Get your teeth into great food at Belfast restaurant week

By Rachel Martin

Get your forks at the ready, as Eat and Drink Belfast Restaurant Week is in full swing. Belfast's restaurants offer events to suit every palate.

A gastronomic tour on Thursday night takes diners around the Titanic Quarter.

The tour, spanning five venues, will give a taste of the docklands in the early 20th century when Belfast's Harland and Wolff shipyard was the largest in the world.

And the popular Dine Around Deanes bus makes a return this Thursday, taking passengers to each of the top chef's restaurants.

Meanwhile, those after high-brow entertainment can find it at the Merchant Hotel's opera dinner, also on Thursday.

And on Friday, the Fitzwilliam Hotel hosts its murder mystery evening.

All this week, Stormont Hotel's La Scala shows off Northern Ireland's Great Taste Award winners on its 'stars' menu, and United Wines will host Anne Vallejo from Marques de Caceres vineyards at Shu and Graze for two special wine tasting menus tonight and tomorrow.

East meets West at Solo Kitchen and Bar for its Bollywood dance night on Saturday, when diners can enjoy authentic Indian flavours while they enjoy live dance entertainment.

Malone Lodge Hotel will take guests through the looking glass and back with its Mad Hatter's dinner party at its Knife and Fork Grill. The event starts tonight and runs for five consecutive evenings.
