Ireland gets a taste of what’s in store with Jean-Christophe Novelli visit


Multi-Michelin Starred chef Jean-Christophe Novelli visited Belfast to give a flavour of what he’s planning for diners as he gets set to open his first restaurant in Ireland. The restaurant will be part of the new €29m Marriott Hotel in City Quays.

The 104-seat restaurant, which opens next year, will be known as “Jean-Christophe Novelli at City Quays”, and form part of the four-star AC Hotel by Marriott Belfast. Belfast’s newest waterfront hotel development will feature a bar, lounge, gym, meeting rooms and almost 190 bedrooms.

Novelli said: “The city has a well-deserved reputation as a must-visit food destination, and I can’t wait to add my expertise to what is an already successful and thriving hospitality industry here. “

Graeme Johnston, Property Director of Belfast Harbour, said: “Jean-Christophe Novelli is a true champion of high quality, down-to-earth and innovative menu combinations and his decision to choose City Quays, and Belfast, is a testament to the success of our development plans for this key city centre site and the strong demand for great hospitality and the vibrancy of our visitor economy.”

More than €300m has been earmarked for investment across the 20-acre City Quays site, the city’s newest mixed-used regeneration project.
