Chapter One profits soar as Thornton's close down
Chapter One's Ross Lewis is enjoying the fruits of the capital's continuing boom as accumulated profits jumped this year to €308,734.
Located on Dublin's Parnell Square, the fine dining restaurant is one of nine Michelin-starred restaurants in Ireland and new accounts filed show the cash pile at the business jumped from €455,5389 to €622,857 in the 12 months to the end of February 29 of this year.
Along with Kevin Thornton, who announced this week that his famed Thornton's restaurant is closing down, Mr Lewis has long been known as one of Ireland's best chefs.
Mr Thornton and his wife decided to close the doors of the exclusive eatery after they found out they lost their Michelin star via Twitter.
Accumulated profits at Mr Lewis' Chapter One business, Lindley Ltd increased by €19,090 from €289,644 to €308,734 in the year to the end of February 29 last. Mr Lewis led the team that cooked for Queen Elizabeth II at a State banquet at Dublin Castle during the Queen's State visit in 2011.
