Rewind back to March, restaurants are under forced closure and the future is unknown. Many businesses decide to take the only option available to them and set their once busy and bustling social destinations up as new high quality takeaways.

Jules Mak was one of the first to act, starting a drive through pre-paid service to eliminate as much contact and face to face interaction as possible at Mak D6. With Mak usually closing on a Tuesday, Jules saw a chance to experiment and decided to start selling burgers on ‘Test Kitchen Tuesdays’. The MAK burger was a massive hit and I can affirm the hype was real, having been lucky enough to get my hands on the terrific double cheese creations on a couple of occasions. The demand was impossible to keep up with, after all, the Mak D6 kitchen isn’t designed as a burger grill.

Ranelagh’s loss is Rathmines’ gain, as those burgers have found a new home at day v night themed Hush. During the day the team are roasting their own meats and slinging out sandwiches like ‘The Nice Guy’ €7 – Classic Glazed Grilled Ham and Cheese on Sourdough or this week,s Porchetta special which went down a treat with a Potato Bacon Salad €4 or €10.50 with the sandwich. Soup of the day was cream of parsnip & Bradley apple €6 or the same deal when added to any sandwich.

When evening hits – after 5 pm -, it is time for some burgers. Double Cheese, Beer Battered Cod Fillet, Crispy Buttermilk Chicken or a Sweet Potato & Black Bean Burger all sound a treat in a when occupying a brioche bun €9-11. Other nipples are available such a Chilli Nachos €9 or how about topping your burger with Beef Chilli Cheese? €2.50

Talks of a boutique wine bar and a tasting menu are flying strong in the rumour mill so Hush is very much a ‘watch this space’ for the coming weeks and months.
