Your Shopping Bag is Empty
DINE IN STYLE
Can’t decide where to eat tonight? May we suggest, Edition? Located on Level 2 of our Brown Thomas Dublin store, relax and enjoy your favourite brunch, lunch, afternoon treats or some post-shopping bubbles. Here, founder and lead chef, Domini Kemp tells us more.
We’ve all experienced ruts, periods of time where we feel like we’re just going through the motions, treading water or jogging in one spot. You’re doing the same old things, but it doesn’t seem like you are actually getting anywhere. Things that used to excite you start to feel less interesting. Instead of moving forward toward your goals, you're remaining stagnant. And although ruts are most commonly associated with careers, style and/or dating, a new type of rut has emerged: the restaurant rut.
We all have our favourite places to dine at, whether it’s where we go for special occasions, to meet friends or to experience some quality family time. But if you find yourself at the same restaurant every weekend or ordering the same thing off the menu each time you dine - chances are you may be experiencing some foodie fatigue.
Located on Level 2 of Brown Thomas Dublin (and now also in our new Dundrum store), Edition is the brainchild of sister duo, Peaches and Domini Kemp. Serving up a highly stylised experience where the décor equally matches the exquisite dishes, it’s the perfect place to get you out of that restaurant rut.
“Delicious, fun & beautiful,” is how Domini Kemp, founder and lead chef at Edition would describe the restaurant. “We wanted Edition to reflect a plant-forward approach to delicious comfort food,” she explains. “There’s nothing stuffy or formal, just big flavours that are relevant to how we want to eat today.” But as the recent tablescaping trend has proven, where and how you eat, is just as important as what you eat. “The interiors are a reflection of that – some beautiful statement finishes, soft colours and lots of planting,” describes Domini. “It’s soft, rather than feminine and as to fit within women’s fashion on Level 2.”
Whether you’re dining with little ones, having a catchup with friends, celebrating a special occasion or even partaking in an important business meeting, Edition acts as the perfect backdrop to all scenarios. “It really is a great space and the menu’s appeal is very clear,” adds Domini.
But if you’ve never been or it’s time to rediscover the space, what should you expect? “A really warm welcome and service that’s relaxed, but with attention to detail,” answers Domini. “We understand that some of our customers are on a tight schedule while others want a more leisurely experience. We gauge that and are there to provide something delicious, fun…and a little unexpected!”
And as for the food? “Expect great cooking, some interesting Editions of classic dishes and some really lovely cakes and treats from the bar counter,” says Domini. “Our apple strudel is vegan and delicious! That said, the eggs shakshuka and also the superfood salad are my go-to favourites on the menu.”
Not in the mood for food? No problem. “We have a super non-alcoholic mocktail list and beautiful speciality coffee along with a lovely selection of wines,” says Domini. “Perfect for some post-shopping relaxation!”

SUMMER SIT-DOWN WITH DOMINI KEMP…
Q: Summer is finally here! What are you most excited for?
A: “The sunshine! Which means delicious iced coffees.”
Q: Will you be travelling anywhere special on holiday this year?
A: “Greece is one of my favourite places to go.”
Q: Where is your favourite place to travel to for the cuisine?
A: “London is actually a really great city to dine in: stunning interiors, new concepts and great food.”
Q: Can you share with us a recipe that reminds you of your favourite holiday spot?
A: “I love Greek salad but really love the way this one is a bit more robust with the cumin in it. Red wine vinegar also works instead of the lemon juice.”
- 1 green pepper
- 2 tsp cumin seeds
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- Juice of 2 lemons
- 120ml olive oil
- 120g good black olives (approx 12-15 stoned olives)
- 100g feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 cucumber, sliced
- 1 red onion, very finely sliced
- Bunch mint, roughly chopped
- Punnet cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- Approx 150 g mixed leaves
- If you have a gas hob, stick the green pepper over a gas flame and char the skin. Alternatively, you can rub the skin with a little oil and grill under a hot grill. Either way, remove the skin or be lazy and leave it on. Slice it finely.
- Toast the cumin seeds in a frying pan for a minute or two until you start to get a good roast smell from them. Allow them to cool slightly and then whisk together the cumin, oregano, lemon juice and olive oil. Season well and add a squeeze of honey if the dressing is too sharp.
- Toss the salad leaves with a little dressing and then layer up the other salad ingredients.
- Drizzle some more dressing on top and serve straight away.
