Belfast's Shu is a French-influenced restaurant that's a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Set within a gorgeous Victorian mansion, Shu seats 90 in a dining room that features an open kitchen, so the meal becomes almost a show. Serving a seasonal menu of local flavors, the chefs at Shu use a French style to bring elegance to Irish cooking. Foie Gras and creme fraiche are definitely on the menu, but they're used to complement the heart of the menu: U.K.-grown vegetables and locally-raised meats. A basement cocktail bar serves fruity concoctions before and after dinner, and a private patio is available to rent for special events.
