It is the annual Michelin Guide Stars Awards day (16 February, 2022) and it is a good one for Ireland with two Irish restaurants moving up to two-star status and two others gaining a one-star. They are all in Dublin. The two-star winners are Chapter One and Liath. The new one-star awards go to Bastible and Glovers Alley.
Four Dublin Restaurants Awarded Michelin Stars
When Finnish chef Mickael Viljanen joined Chapter One by MV, last May it was therefore expected that he would achieve the two-star Michelin status. In his previous restaurant, The Greenhouse on Dublin’s Dawson Street he had the two-star rating.
In the Blackrock-based restaurant Liath, Chef Grey has always stressed. ” A restaurant is not one person but a group of likeminded individuals who prize the spirit of togetherness and community above all else.”
The restaurants being promoted to one-star rating are Bastible on Dublin’s South Circular Road and Glovers Alley at the Fitzwilliam Hotel on St Stephen’s Green.
19 Irish Restaurants Retain Michelin Status
Nineteen restaurants in Ireland that had stars in the 2021 Michelin Guide retained them, apart from the Greenhouse, which is currently closed. Four restaurants in Ireland now have the significant two-star status. They include the long-standing Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud at the Merrion Hotel and Aimsir, at the Cliff at Lyons in Co. Kildare. And the newcomers, Chapter One by MV and Liath.
This year only five restaurants received the Michelin Guide two-star level across Britain and Ireland. As a result Ireland did very well, taking two of them. Congratulations to all the chefs that have achieved such eminence from the Michelin Guide. We are sure the readers of travel2ireland will enjoy being your guests in the future.
