At TEN Restaurant Brighton
At TEN Brighton is a new restaurant from local chef Phil Bartley (Hove Place, Taste Sussex, Cases, Curds and Whey). Situated at 111 Church Street, the restaurant looks out onto the iconic Brighton Corn Exchange in the North Laine.
At TEN serves seasonally led small plates and cheese and charcuterie from The Great British Charcuterie. Their extensive wine menu is created by sommelier Steve Pineau (L’Atelier du Vin) and features a broad range of wines to suit all tastes and budgets.
Inside At TEN
Set over two floors, At TEN Brighton is a welcoming space with moss green walls, deep luxurious chairs and tables decked with quality tableware. On entering you instantly know this is a place invested in the integrity of everything from the setting through to the menu.
Outside there is some street-side seating which catches plenty of sun. It’s a perfect place to stop for some wine and nibbles while taking in the sights of the cosmopolitan North Laine. Or before a visit to the nearby Corn Exchange or Theatre Royal.
The small plates menu
The small plates menu is seasonally led and changes frequently. Each dish tantalizingly leads with one key ingredient which is creatively finessed.
Although the menu is forever changing, examples might include lamb with fig, ewe’s curd, celeriac and mushroom, mackerel with a shellfish broth and vegetable and chilli salad. For vegetarians, there are dishes such as carrot with broad bean houmous, salted ricotta and mint. Dishes are designed for sharing with four or five plates per couple giving an ample opportunity to experience a variety of flavours.
The menu also boasts a strong selection of cheese and charcuterie all from the finest artisanal producers in the UK. Here you’ll find award-winning meats from the likes of Beal’s Farm, just outside of Lewes and renowned Brighton Blue cheese from High Weald Dairy in West Sussex. These are all excellently complimented by the wine menu and the servers are on hand to make any pairing recommendations you may need.
