Michael Deane, Deanes, Belfast

Michael Deane

Deservedly hailed as Northern Ireland’s premier restaurateur for many years, chef Michael Deane’s Howard Street venue has long been the benchmark by which other restaurants in the region are judged and - although other talented and dedicated people are also raising the bar for Belfast as a top dining destination - it remains a beacon of excellence. Always ahead of the game and never interested in gimmicks, Michael’s antennae seem to have a private line to the evolving market - and, whenever he senses the need for change, he invariably creates something special and just right. Having spearheaded modern food in Belfast - and, in particular, working with hand picked suppliers and transforming their seasonal ingredients into delicious, perfectly conceived dishes - he continues to provide leadership, and to bring discerning Northern Ireland diners with a cuisine choice of exceptional quality and value.
