The Story

The Story


















Temple Garner has previously received the Michelin award ‘Bib Gourmand’(Red M) at The Mermaid Cafe and was the head chef, co-owner and founder of Town Bar and Grill in 2004-2009. He went on to open Dilinger’s restaurant in Ranelagh for John Farrell and in 2011 opened San Lorenzo’s, a modern Italian New York style restaurant in the heart of Dublin city. San Lorenzo’s is also home to the #brunchofchampions , hailed as the best brunch in Dublin.


We are situated on Georges street, Dublin 2, close to Temple Bar, the Grafton street area, Christchurch and Trinity College. With high quality ingredients and laid back casual style, we are now the hottest restaurant for locals and those visiting Dublin for quality Italian food with a NYC twist. And course our famous brunch!


We believe in seasonal, locally sourced Irish produce where possible. Our pork is single farm Co.Wicklow, our beef is Leinster, Hereford or Angus cross breed, our lamb is Co. Kildare Curragh grass fed, our chickens are barnyard humanly reared and our fish and seafood is sustainable and mostly from our Irish Coastal waters. We make all our own pastas, breads and all our desserts and ice creams. Virtually everything is made in house. We delight in preparing the best Ireland has to offer.
