Latest Eating Out News
Joris Minne: Donegan's, Bangor
The bar tzar Bill Wolsey, who owns one of the biggest portfolios of pubs, restaurants and hotels in Northern Ireland, can trace the roots of his vast empire back to Bangor. In the heady days of the Sixties and Seventies, Bangor was the seaside resort of choice for the middle classes. Later it became an oasis of relative peace and calm which remained largely immune from the Troubles and as a result of its blessed position was able to offer night time entertainment as Belfast's bars and clubs closed their doors at 6pm for security reasons.
Joris Minne: Prezzo!
There's a lot to be said for the efficiency of European city centre mid-range restaurants geared up for feeding shoppers, office workers and museum visitors. Pick any city between Amsterdam and Albufeira and in their centres you will find clean, formica-clad, brightly lit, food businesses offering a small range of dishes of the day at reasonable prices. They generally don't have much character or charm. They are there to service, not to entertain.
Joris Minne: Swift
New restaurants should be treated with the same patience you would show a toddler taking his first steps. The nightmares experienced by owners choosing the cutlery, furniture and glassware are one thing. But the horror show which an executive chef will have suffered before finally agreeing the menu (strike the last one if you're opening a burger bar, fish and chip counter or pie stall) is worse than any torture.
Joris Minne: Enigma
Holywood, Co Down. The town with its own accent (pronounced: ex-sent) is a lovely little community of aspiring and arrived done-wells. Comedian Nuala McKeever immortalised them in her character, Hilary Hamilton.
