"The newest business in the village sits just inside the aegis of the estate: The world Gate restaurant opened in December. It is a French eatery run b Stan d'Anthouard, who comes from Picardy, in France and spent 12 years working for a multinational in Dundalk. " The menu in many places was very similar, I thought there was an opportunity for a different experience," he says. A long search for a suitable chef eventually brought chef Thomas to Ireland, from a Michelin two-star restaurant in France.
"My ambition is always to produce simple, attractively presented food, sourced from suppliers within 10km of the restaurant," says Thomas.
"I've been in Ireland for only three months, but already when I walk down through Termonfeckin, everybody calls me by name. I do like to converse with the customers, to see their reaction to the menu, and I find the people so friendly. I've already been invited to play golf, and I'm looking forward to it".

French restaurant opens in Termonfeckin

The World Gate Restaurant opened its doors for business for the first time yesterday in Termonfeckin. The proprietors are two French men, Stan and Thomas, who are both very ambitious and have their sights set on achieving a Michelin star. At least one!

Stanislaus (Stan) Danthouard and Thomas Fleury have put many weeks of hard work preparing for their new venture and were both very pleased with the turnout for a special official opening event which took place last Sunday.

“We were delighted with the turnout” said Stan. “There were about 300 people through the door on the day including the Mayor and the Deputy Mayor.

“All the food we prepared was eaten and we got some very encouraging comments” said Thomas who is classically trained in French Cuisine and has worked in the business for 22 years in restaurants all over the world including Germany, Spain. USA and of course, France.

Thomas’ last job was as chef in the world renowned three Michelin starred restaurant L’Esperance in the French town of Vezelay in the north-central French region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.

The pair have some great ambitions for their new business at the very heart of which is great cuisine. They boast that The World Gate is the only restaurant serving genuine French cuisine in Counties Louth and Meath and North Dublin.

“I want to introduce the people of the locality to a new style of cuisine, one that they may not have experienced before” said Chef Thomas.

“I’ll be using only the freshest of ingredients and all of it is being sourced within ten kilometres of the restaurant.

“We’ll start off with the basics of French Cuisine and gradually move on from there as guests get acquainted with the French style” he said

The Mantra at The World Gate, which is just inside the gates of An Grianan, is fresh and local served up at a price that is affordable. The ambition is to achieve a Michelin Star. “At least one!” Thomas laughs.

The overriding theme is French but Stan and Thomas will also be doing special Spanish, Portuguese and other European nights with musical accompaniment from time to time.

“It will be Spanish or Portuguese alright, but cooked with a French Technique!” says Thomas.  

Dessert anyone?

Stan, who is from the Picardy region of France, is a business studies graduate and has been living and working for multi nationals in Ireland for the past 12 years.

He has long wanted to open his own business and he spotted what he considers to be a gap in the market for a restaurant offering genuine French cuisine at a reasonable price.

“Together Thomas and I will bring new dishes to an Irish clientele” he said. “We’ll be providing what will be a new dining experience to many Irish people. We hope to grow the business slowly and bring change slowly over time.”
