The Epicurean Foodhall has just been taken down about ten rungs on the ladder of sophistication by the opening of Burdock's chipper, right out at the front on Liffey Street.
They've ruined the tasteful grey shopfront that was there with their nasty green illuminated signage complete with paddywhackery flags.
Doesn't the Foodhall have any control over who takes outlets? I know it must stay in business, but fake traditional chips (different people run Burdock's now, using the name) do not constitute gourmet food.
The northside desperately needs to hold onto sophisticated malls like this. I know the Epicurean has had problems with outlet use since the beginning, but could this be the knockout blow for it?
