Boozy Brunching at Babel, Belfast

If there’s one thing that I enjoy more than a nice cocktail, it’s an unlimited supply of a nice cocktail. A few weeks back to celebrate her birthday, we took our gal Legally Brunette NI to our first bottomless brunch at Babel. 

I will admit, I was somewhat sceptical before going as to what we would get for our money. I had preconceptions of pre-mixed, watered down, batch cocktails and pre-made, just okay food. It is a business after all and I tend to believe that if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I couldn’t have been more wrong on this one.

Restaurant Review: Six By Nico, Belfast

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock recently, you’ll have seen that Belfast has a brand spanking new restaurant in the heart of Cathedral Quarter, Six By Nico.

The restaurant is the brainchild of talented Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone and is the third restaurant to open its doors in the already hugely successful chain (there’s also one in Glasgow and another in Edinburgh).

The concept is simple yet genius. Every 6 weeks, Six By Nico serves a brand new, 6 course tasting menu, each themed differently. From Tuesday 5th March to Sunday 14th April, the tasting menu in Belfast is “The Chippie”.

We were very fortunate to be invited down last week to try the menu for ourselves by the wonderful PR team and were hosted by the gorgeous Cathy Martin and I couldn’t have been quicker to accept the very generous invitation.

Belfast BYOB Restaurant Review – The Lantern

Belfast has some wonderful restaurants to choose from and with that in mind, when I’m going out for a meal I always try to go somewhere new. I was still feeling the post-Christmas pinch recently (eek) and a meal with my best friend usually involves the wine costing more than the food, so we decided to look into BYOB restaurants in Belfast City Centre.

We decided to go with The Lantern, ideally situated on Wellington Place, and only a short walk from both of our offices.
