The High Court has confirmed the appointment of an examiner to a company that operates a restaurant, several cafes and a gastropub in Dublin.

It also operates cafes at Malahide, Parliament Street, Dublin 2, and at Sandycove.

Mr Justice Humphreys was told that there has been some interest in the company from potential investors.

Restaurant loses outdoor seats



Dublin City Council has turned down an application by the owners of Osteria Lucio — a popular Italian restaurant next to the railway bridge on Grand Canal Quay — for retention permission for its outdoor seating structure.
 The restaurant is owned by Ross Lewis, who also runs the award-winning Chapter One restaurant on Parnell Square, and Italian chef Luciano Tona.
 The application to retain the outdoor seating area was opposed by several local residents who claimed it was an unauthorised development as its licence had expired and that it had taken over a large section of the public footpath.
 A spokesperson for Dublin City Council confirmed it had issued an enforcement notice on Osteria Lucio earlier this year over its outdoor seating structure and that “investigations are ongoing”.
