It is hard to admit that some of us forget that we live on an island. “Hello, my name is Claudia and I’ve forgotten I live on an island!” Okay, a bit dramatic, no? Anyway, I was reminded of our location smack in the middle of salty water while brunching with a friend not too long ago at a spot not even I knew existed…
The popular chain Marks & Spencer (M&S for short) have a pretty big front on Grafton Street; what many new to the city ignore is that M&S has a fresh and comfortable restaurant on their top level with an open terrace and all! Of course, when my gal pal suggested we meet there for brunch on a very sunny morning, my reaction was to declare her insane. I now stand corrected. The food was of sound quality, the service fast and friendly, the prices even friendlier and the ambience just exquisite; this is probably because we sat outside while basking in the glorious sun.
So how did this come to remind me I live in an island nation? There were seagulls and there were plenty. No worries, all the patrons are very well protected by giant parasols that let in the light but not the seagull “presents”. Come here any day when the sun is shining to taunt some birds with your coveted island terrace spot while sipping on some chilled white wine.
