I went for the à la carte menu. Platform 61 is, rather unusually for Dublin, downstairs - though in perfect location. The cons - it is really dark there (though this might suit those looking for, i.e, a date - as well as for a conversation about the problem of induction); the pros - if a restaurant visit is supposed to isolate yee from this mortal coil, then it certainly does! It is much smaller than expected - but I like small places with pretty faces. What's their food like? As a starter, I ordered Tuna (10 euro). This came in a fashion of nouvelle cuisine (very small), and I've to admit that I was a bit apprehensive that the main course will be of the same dwarfish size (it was not). Having said that, the tuna toast was the work of art. Simultaneously I had baguettes (maybe not of the same quality as in the famous "Avenue", where they would have baked them themselves - maybe I'm wrong, but I sensed that they use frozen dough; having said that, you would have often left "Avenue" hungry - not the Platform 61 after steak). Their pesto was really good (one of the biggest nightmares of pestos is that most of them are criminally oversalted - this one was not)! All in all, I would give them 4* for starters (minus 1 because the tuna toast was a bit overpriced as for the size - but then again, I can only imagine the amount of work involved). I intended to go for Le Ferme Petit Paul, but they recommended another wine - Croatian Vine Laguna Festigia Castello. I have never drunk a Croatian wine before, but I think I will in the future - with its rich, oaky taste and chewy tannins, it easily beats most French wines for that price because it's more balanced (the French don't combine Merlot and Syrah varieties), My main encounter of the evening was steak (I ordered it well-done). - this was proper food (I forgave them lack of peppersauce). Salad was scrumptious, and - as Messr Trump/Sanders would say - 'uge. Waiters are professional but not overbearing. Good shtuff. Grzegorz K.
