OX, Belfast Took home two top awards at the Food and Wine Awards in Dublin on Sunday 6th November, 2022. The ceremony took place at the Mansion House to celebrate the talent, determination and resilience of the Irish food and drinks sector.
The Taste of Ulster member restaurant whose Head Chef is Stephen Toman won Best Restaurant and Best Wine Experience Ulster. The sommelier is Alain Kerloc’h. Both are friends who opened OX in March 2013. The menus are based around the best seasonal local produce with vegetables and fruit being paid careful attention.
