Jean-Christophe Novelli to open restaurant at Belfast Harbour development

Celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli will be opening a 100-cover restaurant at Belfast's City Quays development.

The restaurant, Jean-Christophe Novelli at City Quays, will be part of the new £25m, 190-bedroom AC Hotel by Marriott Belfast and will open once the hotel is completed in the first quarter of 2018.

Featuring a double height glazed façade with views across the river, the restaurant will offer a French-style brasserie menu.

Graeme Johnston, property director of Belfast Harbour, said: "Recognised across the UK, Ireland, Europe and beyond, Jean-Christophe Novelli is a true champion of high quality, 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 waterfront city location, the strong demand for great hospitality and the vibrancy of our visitor economy.

"Strategically located, this exciting new restaurant is great news for the local economy and will provide a welcome addition to Belfast and Northern Ireland's strong hospitality, leisure and tourism offer. It's a real coup for Belfast and I look forward to an outstanding first year when our hotel opens its doors in 2018."
