Whilst my favourite restaurant in Brighton is undoubtedly Chef Michael Bremner’s small plate restaurant, 64°, the beachfront location of his second venue, adjacent to the West Pier, makes it another top tip of where to eat on the south coast.
Whilst Murmurare at pains to point out that they are not a seafood restaurant, for someone who, lives inland like me, there’s something irresistible about the prospect of dining al fresco on a sunny day, with a backdrop of sea views and the sound of crashing waves, whilst eating expertly cooked and prepared seafood.
