Parlour Games becomes Jackrabbit, pops up in Dublin on 26 November

From the chef behind Paella Guys, a popular Dublin pop-up restaurant is back, under a different name.

The artist restaurant formerly known as Parlour Games returns as Jackrabbit on Saturday 26 November and heads for The 105 Cafe in Clonskeagh. The food truck stays at home for the night with fine dining on the agenda next weekend.

Having dubbed themselves ‘the healthy street food specialists’, Jackrabbit is cheffed by Ian Marconi (formerly Moro, London). Parlour Games ran for two years as a pop-up, kicking off in 2012 doing elaborate 6/7 course meals before winding down.

Now, the fine dining experience returns for one night on the Clonskeah Road in Dublin 14.

The menu for Saturday looks pretty snazzy in fairness with five courses running at €55 including

  • Spiced beetroot soup with honeyed pumpkin and crispy lamb
  • Grilled purple sprouting broccoli, almond sauce, jamon, pickled quail eggs
  • Pan-fried gurnard with kale, labneh, green chilli and pickled red chilli
  • Ox cheeks, oloroso, celeriac mash and truffle oil
  • Orange and chocolate mousse cups, apricot and cream
