Brighton is one of my favourite places to visit for a weekend away. With the wide array of shops including the Laines, the selection of bars and the restaurants, there really is something for everybody in the town.
We’ll regularly go for a weekend away in Brighton and when there, I have two favourite places to eat; Donatello and Browns. Not only does Browns offer delicious food but it has an amazing cocktail menu too and a lovely interior design.
When we first visited Browns, we started in the bar next to it first to enjoy some pre-dinner cocktails and get us ready for the meal and night ahead. After making our way through the cocktail menu, I found my favourite, the British Royal. British Royal is made up of Black Cow vodka, Prosecco, rhubarb & rosehip cordial, apple and with vodka and Prosecco being my favourite drinks, I had a feeling this would be my favourite before I’d even tried it. I loved this cocktail so much that for months after we first visited, we spent ages trying to hunt down a rhubarb & rosehip cordial so that we could recreate this cocktail at home.
Now, on to the food…I love steak and will often order it when we’re out for dinner at a nice restaurant. So of course, I decided to go for the 8oz Sirloin steak with garlic butter and thick cut chips. I ordered the steak medium/well and it was truly cooked to perfection and the steak itself was amazing quality too. I love crispy chips which can often be hard to achieve with a chunky chip so I was seriously impressed that Browns had achieved the perfect balance of a crispy, fluffy chip.
For dessert, I would usually go for something chocolatey like a brownie. However, I decided to go for the salted caramel profiteroles with vanilla ice cream as I fancied something different. Coated in a chocolately salted caramel and filled with delicious cream inside, every part of this dessert was heaven. Oh my goodness…they were amazing!
