It has been a whirlwind couple of years for Chef Danni Barry, who after taking up the mantle at Michael Deane’s EIPIC in March 2014 landed a Michelin star in September 2015. Having retained the star for the third year running at this year’s Michelin Guide UK and Ireland announcement, Danni has revealed that she has left Belfast’s EIPIC to set up her dream restaurant.
Danni will reopen Clenaghans restaurant in the village of Aghalee in partnership with Stevie and Cristina Higginson of the hugely popular Square Bistro in Lisburn. The picturesque former pub dates back to the 17th century and will house a cosy and an informal eatery ‘where old meets new’, with Danni at the helm.
The menu at Clenaghans is expected to be largely produce driven and casual, with the bold flavours which won Danni her star taking centre stage. With the ethos of “making the most of the ingredients we have around us, and trying to get as much flavour out of them as possible,” both the restaurant menu and more laid back pub fare are sure to draw visitors from far and wide to the village, just outside Moira.
