Dylan McGrath’s Fade Street Social was SHUT down by the FSAI

Inspired by New York's hip Meatpacking district, it's often been touted as one of the capital's most chic eateries since launching close-to four years ago. 

And certainly, Fade Street Social – part of celebrity chef Dylan McGrath's string of restaurants – draws in a seriously cool crowd, including the likes of Beyonce and Jay-Z, who ate there in March 2014.

However, the Food Safety Authority Of Ireland has today revealed that Fade Street Social was last month ordered to CLOSE DOWN by environmental health officers.

Shut for a full day on July 15, the FSAI ordered the closure because it "deemed that there is or there is likely to be a grave and immediate danger to public health at or in the premises". 

On its website, Fade Street Social boasts that it serves "the very best of homegrown produce," adding that "freshness is the real hero".

When Beyonce and Jay-Z visited the spot two-and-a-half years ago, the Irish Independent reported that Queen Bey tucked into the pumpkin flatbreads garnished with fresh rosemary, parmesan, onion purée, sliced chestnut and fried mushroom, while her rapper husband opted for a classic strip steak and a serving of chips.
