l’Ecrivain Launches New Pre-Theatre Menu

Michelin Star restaurant l’Ecrivain has been setting the benchmark for Irish cuisine since its foundation in 1989.

Award winning chef Derry Clarke and his wife Sallyanne have created an extraordinary culinary experience that combines great local and seasonal produce with creative cooking and warm Irish hospitality.

Their menus are constantly being reinvented and now l’Ecrivain have launched a brand new Pre-Theatre Menu to welcome the change in the seasons.

Their Lower Baggot Street location is just a short walk to Dublin’s best theatres: The National Concert Hall, The Gaiety Theatre and The Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
