Italian dining in a buzzy modern hotel venue

The Blanchardstown branch of the Crowne Plaza empire is a short hop from the district's glitzy shopping centre. Its Forchetta restaurant works a loud and proud contemporary look with bold floral wallpaper and bare dark wood tables, a buzzy, breezy setting that suits the modern Italian menu. The usual suspects from the world of pizza and pasta are present and correct, or you might start with suppli di riso, fried rice balls with crab and mozzarella in lemony salsa verde, and follow with pan-roasted Kerry lamb chump with celeriac purée and pickled beetroot in thyme jus. Puddings are Italian classics, including nutty torta della nonna.
