Double delight for team Deanes with the publication of the Michelin Guide for Great Britain & Ireland 2019. Deanes EIPIC has retained its Michelin Star and Deanes At Queens has once again been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand.
It’s the fourth year in a row that EIPIC, based in Deanes flagship premises in Howard Street, has won the prestigious accolade. The announcement was made at a ceremony in London today. Commenting at the event Restaurateur Michael Deane said “We are absolutely delighted to hold the Star for the fourth consecutive year and retain our Bib Gourmand. It’s a true reflection of the dedication to high standards and the dogged hard work of the team at Deanes.”
Michael Deane himself is now celebrating his eighteenth Michelin Star over twenty two years in four different venues. “There are many award ceremonies these days” he said “which people must find very confusing but Michelin is globally recognised as the one truly objective guide to the quality and standard of restaurants”
“I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Chef Alex Greene who’s been at the helm of Eipic for just a year. He and his team have continued to consistently deliver the quality experience that our customers expect and appreciate. On a personal note, I know that last year wasn’t easy for Alex and his family, winning the Michelin Star is totally massive for them. Alex’s talent, drive and commitment are like nothing I have witnessed in a long time. His relationship with food and his respect for management and business sets him up to lead and inspire the next generation of young chefs and cooks of tomorrow. Alex Greene, I salute you!”
Alex began his cooking career in the Michelin Starred Deanes in 2007 and from there went on to work in Petrus by Gordon Ramsay, Claridge’s by Gordon Ramsay and The Cliff House in Ardmore, all Michelin Starred establishments.
Michael Deane also paid tribute to Deanes Executive Chef Chris Fearon for the team’s repeated success at Deanes At Queens with the award of the Michelin Bib Gourmand signifying what Michelin describe as “exceptionally good food at moderate prices.”
