After 31 years in business, Derry and Sallyanne Clarke have made the decision to close their Dublin restaurant, L’Ecrivain, one of the busiest One Michelin Star restaurants in Europe.

L’Ecrivain has held a Michelin star for eighteen unbroken years, but will now close in July.

The couple told their staff yesterday, their suppliers today, and will be emailing all their regular customers on Friday. All staff have been guaranteed jobs with a new bar and restaurant venture in which Derry is a partner which will open on the quays in Temple Bar later this year.
