Fatto A Mano, North Laine

Fatto A Mano are far from the new kids on the block in Brighton’s food scene with their London Road and Hove branches already a firm favourite amongst pizza lovers. However a third restaurant is on the way and will be located in the heart of Brighton’s North Laine, bustling Kensington Gardens. With room for over 50 guests inside and some additional outside seating this site will be their biggest yet, and we have no doubt it will be as popular as its sisters!

El Pabellón, North Street

We have heard on the grape vine that owners of Circo are heading into the centre with another restaurant. Head chef John Reed brings us delightfully tasty Thai and Spanish fusion tapas plates at Circo and we can only hope that the menu at El Pabellón will deliver as much on flavour as the original restaurant. Aiming to open in August we are pretty confident that this new addition to the Brighton food scene will become a firm favourite.
