• It was a warm summer evening and the first week of Brighton Festival. People were tumbling out of pubs and onto the streets, but I was off to the quieter end of town, to Preston Road, home to Cafe Rust and regular restaurant pop-ups. My friend Catherine joined me for dinner and we made ourselves at home in my favourite spot in the window.

  • Olive Grove is a family-run, Mediterranean restaurant tucked away in the South Lanes (just 20 metres from Riddle & Finns). Depending on how long you’ve known Brighton, you may remember it was formerly Yum Yum Ninja and prior to that, Tootsies.
