Prices range from £13.50 (lunch and pre-theatre) to £17.50 (dinner) for 3 courses.
Local Art: On Fridays and Saturdays we will have an artist in residence, charged with creating an original work on site in front of, and perhaps including, the diners. These pieces will be auctioned for the local Alzheimer’s Association charity – an event that last year raised over £1,500.
Full biographies and works from artists available on the website featuring Jan Irvine, Geo Parkin, and Bridget Davies (whose work raised the highest bids last year).
Local Talent: Like Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, the restaurant will again find students from the catering and hospitality course at City College Brighton working alongside professional chefs and front-of-house staff to receive the most exciting training on offer anywhere in the country. Last year’s students achieved the best passing-out results in the history of the faculty.
Local Business: Wines will be overseen, with onsite tasting every Wednesday, by Henry Butler of Butler’s Wine Cellar. His Winebox.tv show is the largest wine video site in the country and will be recorded and broadcast each week from the restaurant, with an emphasis on local growers and brands.
Local Buy-in: We’re making this a real Brighton event: Diners have been asked to contribute photos from their family albums; Kemp Town’s InRetroSpect is building a 1970’s living room on site; and beleaguered commuters are offered special deals on production of their season ticket!
Last year we were the talk of the festival. With booking already pouring in we hope to be the destination for visitors to the city, while supporting the city’s culinary as well as artistic future. With added sideburns.
