Property That Housed Dublin’s L’Ecrivain Restaurant To Become Office Furniture Showroom Venue

The property that housed Derry and Sallyanne Clarke’s l’Ecrivain Restaurant on Dublin’s Baggot Street Lower will become an office furniture showroom venue.

Derry and Sallyanne Clarke announced in February of 2020 that they would close l’Ecrivain in July of 2020 after 31 years of running the restaurant. They subsequently announced in May of last year that they would delay the restaurant’s closure until December of 2020.

The property was then sold earlier this year.

 

New Owners Plans

According to The Irish Times, an examination of the planning permission secured by the property’s new owners, office supplies specialist MJ Flood, shows that l’Ecrivain will be converted into “five [office furniture] showrooms”.

Attempts by The Irish Times to contact MJ Flood’s principals, John Power and Michael Power jnr, for comment on plans to locate on Lower Baggot Street were reportedly unsuccessful.

 

MJ Flood Information

As reported by The Irish Times, according to its MJ Flood, which was established in 1935, is “the largest indigenous supplier of copiers, digital technology, office furniture and interiors for the modern office environment”.

The privately owned company, which is currently headquartered in Baldonnel Business Park, reportedly employs more than 300 people and has an annual turnover of more than €120 million.
