A top decorative artist once told me, when designing a room, start with the ceiling and work down. It’s not something I’d have ever thought of but it certainly didn’t escape restaurateur Asheesh Dewan when revamping his Chakra restaurant in Greystones, as the vast black ceiling embellished with botanical flowers is beyond stunning.

It’s not the first time Dewan — who owns the Jaipur Group, with restaurants also in Dalkey, Dundrum and Malahide — has gone for drama above eye-level; I’m always fascinated by the magnificent, expansive, water-lily-like silk shades in Ananda, his Dundrum Town Centre restaurant.
