Michael, Kate & Marco Deane

At a celebration dinner last night (Thursday 30 March) in Deanes Flagship premises on Howard Street; Michael Deane recreated a signature menu from his Michelin starred ‘Restaurant Michael Deanes which opened in 1997 and held a star for 13 consecutive years; the longest ever in Northern Ireland. On the menu last night (Thursday) were classic dishes such as Chicken Ballotine with Lobster, Scallop with Black Pudding & Potato Bread and Beef Fillet with Marrow.

While Restaurant Michael Deane no longer exists, Deanes still holds a Michelin Star in  Deanes Eipic, the most prestigious of the 7 restaurants in the city which Michael Deane has developed. Over the 20 years, Michael himself and Deanes Restaurants have achieved a string of accolades including Restaurant of The Year in Ireland, Restaurant of The Year in Scotland & Northern Ireland and Michael Deane was hailed as Entrepreneur of the Year in Ireland last year.

At the celebration dinner Michael Deane said, “From my earliest days I wanted to set a standard for the best quality and best value eating out experience possible.  Over the years I have come to learn that it is the customers, not the critics who decide if you are a success and that is very humbling. Indeed, it’s our loyal customers and our dedicated team of staff that have made possible this wonderful celebration of 20 years in business”.
