The winners of the 12th Annual FOOD&WINE Magazine / Louis Latour Restaurant of the Year Awards were announced at a gala luncheon at the Dublin Convention Centre on Sunday, 19 August.
Chapter One, in Dublin, swept the boards with a total of six awards including Chef of the Year for Ross Lewis and the coveted Restaurant of the Year title. Chapter One previously scooped the Restaurant of the Year Award in 2009 and 2010. Located on Dublin's northside, Chapter One Restaurant opened in February 1992 with co-proprietors Ross Lewis and Martin Corbett.
Speaking about the win, Ross Golden-Bannon, editor of The Food & Wine Magazine, said: "Chapter One has swept the boards this year with six Food&Wine Magazine Maison Louis Latour Restaurant of the Year awards and deservedly so. They continually deliver quality Irish food, served to the highest standards in a restaurant that exudes style and class while making patrons feel at home."
