We are delighted to be teaming up with Belfast’s celebrated new restaurant OX for a fabulous evening of Bordeaux wine paired with a specially selected menu.
Ox burst on to Belfast culinary scene to great acclaim in March 2013, run by Belfast-born Stephen (formerly head chef of James Street South) and Brittany native Alain (formerly restaurant manager and sommelier of Deanes)
What they say:
“Our focus is on bringing you a top quality, memorable and affordable product that you will want to try again and again.” Alain
“We enjoy working for our customers and believe everyone should be able to enjoy fantastic food and wine, something a little different, in a relaxed environment.” Stephen
What others say:
“Ox simply wants to be best in class and then some. It wants to celebrate the best ingredients on its doorstep, and do it with unstudied professionalism. On those terms it has more than achieved its goals. It does not need to show off. Ox knows it’s the most interesting thing to happen to Belfast in a long while. And the city seems grateful for it.” Jay Rayner, The Observer, Sunday 21 July 2013 (http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2013/jul/21/coppi-mourne-ox-belfast-restaurants)
“In the grand scheme of things, you may be saying this is just a restaurant. And you’d be right but by hell, is it a great one.” John Ferris (http://forked.ie/2013/04/restaurant-review-ox-belfast/)
For centuries wine has been produced in Bordeaux. This has led to a great understanding of the influence of the climate, the land and the grape varieties which produce the best wines in the region. Many of the vineyards are still family-owned.
Each year the winemakers use their skill and experience to blend their grapes – Cabernet and Merlot for the reds, Sauvignon and Sémillon for the whites – to produce wines of character and diversity, whose restrained style makes them especially good with food.
“Good Food would choose Bordeaux” and this evening promises fabulous food and wine.
