Editor's Viewpoint: Jean-Christophe Novelli restaurant plan huge endorsement for city
News that multi-Michelin star-winning chef Jean-Christophe Novelli has chosen Belfast as the location for his first Irish restaurant is confirmation of the growing reputation of the city among the culinary cognoscenti.
It does not seem that long ago that there were only a handful of fine dining establishments in the city. Now we are almost spoiled for choice.
Jean-Christophe follows in the footsteps of Marco Pierre White, who has his name on the steakhouse at the Park Avenue Hotel, staking his reputation on the quality of the food there. And it is the quality of local produce as well as cooking skills which is making the city a must-visit destination.
