1st place

Terre a Terre continues to be the vanguard of vegetarian restaurants in Brighton, achieving first place in the BRAVO Plant Champions category for a second year. A pioneer in the trend for plant-based dining, Terre a Terre continues to amaze even the most die-hard carnivore with their creative finesse.

2nd place

Opening her restaurant was the six-decade-long ambition of 82-year-old Manju who still runs the kitchen in her eponymously named restaurant on Trafalgar Street. If the backstory alone wasn’t enough to earn a place in your heart then the home cooked vegetarian cuisine was. Either way, your vote goes to show it’s never too late to chase a dream.

3rd place

Food For Friends has been serving Brighton and Hove since 1981 with many of Brighton’s most skilled chefs passing through the kitchen. For nearly forty years it’s been creating contemporary vegetarian cuisine and raking in accolades, including a top three in this year’s BRAVOs, a testament to the vivifying power of plants.
