We would like to take this opportunity to introduce Amuse Restaurant. Dublin’s latest fine dining venue.
Ideally located on Dawson Street, just a stones throw from St. Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street, Amuse Restaurant is owned and operated by Conor Dempsey and his wife Joanna. Nestled within the hustle and bustle of one of Dublin’s busiest streets a relatively small dining room by Dublin standards, sets the stage for the kind of cooking you will not find anywhere else in Ireland.
Conor’s formative years as a chef were spent firstly in London where he worked in the “Oak- room” the famous 3 Michelin starred Restaurant owned and run by Marco Pierre White. After London, he travelled to France where he worked in Burgundy in the 3 star Michelin Restaurant “La Cote Saint Jacques”. It was here while working along side Japanese chefs, he began to learn about Asian flavours and techniques, the essence behind the cuisine of Amuse Restaurant. In Paris while working in “Le Jules Verne” another highly acclaimed Michelin starred Restaurant in Paris he met Joanna his future wife. After many years abroad and the Celtic Tiger in full roar back home, Conor and Joanna decided to return to Dublin. Finally after spending 7 years as Head Chef in “Dax Restaurant” on Pembroke Street Amuse Restaurant became a reality.
