World-renowned chef Jean-Christophe Novelli has given Belfast diners a flavour of the culinary expertise he’ll be bringing to the city when he opens his new signature restaurant in City Quays, the latest development at Belfast Harbour Estate.

This will be the only restaurant the multi-Michelin-starred and 5 out of 5 AA Rosette award-winning chef will open on the island of Ireland, and will be part of the new £25 million Marriott Hotel.
