Owner Conor Hughes has a passion for food and serving his customers with love. So, he couldn’t believe it when Hollywood icon Sarah Jessica Parker arrived with her family at the busy Dublin restaurant.
One of the nicest customers he’s ever served ‒ an unforgettable experience
Dublin is no stranger to celebrity visitors, with the likes of Harry Styles, Matt Damon, and Bill Murray spotted around the city in recent years. Still, it is always a nice surprise when a familiar face pays a visit.
He explained, “She noticed we were super busy, asked if I was short-staffed. She jokingly offered to help in the kitchen, as I was cooking and running food!
“She seemed to know a lot about our business and clearly had done her due diligence.”
Celebrity seal of approval ‒ the family’s dishes of choice
Conor explained that the family, and particularly 19-year-old James, seem to be real foodies. When asked what they ordered, he recalled they had fried chicken for a starter and ramen for the main course.
He said they also ordered “cauli wings and salmon sashimi to share. I sent an extra plate of sashimi as they seemed to love the first one. This gesture was met with amazed delight.
“They really appreciated it. Especially the kids.”
His kind gesture didn’t go unnoticed, as Sarah Jessica Parker even offered to help at the busy Dublin restaurant. Before leaving, she even gave him a hug as the family headed back to their hotel.
