Talented Chef Andy McFadden returns to Ireland to open 

Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden


The 2nd of February will see the much-anticipated opening of Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden, a brand-new restaurant located at 128 St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden is the first operated restaurant of well-known Dublin born chef Andy McFadden. A lengthy spell abroad saw Dubliner Andy spend the last seven years both as Head Chef in L’Autre Pied and most recently at sister restaurant Pied á Terre, London. He retained a Michelin Star during his time in both L’Autre Pied and Pied á Terre

Passionate about great food, Andy has worked alongside some of the most renowned chefs in the world, such as Shane Osborn, Sergio Herman, and Ireland’s own Neven Maguire, gaining a wealth of knowledge and honing his creative skills along the way. 

Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden will focus on delivering outstanding food and first-class service in a beautifully designed space. The design of the restaurant is by award-winning London based Project Orange, led by Christopher Ash. The design concept for the new restaurant reimagines Pullman Class dining through a contemporary lens. Fluid lines and luxurious materials unite a sequence of intimate spaces in an elegant whole. Evocative of the Streamline Moderne style of the 1930s whilst confidently of their time, the glamorous yet informal interiors are defined by linings of rich fumed oak and brass, coved plasterwork and Deco-Pastel leathers.

The style of food will reflect Andy’s signature style of French-influenced elegance whilst developing what he describes as a natural, lighter element to the menu. Andy said, “Using Ireland’s most dedicated farmers and food producers, we want to create unique and exciting dishes. Each dish is designed to use techniques that bring out the best of each ingredient. We will be following my core philosophy of making everything in-house.”

The wine list at Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden is designed to complement Andy’s food, with an emphasis on small artisanal, organic and biodynamic producers as well as mature fine wines from around the world. Guests can choose a bottle from the extensive cellar, or treat themselves to a glass of wine paired to each of the selected dishes from the ‘Classic’, ‘Reserve’ or ‘Grand Cru’ selections.

Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden is open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday 6-9.30pm and for lunch Thursday to Saturday 12.30-2.30pm.

Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden is located at 128 St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2, Ireland.
