6 Fine Dining Experiences In Brighton
When you think of fine dining, Brighton may not be the first place that springs to mind. Brighton however is home to one of the World’s best Food Festivals and actually has one restaurant for every 10 people living in the city. It goes without saying that these are not all fine dining experiences but Brighton is home to some imaginative and inspirational eateries - here is our thoughts on 6 that Brighton has to offer, in no particular order!
The Coal Shed - Boyce’s Street, Brighton
The Coal Shed is quickly becoming one of the most talked about restaurants in Brighton. A different take on the ‘Fine Dining’ experience. Here they cook the very best steak and fish over a specially imported charcoal oven, to produce quality food with exceptional taste. Using ethically reared Highland Beef, locally caught fish, brought in daily and offering some very tasty vegetarian options, there is sure to be something on the menu to suit everyone’s taste. Plus the chips are amazing!
Graze Restaurant - Western Road, Brighton
This award winning restaurant definitely sits amongst the top of the tree in Brighton, offering a truly exceptional culinary experience. Set in the Regency setting of Brunswick Square, Graze has a relaxed atmosphere and attentive service, it truly offers a dining experience to be savoured. The locally sourced, seasonal produce is skilfully crafted into food that is fresh, creative and full of flavour and leaves you wanting to go back. Graze has a range of menu options but the Taster Menu is highly recommended. Ideal for a special occasion or a romantic meal for two - great with valentine’s day, just around the corner.
The Jolly Poacher - Ditchling Road, Brighton
Offering great quality British Cuisine, this new kid on the block is a Gastro Pub which will leave you wanting to come back. Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, chef Anthony Burns creates a month watering menu that is easy on the wallet.
The Foragers - Stirling Place, Hove
This Gastro Pub tucked away in a residential street in Hove has the ethos of ‘Think global, act local’. It’s all about sustainability. I guess the clue is in the name but The Foragers menu features local sourced, 100% organic and free range produce with the twist being foraged greens, herbs and spices from around Sussex. The seasonal menu offers high quality traditional food cooked to perfection, served by friendly staff in a great atmosphere.
Terre a Terre - East Street, Brighton
Think vegetarian food is boring? Think again! The chefs at Terre a Terre push the boundaries of meat free cooking, making it one of the most exciting restaurants in the UK. With a focus on flavour, the food couldn’t be further away from your thoughts on the vegetarian option. Using fresh ingredients and inspiration from around the World, they server up outstanding food with imagination that will tantalise your taste buds. A great relaxed atmosphere and very much a family restaurant.
Sam’s Of Brighton - Kemp Town, Brighton
Situated in the heart of vibrant Kemp Town, Sam’s serves up seasonal British food with an innovative twist. Using the freshest locally sourced ingredients, the food is cooked to perfection from a mouth watering menu which has something for even the fussiest eaters. There is always a great atmosphere in the restaurant The service is attentive, never over bearing, allowing you to dine at your own pace but without having to catch the waitress’s eye every time you want something. Sam’s is definitely up there in terms of the quality of food and well worth a visit. However it is a little intimate as the tables could be slightly further apart.
