NATIVE by Yellow Door
Simon Dougan of the famous Yellow Door and Marianne Hood have teamed up to open NATIVE by Yellow Door which is situated in the MAC in St Anne’s Square. Naturally there’s brilliant bread all across the menu at this artsy space.
NATIVE by Yellow Door is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and casual pre-theatre dining, when there is a show on in the theatre. They also operate a busy bar when there are performances and a thriving conference and events business.
They are exceptionally proud to showcase the finest locally produced food and drink and even grow their own herbs and salad leaves within the MAC outdoor spaces. Look out for them!
There’s always a Hot Deli Sandwich made with the best in prime local meat. Eat it in the airy, industrial space that is the Metropolitan Arts Centre. You could take in an art exhibition or a show but you’ll find yourself going back time and again for the food alone.
The NATIVE bites menu, available from noon-5pm (or 7.30pm on show nights), was developed to give visitors an opportunity to sample three individual ‘little local bites’ to encourage people to sample dishes that they may not previously have experienced.
With local products namechecked like Fivemiletown cheese, Rockvale Farm chicken, Doran’s mini prime beef burgers and Kilkeel hake, you’ll be so glad you’ve gone NATIVE.
NATIVE were the overall winners of the Hospitality Ulster Commitment to Local Food Award, 2016 and were Highly Commended in Georgina Campbell’s Irish Breakfast Awards 2017 and Commended in the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards 2017 in the Best Food Tourism Experience category
