Under increasingly stressful circumstances, the Irish food industry has worked hard  in 2020 to adapt to various levels of COVID-19 restrictions. Bringing their venues outdoors, investing in heaters and hot water bottles, moving their businesses online and making their menus available for collection - these business owners have been exceptionally innovative. 

To ring in the new year, some restaurants are creating take-home boxes filled with delicious platters, mouthwatering ingredients, and ready-made cocktails*. 

To help you plan your new year's eve night in, Fifi, an Irish food blogger, has constructed a list of Dublin-based restaurants that are offering NYE to-go boxes. We have listed a few below, but you can find the rest on her Instagram.

In 2006, restaurant owner John Farrell sold his stock in Dublin's Il Primo in order to gather funds to kickstart his Ranelagh restaurant, Dillinger's. From there, he launched a number of casual eateries including The Butcher's Grill, Italian-themed Super Miss Sue, and Mexican restaurant 777.

The trendy George Street spot is known for its tangy margaritas, crispy tostadas, and electric atmosphere. Unfortunately, we can't guarantee the atmosphere, but with #777atHOME you can pick up a dinner kit and ready-made cocktails to be served up in your kitchen.
