Cast & Crew

A hardworking brand for heartfelt food

The team behind the famous Belfast fine food destinations James St. South, the Bar & Grill and Hadskis had spotted an opportunity in the city's growing Titanic Quarter.

A small but perfectly formed ex-bank building was sitting quietly in the shadow of the famous yellow cranes just waiting for an idea. Christened Cast & Crew the ambition for the new restaurant was to provide a food experience that, whilst retaining a foodie ethos at heart, was more industrial and functional in its delivery and its brand needed to reflect that.

We talked to the owners and visited the site, absorbing the images and atmosphere of the area – the huge scale of Samson and Goliath, the impressive Titanic Centre and slipways, the burgeoning Paint Hall Studios and the growing forest of new office buildings.

The brand marries industrial, functional and angular elements with crafted illustration echoing the aim of the restaurant itself to bring a touch of individuality and gourmet sensibility to Ireland's most famous industrial landscape.
