Sometimes I think the grocery store could be considered the all American movie set. There are literally hundreds of pivotal scenes set amongst canned goods – from Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone, The Big Lebowski, The Hurt Locker, Dallas Buyers Club, The Wrestler, Father of the Bride – to name a few. But then I walk into my local Aldi or Spar and I think, this is not the place where great moments happen. Step forward then Lotts & Co, Dublin’s newest grocer opening it’s doors today on South Lotts Road. The building was a car showroom until the team behind Juniors & The Old Spot got hold of it a few months back. Now it is clad top to bottom in white subway tiles and decked out with posh wooden crates, flower carts and chic industrial lighting. They have filled the store with the kind of things they want to eat and find in Dublin, think fresh fish, meats from FK Buckley & McLoughlins, cheese counter, rotisserie, coffee from Cloud Picker, local breads and of course an eclectic wine selection. They are making salads, juices and as much else possible in house. Definitely a store for great moments. / Ali Dunworth
