Combining Mickael Viljanen's culinary flair with Ross Lewis's long tradition of peerless hospitality, Chapter One is located in Parnell Square in Dublin's north inner city. As a former home of John Jameson, this much lauded restaurant retains authentic granite walls and sash windows and has been carefully renovated to create an airy, welcoming ambience where the emphasis is on understated luxury.

Opened in 1994, today the restaurant is co-owned by Ross (its original co-founder) and by Finnish two-Michelin starred chef Mickael Viljanen, who took over as Chef-Patron in 2021. Ross's tradition of 'hospitalitarianism' continues with service that is warm and welcoming while retaining a high level of efficiency and professionalism.

The food, meanwhile, reflects Mickael's signature style: beautiful, delicious, precise dishes prepared with the finest ingredients.
