Food critic sets up re­ward ini­tia­tive for cor­don venues

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY EMMA DEIGHAN

RESTAU­RANT go­ers who have sup­ported hospi­tal­ity busi­nesses within the cor­don area of Belfast city cen­tre could re­ceive a “hon­ours award” as a part of a new busi­ness ini­tia­tive.

The drive to pro­mote and boost the trade of restau­rants that have felt the fi­nan­cial im­pact of the Pri­mark fire in Au­gust was set up by Belfast Tele­graph restau­rant critic Joris Minne “in re­sponse to ap­peals from lo­cal restau­rants im­me­di­ately ad­ja­cent to the cor­don”.

It will see 10 loyal restau­rant go­ers or those who have ven­tured into the area af­ter the fire take away a “mem­ber of the Cor­don Busters” medal.

“The award is open to any din­ers who eat out at one of the city’s ‘restau­rants of the cor­don’. These are Ju­mon, La Taque­ria, Mourne Seafood Bar, The Sa­gart, Manny’s, Ha­vana Bank Square, Pizza Bou­tique, Obento, West and Mag­gie May’s,” said Mr Minne.

To re­ceive a medal, Mr Minne and mem­bers of the new Belfast City Cor­don Busters will se­lect from those who sub­mit im­ages of their re­ceipts from par­tic­i­pat­ing restau­rants to Mr Minne’s Twit­ter ac­count via direct mes­sage @ joris­minne. The scheme closes to­mor­row at 2pm.
