Award-winning Restaurateur and Tourism Hero Niall McKenna and his team are celebrating after James Street South Bar + Grill was today Thursday 25th September awarded a much sought after Bib Gourmand in the official 2015 Michelin Guide – one of only three new awards in Northern Ireland.
A Bib Gourmand indicate the inspectors’ favourite establishments, offering high-quality products and services and good value for the money.
The honour comes just weeks after James Street South was named Northern Ireland’s restaurant of the year in the 2015 Waitrose Good Food Guide, with Cathedral Quarter new-comer Hadskis also making the list for the first time.
The James Street South Bar + Grill is now one of only seven restaurants in Northern Ireland to have been awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand recognition.
Owner Niall McKenna said it’s a fantastic endorsement for Head Chef Carl Johannsens and the team:
“To be recognised with a Michelin Bib Gourmand after only just being named Restaurant of The Year for Northern Ireland in the official Waitrose Good Food Guide is a further confirmation of our continued commitment to excellence .”
“This is great news for the James Street South Group, and all our staff. It’s also a big and important win for Belfast, which is being increasingly recognised for its exceptional food offering we have worked tirelessly over the years to promote world-class food using the finest local produce for the city’s fast-growing army of good food aficionados,” said Niall
