L’Atelier Du Vin, North Laine

The older sister of Kensington Gardens well loved restaurant Grow 40 has arrived! Opened in the gorgeous space above Grow 40, the exposed brickwork and mismatched furniture gives L’Atelier Du Vin real character. Meaning “artist’s studio of wine” co-owners Steve and Dimitri have constructed a wine list of over 500 bottles and created a classically inspired drinks and cocktail menu inspired by their vast collection of spirits. Food is however by no means an afterthought as on the french inspired menu you can choose from a delicious selection of cheeses and charcuterie or indulge in a perfectly cooked local steak from Trenchmore Farm in West Sussex.

The Bok Shop, The Lanes, Brighton

Until now the guilty pleasure of fried chicken has left Brighton diners at the mercy of large multinational chain restaurants or the sort of late night shop you’ll still be tasting in the morning. Filling the gap is the stylish new Bok Shop centrally located on East Street, The Lanes. Owners Jamie, Howard and Matthew have spent months developing a menu that showcases quality fried chicken with gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan alternatives as well as a host of traditional sides with a twist that puts them a class above. Open from 12 noon until 11pm, seven days a week you’ll have plenty of time to get your chicken fix.

Manju’s, Trafalgar Street, North Laines

Many people have a dream to open their own restaurant. Manju’s is the realisation of one such dream. Manju’s dream to open a restaurant was put on hold when she was exiled from her home country of Uganda in 1972. With the help of her step-daughter, this dream has now been realised, and Manju finally has her restaurant at the age of 80. They serve home-cooked traditional Gujarati cuisine. The food is vegetarian and follows recipes handed down through generations. Using the finest local ingredients and traditional methods, the menu is a celebration of traditional Gujarat cooking.
