The Pichet Story
After studying in the highly respected Killybegs Regional College, where I completed the Professional Cookery course I spent the next 9 years travelling around the world. Cooking in kitchens from France, in the Parisian food store “Fauchon” (brasserie & Michelin Starred restaurant) to Australia, (a spell in Café Otto Sydney). I spent almost a year working with Paul Flynn in La Stampa in Dublin, before taking the opportunity to cook on the QE2 for 12 months in 1998.
In London a spell with Nico Ladenis at 90 Park Lane, was followed by a two year stop in Gothenberg Sweden at Fiskekrogen. One further year cooking in New Zealand & I returned & settled in Ireland. I spent the following 5 years as Head Chef in Dublin’s L’Ecrivain Restaurant, until 2009 when I opened Pichet on Trinity Street Dublin.
Within its first two years on the Irish dining scene, both Pichet and my team have been shortlisted for many awards, and, we're proud to be awarded a Bib Gourmand by the esteemed Michelin Guide within the first six months.
Pichet was awarded the number one spot in The Dubliner Magazine top 100 Restaurants in Dublin 2012.
Pichet is a classic take on a modern bistro. Combining both french influence and modern Irish cuisine, it has been on the receiving end of numerous awards and Bib Gourmand’s since it’s inception in 2009.
A classic take on a modern bistro… Inspired locally with a French twist.
The Dining Experience
Our menus are created with innovation and seasonality using traditional flavours to create unique new dishes. We use top-quality ingredients from local Irish suppliers that we know and trust. The dishes are locally inspired but with a French twist and are prepared with our extraordinary cooking methods.
We change our menus regularly but our food principles remain the same, from baking our own bread fresh every morning to butchering all our own meat, there is an unparalleled level of detail that goes into making our food the best it can be.
Pichet’s warm and welcoming bar is the perfectly place to enjoy a bite and a selection of modern cocktails with a classic twist. Our wines, craft beers and ciders have all been expertly chosen to showcase our fantastic season and Irish produce.
