The Vintage Kitchen on Dublin’s Poolbeg Street is offering free meals for nurses and doctors.
This lovely central Dublin restaurant is sparing a thought for all the brilliant doctors and nurses who are working tirelessly in the fight against coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19. In return for the admirable work they’ve been doing for patients—particularly in the face of this novel virus—The Vintage Kitchen have made a point of saving a table for two every day for lunch and dinner, reserved especially for hospital staff.

In a statement released on Twitter by Chef Sean Drugan, it was announced that the offer will be in play from March 18, and the tables can be reserved on a first come first served basis.
The statements reads: “From Wednesday 18th of March I am keeping a table of two for Nurses and Doctors to avail of free lunch and Dinner.
“I will do this as long as I can and when we are open which is Tuesday to Saturday normally. Our times opening are 12 for lunch, last orders 2.15. Dinner 5.30/6pm or 8.30.
“It is first come based so that means reserving through me via Twitter DM or if you don’t have twitter firstname.lastname@example.org.
“People have different stresses in their life and maybe as a nurse or doctor you can nominate a fellow colleague whom you may think needs it more than you.
“I am doing this for the next few weeks and will review on the 29th of March. If any other restaurant wants to use this statement, please do. Best wishes to all and a healthy future and better sense of community.”
