New name and set­ting for french restau­rant

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY MICHELLE WEIR

A POP­U­LAR French restau­rant is on the move this week with a new menu at a new lo­ca­tion in Belfast city cen­tre.

La Bastille will open on Fri­day at 44 Hill Street in the Cathe­dral Quar­ter af­ter nearly 10 years on the Lis­burn Road.

The restau­rant will be known as Forty-four and a new menu will ac­com­pany the new name.

The own­ers say it will be a “cel­e­bra­tion of mod­ern Mediter­ranean food and drink in­flu­ence in the heart of Cathe­dral Quar­ter, Belfast, us­ing lo­cal pro­duce”.

Restau­rant critic Joris Minne said: “La Bastille has proven to be a stal­wart and its en­dur­ing pop­u­lar­ity is a trib­ute to the team.

“Mov­ing to Cathe­dral Quar­ter is not a sur­prise as the cen­tre of gravity of Belfast’s night-time econ­omy seems to have been head­ing that way for the last three years.”

The devel­op­ment is in con­trast to other well-known eater­ies which have shut. The shut­ters have come down on Moody Boar in Ar­magh and the own­ers of the Bull and Ram in Bal­ly­nahinch and Belfast have closed both lo­ca­tions.
