Eric Tydgadt, a native of Belgium but a complete Francophile at heart, opened La mère Zou in 1994, 21 years later the restaurant is still going strong offering some of the best French food in Dublin. Though no longer in the kitchen, La mère Zou still excels in the solidly French, traditional bistro style of cooking that Eric introduced to Dublin. La mère Zou is still one of the best places to eat in Dublin
