Central Wine Bar
This award winning restaurant in Ballycastle was opened by Phillip and Gemma McHenry in 2007. They work alongside their children Nichola, Aaron, Cara and Michael. They’ve got a super team of chefs who love local, seasonal ingredients. Their constantly changing menus cover everything from quick lunches to lingering a la carte evening meals.
They do everything from the very popular and versatile Central Superfood Salad which is gluten free, vegan and vegetarian. It has quinoa, lentils, pearl couscous, squash, fruit, marinated local beetroot, nuts, berries, seeds hummus lettuce cups and a maple agave and mustard dressing. You can add Armagh chargrilled chicken, Irish salmon or smoked North Coast cod. Try the McKay’s Family Butchers Sirloin Steak with buttermilk and black pepper onion rings and Bushmills mixed peppercorn cream sauce.
Like we say, the menu changes all the time, but expect choices like Seafood cassoulet with a white bean, pancetta and vegetable cream stew with selections of Central’s breads or Smoked local cod in a white wine, ginger and scallion cream sauce with crispy leeks and creamy champ.
