BBQ Favourite to Expand in Dublin; Co. Kildare Welcomes 'Farm to Fork' Restaurant
Pitt Bros BBQ restaurant, located on Dublin's Georges Street, is set to open a new restaurant at an unnamed city centre location resulting in the creation of 20 to 30 new jobs.
The opening, which is set to happen in in the second or third week of November, will have a different menu that comprises a mixture of "old greats and some new additions", reports DublinLive.ie. A spokesperson for Pitt Bros said that when the second restaurant is fully open, Pitt Bros will be employing "just over 70 people".
Pitt Bros is known for its 'Low & Slow' American-style BBQ, serving pork and brisket that has been smoked for up to 14 hours, as well as ribs and chicken.
Meanwhile, the Green Barn Shop & Restaurant (pictured) has opened in Athy's Burtown House and Gardens.
Styled after old Scandinavian barns with a New England twist, the restaurant maintains a farm to fork policy by using seasonal produce from its own organic kitchen garden each morning. The restaurant aims to use ingredients that have been picked only two hours previously when possible. Its artisan food shop sells products such as house-made nettle pestos, kale dips and infused oils.
The Green Barn currently opens from Wednesday to Sunday and on Bank Holiday Monday's.
