About the restaurant
We are proud to be a part of Michelin selection. When choosing Blank, you are choosing to embark on a dining experience. You are very much leaving all the choices to us albeit with advance notice, we can cater for vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian and pregnancy diets.

Blank is about more than just a menu; it is about celebrating exceptional produce and people behind it. We work with suppliers, farmers, and growers, big and small, from all provinces of Ireland and we’ve made a promise that our menus will only use produce from this island, unless, in exceptional circumstances it is fundamental to the dish and is not produced here.

We aim to provide the highest level of service but without the pretence. We want you to have fun, and we want to make it personal. Our wine pairing reflects our love for exceptional wine, we put a lot of time and effort into picking wines that don’t only compliment the dishes but complete them with the flavour profile.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Steak
Belfast
About the restaurant
The clue is in the name....and for the juiciest, most flavorsome steaks around, no matter how you take it, it's hard to beat a Josper-cooked steak! The secret is our Josper grill, a very particular style of Spanish charcoal oven, which is regarded by chefs worldwide as the finest method of cooking super tender steaks, while locking in all those wonderful flavors. So whether it's Sirloin or Rib Eye you prefer, the unique smoky, barbecue-style taste of our locally sourced, prime aged steaks is, we believe, out of this world! If, however, steaks are not your thing, then fear not, as we also offer a wide-ranging & amp; varied menu and quick & easy Light Lunch menu.

The grill was fine with a pleasant friendly welcome and atmosphere. Food was ok. We had prawn tagliatelle which was a good portion but a bit oily and salty.

Excellent experience from start to finish. Fantastic selection of delicate teas. The side option of specific pickles to accompany different sandwiches was perfect. It made the sandwiches stand out. The desserts looked amazing and were beautiful to eat. We would highly recommend The Merchant Hotels afternoon tea.
