Winners from the Ulster Restaurant Awards at Titanic Belfast 2015

The Ulster Regional Final of the Irish Restaurant Awards 2015,  took place in The Titanic Belfast last Tuesday night and named the top restaurants in the nine counties. Over 500 restaurant owners and staff celebrated their hard work and achievements at the Awards, which saw many well-known restaurateurs of Ulster, turn out to see if they had won one of the prestigious awards. Speaking to TheTaste on the night Chief Executive of the Restaurants Association of Ireland Adrian Cummins said

“The Irish restaurant scene is internationally recognised for its high calibre of restaurateurs and chefs. These awards celebrate the people that make the restaurant sector the dynamic and exciting industry it is. They are the people who provide 72,000 jobs to our economy and generate revenue in excess of €2 billion. We’re recognising the talent, hard work and commitment that everyone here gives to the food industry. Tonight, everyone is a winner.”

Having won the Best Newcomer and Best Chef Award in 2013, Best Restaurant, Best Wine Experience and Best Chef in 2014, OX once again took home the award for Best Restaurant and Best Wine Experience in Antrim.
