Legion Honour for Gilbaud

Restaurateur Patrick Guilbaud has been awarded the Legion d’Honneur for his work as a French citizen in the fine dining industry.


The  French-born chef received the award for his “45 years of service” as a chef and restaurant owner, the Legion d’Honneur said.
 The award is the highest honour that can be bestowed by the French government, and is typically rewarded to French citizens.
Mr Guilbaud’s restaurant, established in 1981, is currently the only one in Ireland with two Michelin stars. It moved from its former premises at St James’s Place off Baggott Street to the current surroundings at the Merrion Hotel in 1997.
The award comes after new accounts filed by the restaurant’s Becklock Ltd show accumulated profits increased from €356,256 to €444,295 in 2014.
