Set in the heart of Regency Brunswick, Hove, two-AA-rosette-awarded Graze Restaurant offers modern British à la carte alongside their flagship sevencourse seasonal and vegetarian tasting menus. Head chef Gethin Jones, who trained under celebrity chef Jun Tanaka at Pearl, artfully combines fresh and intense flavours to create seasonally based menus that are written around locally sourced, organic and free-range produce. Start with crab salad, apple, apple jelly, rocket Vichyssoise and sweet coconut foam. Then opt for glazed leg of rabbit stuffed with peppers and chorizo and served with baby carrots, creamed potato, wild garlic and ravioli of braised leg. Finish with melon mousse, confit pine nuts and cucumber sorbet. The lavish Brighton Pavilion-inspired interior gives a modern, decadent edge yet manages to achieve a genuine homely feel; guests are made to feel even more welcome by the attentive, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The opulent theme continues into The Regency Room offering patrons the ultimate private dining experience. Here, parties large and small can celebrate any occasion in style - the room is also an ideal size for business functions, wine tastings and more.
