Forum Restaurant - Pearse St.'s New Dining Experience

Introducing Forum, a space within Trinity Business School that goes go well beyond traditional catering spaces.

Welcome to Fourm Restaurant Dublin, a place where dining & discussion, creativity & food concepts and the future minds of Ireland meet. Check out the new space at 183-186 Pearse St.

This 220 seat space, open to staff and students of Trinity College Dublin as well as the general public that want to escape a busy Dublin City offers breakfast, lunch and locally sourced barista coffee from 08:00 - 20:00 Monday - Thursday and until 17:00 on Fridays.

Sodexo, catering contractors at Trinity Business School, have brought with them some real culinary talent in the form of Executive Chef David Fountain. David Fountain from Dublin studied at DIT Cathal Brugha St. and has worked in Bang Café, King Sitric Howth & has been the winner of the prestigious Sodexo Chef Of The Year competition on two occasions. "Sustainability is something that's fundamental to me & to Sodexo. It's a totally necessary journey. At Forum we are all about bringing smart & healthy choices to our customers, taking inspiration from home, while also using the international vibrancy that Trinity College has to create a brand new campus dining experience. We've created something we are all very proud of, something we believe fits the needs of the students and staff on Trinity College and a place that will connect people through good food and inspiring surroundings. We can't wait to open the doors. " David Fountain: Executive Chef, Sodexo, Trinity College Dublin

The Sodexo team in Forum - Trinity Business School

Forum is set up for service of breakfast each day which is a self-serve breakfast bar with very competitive prices. We wanted to show you the menu so you can see for yourself. (Below)

For lunch Forum hosts three destination counters all with a separate concept.

On the "Classics" counter customers can choose between a vegetarian and non-vegetarian dish each day with the theme here being home style, honest cooking. For example we see dishes like Panko breaded fillet of hake with lemon mayo, roast crown of turkey with gravy & traditional herb stuffing or carrot & coriander falafel with red cabbage & kale slaw served with beetroot and horseradish sauce.

On whats called the "Street Food" counter, customers get to choose from a weekly rolling concept menu inspired by street food around the world. We've seen concepts such as a Burrito Bar, a street food Burger Bar and even a Build your own Pasta Dish Bar on this counter. With something new each week it brings an element of surprise to the counter and keep people coming back to see what's on offer.

Forum also has a call order deli bar called "Pure" and a breakfast bar with fresh fruits, yogurt, granola and berry coulis which changes to a salad bar during lunch.

183 - 187 Pearse St.

Forum is a part conversion, part new build. The seating areas have been converted from the original Georgian townhouses on Pearse St. each given a different vibe. The seating areas are well connected with power sockets at every turn and offer a perfect place for lunch or breakfast meetings.

We're looking forward to seeing this space being put to good use by the young minds of the future as well as the now spoiled for choice Pearse St. occupants.

Follow Forum on social to keep up to date with on goings.
