AVOCA has opened its thirteenth store in the bustling area of Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. AVOCA Ballsbridge is a 700m space devoted entirely to food, taking visitors on an experiential gastronomic and sensory journey. The new AVOCA Ballsbridge is the ultimate food experience exuding a premium feel, with an extensive offering, boasting a neighbourhood deli-style counter, a coffee bar and a new ‘Hello and Go’ section that promises to deliver on quality, taste and convenience.
The exciting new addition of a pop-up food concept counter will keep the store’s offering fresh, innovative and relevant with the space becoming home to different up-and-coming food concessions every few months. The first to take up residence will be Páng, a creative modernisation of delicious, traditional Vietnamese snacks such as visually stunning rice paper rolls, delicious salad bowls and other fragrant Vietnamese dishes.
Key highlights of this elevated food concept store include a cheese and charcuterie counter, a Parisian-style patisserie filled with decadent, freshly baked cakes resembling works of art, the AVOCA Butcher showcasing the finest meats from the country’s best artisan, organic and free-range meat producers.
Wine lovers can rejoice with the introduction of a state-of-the-art wine dispenser that will take pride of place amongst the wine shelves, allowing patrons to taste a range of samples, or pour their favourite glass of fine wine. Seating is allocated throughout the store allowing visitors to taste and explore as they please.
Speaking about the opening of AVOCA Ballsbridge, Managing Director of AVOCA, Tara O’Neill said: “We’re thrilled to have secured such a prime location in Dublin 4. We wanted to create a space that works for the community. We believe the end result is breathtaking and a food utopia”
The location also welcomes a new table service restaurant, Fodder, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, centered around deliciously simple, quality products cooked to perfection. The inspiration behind the name is grounded in the history and heritage of the building.
In keeping with AVOCA’s well-established dedication and renowned passion for Irish food provenance, the menu will focus on seasonal and Irish ingredients, hand-prepared with care and attention by the team of talented chefs. Fodder is also home to an elegant bar, a first for AVOCA, where guests can enjoy an impressive range of custom-made cocktails, fine wines and craft beers.
