Super Miss Sue has serious style. Think brass and leather fixtures and fittings, prosecco on tap, a fabulously kitsch (and unisex) bathroom, and giant porthole windows from which you can watch the world meander by as you sip on an Aperol Spritz.
The emphasis at this Drury Street seafood bar is on casual, but quality, dining; to reinforce that, the restaurant has just been revamped, with a new look dining counter replacing the previous seating area.
And to compliment the new look, there’s a new menu, offering a mix of Italian dishes alongside Super Miss Sue’s seafood stalwarts. You can pop in for a cocktail and an oyster at the bar – they sell them singly from €2 – or chow down on something more substantial: current offerings include tuna ceviche, brown crab velouté and a twist on the croque monsieur, which comes with smoked kipper, skinny fries, pickles and mustard mayo.
The ‘Piatti Del Giorno’ daily lunch specials are good value at a tenner a pop: choose from three daily changing options, like ray wing with brown shrimp, grilled mackerel with caramelised endive or guinea fowl with roast cauliflower (and add a glass of house wine for a €5).
Pop in for lunch from 12pm to 3.30pm Monday – Friday, and brunch Saturday and Sunday from 11– 3.30pm. (As a side note, WHY have I not been here for brunch yet? The menu looks all kinds of amazing.) And here’s a tip for you: the restaurant regularly gives meals away on their social media channels so why not give them a follow and a like - and take me with you if you win!
