    Last week, post exams and an afternoon’s drinking, a few of us from my class ended up having our dinner in Fallon and Byrne, while waiting for our slot in the Karoake bar nextdoor.While we were there an American friend took a phone call from his mother who asked him where he was – he replied “just having my dinner in a grocery store”. She sounded very shocked and he reassured her that it was a very nice grocery store!It’s very non-shop like – the metal shelves remind me of the back kitchen or something, but it has some really lovely stuff.Hopefully unlike Fresh in Smithfield, they’ll have the turnover to keep the fruit and veg fresh.

    What was the food like, Auds? I’d be interested to see if their quality control continues through to what they serve. And you’re right about the appearance of F&B – it’s a very non-shop-like shop! Hope your exams went well too.

    I had fishcakes and a carrot/parsnip mash – the mash was fab but fishcakes were a bit potato heavy. It was quite reasonable enough I suppose.Some of the others had fancy sandwiches and they really enjoyed them.
