Pichet Restaurant Celebrates 15 Years

Pichet, on Dublin’s Trinity Street, celebrated 15 years in business this month with a celebratory dinner, wherein guests enjoyed a six-course menu showcasing the style of Pichet through popular dishes from the last decade and a half.

The restaurant was opened by chef patron Stephen Gibson in 2009 and has won numerous awards since then, including a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide.

‘Exceptional Culinary Experiences’

“Reflecting on 15 years of Pichet this year, I am filled with immense pride and gratitude,” said Gibson.

“This milestone is a testament to the hard work, passion and dedication of our entire team over the years, who strive daily to create exceptional culinary experiences in Dublin City.”

Global Experience

Gibson spent nine years cooking in kitchens around the world after completing a professional cookery course in Killybegs Regional College.


He has worked at Michelin-starred brasserie Fauchon in Paris and Café Otto in Sydney.

Gibson then spent a year working with Paul Flynn in La Stampa, before taking the opportunity to cook on the QE2 for 12 months in 1998.

L’Ecrivain Restaurant

After this, Gibson spent some time in London with Nico Ladenis, at 90 Park Lane.

Gibson worked for five years as head chef in Dublin’s L’Ecrivain Restaurant, until 2009, when he opened Pichet.

Significant Anniversary

“As we celebrate this significant anniversary, we look forward to the future with excitement and anticipation, eager to continue crafting unforgettable dining experiences,” said Gibson.

“Here’s to many more years of sharing our passion for food and hospitality with all of you.”
