Today I was in Smithfield and needed a quick bite to eat, so I popped into a restaurant I only just recently noticed, Third Space. According to their website, it's more than a restaurant: "It is a social business venture to open and run eating and meeting places in the areas of Dublin that lack community hubs. With a simple and great menu and an informal friendly environment, they will have a creative buzz that connects into the varied life of a modern Dublin neighborhood."
All I know is that they had a roasted red pepper and tomato soup that made my heart soar. The space is open and friendly, and they have bookshelves holding some really great books that make you just want to hang out and browse while sipping on some tea. Highly recommended. I'm happy to have a new spot to go to!
