Brighton Food & Restaurant News

I like to keep my ear close to the ground when it comes to Brighton food news. So pop by here to find out all the latest news on the upcoming and newly launched Brighton restaurants, cafes and pop-ups and supper clubs. Occasionally I also like to post interviews with the top chefs in Brighton too.

  • Brighton has several gluten-free and vegan-friendly pizza restaurants; namely Purezza, Pizzaface and Morelli Zorelli – all of which I’ve tried vegan pizza from. And I’ll be honest, from what I tasted there, congealed vegan cheese isn’t something I’d ever choose to order… Until I tried the new gluten-free and vegan menu at Fatto a Mano.

  • In aid of humanitarian organisation Action Against Hunger, I, along with Andy Lynes, Euan McDonald, The Graphic Foodie, Tom Flint, and Rosie Posie have agreed to swap pens for pans and prepare a one-off, six-course menu, to be judged by Brighton’s restaurateurs, chefs and diners (cue my nervous twitchy face).

  • So here we are in March already! The start of the year has practically flown by and I think that’s partly to do with how much the Brighton food scene is thriving right now. There are several exciting new openings on the horizon including etch. from Stephen Edwards on Church Road in Hove, Pascere from Tom Griffiths and Amanda Menahem in The Lanes and Pike & Pine from Matt Gillan on St James’ Street (watch this space for my reviews).

  • Last night the atmosphere was electric as the movers, shakers and culinary elite of Brighton’s food scene packed into Brewdog for the second annual Brighton’s Best Top 20 Restaurants Awards. As I scoured the room I was honoured to be amongst such esteemed company and memories came flooding back of all the wonderful meals, exquisite cocktails and friendly service I have received from many of them in the last 12 months.

  • As the inaugural OctoberBEST draws to a close, you’re probably planning to buckle down and pause on extravagant dining-out habits until closer to Christmas. But let’s face it, that’s no fun at all. Lucky then, there’s a new iPhone app, which curates the best weekly food & drink offers, foodie events and pop-ups in Brighton & Hove (and London) for you.

  • The locally-run, Brighton Food Tours, is introducing a special Christmas shopping version of their five-star-rated Brighton food tour, to help you tackle the present buying mission in one hit! The Christmas edition of the tour will run between the 18th November and 22nd December and include festive tastings, tipples and exclusive discounts on Christmas food and presents across a plethora of inde food and drink retailers in Brighton.
