James St. is the coming together of two of Belfast’s best restaurants, James Street South Restaurant and The Bar and Grill at James St. The offering is the best of the Bar and Grill’s menu with a few light touches to the fine cooking of James Street South.
Acclaimed Executive Head and Dungannon native Chef Ryan Stringer has just joined the crew. He has serious pedigree having worked in the kitchens of Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons and Copenhagen’s 108 restaurant.
Classic dishes are firmly established on the menu from the crab and chilli linguine, Dundrum crab used on toast, alongside classic bistro dishes such as farmhouse terrine and fruit de mer plates available from Thursday. The charcoal grill still plays centre stage, cooking not just some of the best steaks and prime cuts Northern Ireland has to offer but also fresh whole fish, pork and vegetables.
With a larger, more established bar area, a large range of wines are available alongside a considered spirit list and an extensive whisky offering. Locally produced beer, cider and gins take pride of place on the drinks menu.
Owned by Niall McKenna since 2003 James St. offers locals and tourists a great dining experience in a Belfast city centre. The restaurant team is headed up by Paul McGovern as Restaurant Manager. James St. has two rooms which are available to hire privately for up to 40 guests seated and The Cookery School.
