Belfast Restaurant Week, which takes place from October 6 – 13, will see Belfast City Council teaming up with the city’s top chefs for a week-long campaign designed to showcase the wealth of quality dining experiences Belfast has to offer.
Over 70 city centre restaurants and food outlets have already signed up to the initiative which will celebrate the best of Belfast food by offering diners specially-themed signature dishes from our best chefs and money-off deals at some of the city’s most loved eateries.
Belfast Restaurant Week is being organised by Belfast City Council and is supported by many of the city’s most talented chefs including Michael Deane, Nick Price, Niall McKenna, Paul Rankin and Brian McCann.
Alderman Christopher Stalford, Chairman of Belfast City Council's Development Committee, said: “We have many food heroes in the city, and extremely talented chefs, who are receiving major recognition around the world and are true ambassadors for our excellent food and, indeed, for Belfast and Northern Ireland. Through Belfast Restaurant Week, we aim to recognise and profile their achievements closer to home.”
Restaurateur Michael Deane added: “The world-class Belfast restaurant scene is something that foodies from across Northern Ireland should be incredibly proud of, and through Belfast Restaurant Week, we will celebrate the city’s culinary excellence with a special campaign of special food and unique offers.”
Restaurants wishing to take part in Belfast Restaurant Week must register their interest before August 31 at www.belfastcity.gov.uk/belfastrestaurantweek or www.gotobelfast.com.
