Brighton’s Best Restaurants – a set of awards that celebrates local independent restaurants, has revealed the details of its first OctoberBEST dining festival.
Last year’s winning restaurants will be offering special £20 menus throughout the duration of the festival, which runs between 17 – 30 October.
Confirmed £20 offers include: 64 Degrees, which will offer two courses and a rum bear with ice cream, plus a glass of wine or beer; a tasting menu at Moshimo, which is usually £32.50; and two courses from the set menu with poppadums and wine at Curry Leaf Café.
Flank, the Salt Room, Terre a Terre, the Coal Shed, Riddle & Finns, 24 St Georges, Plateau and Semolina are offering two courses for £20, while the Set restaurant, Ginger Pig and Silo are encouraging diners to choose three, with Ginger Man offering four.
OctoberBEST aims to build on the work that Brighton’s Best Restaurants has already done in drawing national attention to the city’s culinary offerings.
Co-founder of Brighton’s Best Restaurants, Andy Lynes, said: “The restaurant scene in Brighton has really flowered over the last two years and there has never been so much quality and diversity as there is now.
“We believe that Brighton is on at least an equal footing with Britain’s other leading provincial restaurant cities such as Bristol, Manchester and Edinburgh. OctoberBEST’s great value menus are the perfect way to explore as much as possible of what the city has to offer without breaking the bank.”
OctoberBEST will pave the way for the second annual Brighton’s Best Restaurants award ceremony which will be held in February 2017.
The restaurants are voted for by local critics, food writers, chefs, restaurateurs and business leaders.
