a huge amount of chicken in it. When it first arrived my first thought was "this is a puny sandwich, but it was more than filling, and very delicious. One odd point though: the bottom bun was toasted and warm, but the top was cold. I figure it was made this way as not to burn the cheese that is baked on top.
Although it wasn't busy at all it took about 20 minutes for our food after we ordered. Which seemed like a very long time for lunch. Perhaps there was only one cook? It was a monday so I'm not too upset.
Slow Kitchen aside, our server was very good, frequent checks to make sure everything was fine.
I tried going there on saturday night but it was too busy with a line out the door, complete with velvet rope and bouncer. So I asked the waitress at lunch what the deal was, she said: On friday and saturday nights, don't bother coming after 8:00 its too busy, come around 5:00 on weekends. They don't take reservations at all on weekends, only between monday- thursday. Take this into account when planning a party.
