How exciting! Brighton gets its first (well, that I know of) pop up restaurant.
Londoners have been treated to quite a few but we like to do things a bit differently down here and this pop up will also have the additional ingredient of a different resident artist at each service, creating work inspired by the restaurant (and its customers!) during your meal that you can then bid for after online. As well as painters; illustrators, graffiti artists and embroiderers have been billed and you can see which artist will be working and when here.
I met up with the organiser to get the low down. Alongside professional chefs, the food will be catered for by students from the hospitality and catering course at City College Brighton, who are no strangers to paying diners, operating a public restaurant Tuesdays to Thursdays anyway. Lunch is just 12.50 and dinner is £16.50 and wines will be supplied by local Butlers Wine Cellar and I am really looking forward to trying Dark Star Brewery's Espresso beer to cap things off with.
You may even (not confirmed) see me doing my best Manuel impression working front of house for one night!
Just down from the train station and part of the Brighton Fringe Festival, it's a date for your diary.
