Haven’t had a spare second to post anything on this site of late. Been up to me nads building Damson Diner and getting it all ready. And we are finally ready to rock!
Next Monday and Tuesday we’ll be doing some sneak previews of what food and drinks we’ll be serving. If any of you are up for attending, please follow us on Twitter or Facebook for details. We’ll be offering up a discounted meal and a free cocktail upon arrival. It’ll be a nice way for us to get some feedback from everybody and a final moment to show off the outstanding design that Conor has put in place. He has truly done an exceptional job.
We have been blessed with amazing staff who have helped us all tremendously to get open. They will be our first diners and we are serving them tonight. Tomorrow, we’ll be serving our most critical of customers – our mammies. The fear has truly set in.
Asian & American cuisine is what we’ll be all about. Dinner service only until November 13th, then we’ll kickstart our lunch. Then on November 25th, we’ll be rolling out Sunday Brunch. In December, our basement lounge will be up and running for some dancing and special events. So in other words, we’re staggering everything.
Marc, Conor and myself have been working round the clock with all the crews on site to finish the build. Managing a re-fit project of this scale is a biblical pain in the hoop. We’re chomping at the bit just to do what we really love – to serve the grub and gargoyle we’ve been working on these last few weeks and hopefully see some happy faces in the Diner. You genuinely have to be totally insane to do this kind of work for a living. But thankfully there’s never been a shortage of madness on South William Street.
