Three-time Michelin starred chef Marco Pierre White has opened his second Dublin restaurant, this time setting up shop in Donnybrook near RTÉ’s head offices.
The Marco Pierre White Courtyard Bar & Grill differs from his Dawson St Steakhouse & Grill in a number of ways, chiefly the layout lending itself to more casual dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Seating for up to 130 is framed by impressive furnishings and European-styled interior layout, including a stained glass ceiling from Paris. The restaurant is again a collaboration between White and restauranteurs Fitzers Holdings.
Many of White’s signature dishes will be available at the new Donnybrook branch along with local specials such as smoked mackerel. The new eatery aims to source as many ingredients in Ireland as possible.
Marco Pierre White is perhaps best known as the youngest chef ever to be awarded three Michelin stars, although he is arguably as well known as the chef who helped train Gordon Ramsay.
