Dublin’s L’Ecrivain Restaurant Delays Final Closure Date To December

Dublin’s l’Ecrivain Restaurant will now remain operational until December 23.

Earlier this year, owners Derry and Sallyanne Clarke announced that they were planning to close the restaurant, which is located on Dublin’s Baggot Street Lower, in July after 31 years of operating it. However, the couple have decided to change the venue’s closing date as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

Plan In The Works

The restaurant is currently closed due to the crisis, but Derry Clarke told The Irish Times that a plan is in the works to allow the venue to reopen on June 29 under the government’s programme for reopening the economy, which requires restaurants to “comply with social distancing and strict cleaning protocols”.

The Irish Times quotes Mr. Clarke as saying, “We are lucky in the sense that we have a lot of space, we’re a big restaurant and we have big tables.” However, Clarke stated that it will be difficult to make money if l’Ecrivain cannot operate at capacity, given the overheads involved in the restaurant business.

Clarke added, “I’m looking at getting partitions, masks, hand washing stations and someone on the loos all the time cleaning.”
