A DUBLIN RESTAURANT which scooped a Michelin star is booked out until August 2017 after a massive surge in demand.

Heron and Grey, which is located in Blackrock, south Dublin, has no tables left until next year since news of its win last week.

The team will start taking new bookings in the spring.

Damien Grey, one half of the team who set up the eatery, revealed the news this morning.

We interviewed Rebecca Burr, editor of the Michelin Guide and she told TheJournal.ie that its work is not cut and dried.

We tend to hear that restaurants have phones ringing off the hook, but many already had very busy restaurants before that. Heron and Grey for example, is already very successful, we just came along and added what we thought.

“There’s no such thing as a typical Michelin-starred restaurant. I think that’s what makes the stars interesting.”

The addition of Heron & Grey to the guide last week increases to 10 the overall number of Michelin star restaurants in the Republic of Ireland.
