Deciding which is the best restaurant in Brighton, Hove and wider Sussex is really a difficult job and a process which can only be decided by the individual really. You have Trip Advisor, Top Table, Brighton Foodie Awards, Proud Restaurants, Brighton Visitor, Visit Brighton and many more companies and organisations that can lend you a hand here locally – but often it does get a little bit cloudy. In addition to this you have national food critic experts like Jay Raynor (The Observer, The Guardian) and Giles Coren (The Times); these gents have had many Brighton restaurants under scrutiny over the years.
One of Brighton’s resident experts is Mr Andrew Kaye who works for the Latest Homes magazine and he specialises in food and has been doing so for many years. Among the Brighton residents in the know, his opinion does count and then we are all also influenced by the rest of the hype going on in the city.
Best restaurants are usually the restaurants who can shout the loudest, they have the best PR exposure, they are national chains or groups of restaurants who have the right contacts to get the message out to the consumers. One thing will be for sure though, they are shouting about their product because they believe in it, so they must be doing something right.
The Brighton Foodie Awards
Each year the Brighton Foodie Awards allow the general public to register their votes for Brighton’s top restaurants, food shops, cafes and here are the winners from 2012. So this goes some way in terms of quantifying what is a best restaurant and what is not – it depends on your criteria. For example what a businessman enjoys at a restaurant will be completely different to what mum, dad and the kids want. The Brighton Foodie Awards has definitely gone some way in helping to judge who is top and who is not. Majority opinion does count to a large extent and and what the ‘Brighton Foodie Awards’ achieve each year (with thousands and thousands of voters) ; this does help put this matter to rest a little bit.
