Brighton Independent Christmas Menus 2017

The social season is almost upon us. It’s nearly time to finally catch up with those friends that you’ve been meaning to see all year, to celebrate Christmas with loved ones you won’t spend the big day with and to eat as much good food as humanly possible. I, being a true Christmas fairy, want to facilitate the good food element of December as well as I possibly can. So here I am to arm you with the best Christmas menus on offer in Brighton this year. I haven’t personally tried and tested each of these menus, but I asked only my very favourite restaurants for their menus, so I can personally vouch for their ability to consistently deliver the good stuff.   ************************************************************************************* Busby and Wilds 8-9 Rock Street, Brighton, BN2 1NF 01273 696 135 ************************************************************************************* Semolina Bistro 15 Baker St, Brighton BN1 4JN 01273 697 259 My review of Semolina This menu is pre order only and is available from the 1st to the 22nd of December   ************************************************************************************* The Ginger Pig 3 …

Review | Semolina Café/Bistro

15 Baker Street, Brighton, BN1 4JN Semolina is a small, independent café/bistro on Baker Street. Baker Street sits between London Road and The Level – this, as locals will know, is not somewhere you’d typically expect to find delicious food. However, between Bangers the pie shop (get their special Christmas pie and thank me in December) and Semolina, it’s proving itself to be well worth a visit. I was drawn to Semolina last week by their set lunch menu. It changes weekly (big plus for this novelty seeker) and will set you back £12 for two courses or £15 for three. The dishes are seasonal and ingredients are sourced locally where possible, this coupled with the fact that they made it onto the top 20 restaurants in Brighton list last year makes that quite the bargain. The interior of Semolina is quite unlike its surroundings, as are the people dining within. If I couldn’t see out of the window, I would never be able to tell you that I was so close to home.

October Best 2017 | The Ginger Pig, Fatto A Mano & Fourth Church

I don’t think I’ll ever stop being nervous about writing on the topic of food that has been cooked outside of my own kitchen. My comfort zone is recipe blogging. I can talk to you ’til the cows come home about the shit that goes down in here without a care in the world, but when I sit down to tell you about food that I’ve eaten in the outside world, I freeze up a little bit. It’s a slightly different language, one that I’m not yet fluent in. However, it has to be done. Partly to yank myself out of that comfort zone, but mostly because there are some really amazing food experiences to be had in Brighton and I want to be able to tell you all about them. So, be patient with me while I try on the shoes of somebody that knows how to write about restaurant experiences..   This is the first year that October Best has been on my radar, cause I really don’t get out to restaurants all …
