MICHELIN Guide - UK & Ireland 2022

“In the most exciting development in Dublin’s restaurant scene in years, Finnish chef Mickael Viljanen moved from the south of the Liffey to the north, to take over as Head Chef and co-owner of Chapter One, an address made famous by Ross Lewis… Mickael uses classical French techniques combined with a subtle modernity as well as plenty of creativity and personality. Sophisticated, beautifully presented dishes are perfectly balanced, with striking natural flavours”
