Local award-winning restaurant, George’s of the Market, recently hosted a decadent evening of ‘Twilight Tastes’ in celebration of some of Northern Ireland’s finest produce.
With a balcony overlooking one of Belfast’s most beloved and oldest attractions, guests were treated to a sparking drinks reception where they took in spectacular views of the first ever Twilight Market in St George’s below.
Having worked up an appetite from the colourful sights and sounds on offer, guests enjoyed a tasty five course menu to warm the soul from inside the newly refurbished restaurant, with each dish specially prepared by Head Chef, James Bell.
Showcasing the finest quality and diversity of local produce, dishes included rump steak with 8 hour braised ox cheek from Hannans in Moira and blackened cod from Walter Ewing’s in Belfast.
Brian Martin, a member of the management team at George’s of the Market said: “We pride ourselves on sourcing the most exceptional quality of local produce that meets the high expectations of our customers and delivers on taste, aroma, texture and colour.
“In particular, our dedication towards the traders of St George’s Market, whom we have worked closely with for over 15 years, is stronger than ever before by ensuring their presence is felt both inside the restaurant and on the menu.
“We feel privileged to have such a unique proposition where consumers can enjoy the electric atmosphere of the famous St George’s Market from the comfort of a relaxed dining environment.
“Indeed, it’s not every day a customer can actually see and connect with a trader whose products are on the restaurant menu and I hope that’s something we were able to demonstrate on our evening of Twilight Tastes.”
As a final gesture to remember the experience by, guests were given a complementary foodie bag, filled to the brim with delicious goods from St George’s Market, as featured on the menu, to take home and enjoy.
With convenient opening times of 10.00am-2.30pm for brunch Tuesday to Sunday and 5.00pm-9.30pm Wednesday to Saturday for dinner, diners can enjoy a stunning meal at George’s of the Market any time of the day.
