New vegetarian restaurant, 1847 Brighton, to open in North Laine

9 November 2015

This November sees the opening of brand-new restaurant, 1847 Brighton, at 103 North Road. Named after the year the Vegetarian Society was formed, 1847 Brighton will specialise in high quality, locally produced vegetarian, vegan & gluten free dining within their North Laine restaurant. The basement will house a super-chic bar area, called Dandelion, serving botanically-based cocktails where clientele can have an aperitif or just drop in for a drink or two.

1847 will be the latest addition to Brighton’s thriving vegetarian restaurant scene as well as the most recent opening from the By 1847 restaurant group, started by Damien Davenport in 2011 when he opened the first site in Manchester, to critical acclaim. Openings in Birmingham and Bristol have followed. 

1847 Brighton will be offering modern dishes across four menus; á la carte, taster, Sunday lunch and express lunch. Dishes will include Beet Bourguignon; a twist on the classic made with beetroot, Merguez and mash; a puy lentil sausage, and ‘Fish’ and chips, with ginger ale battered halloumi.  The wine list has been carefully curated to not only complement the dishes, but to comprise of vegan only bottles.  A selection of champagne, spirits and beers will be available and the botanic cocktails in Dandelion have been concocted with the help of expert mixologists. 

The stylish, sixty four-cover restaurant is spread over three floors with clean and contemporary décor, featuring a live herb wall, spiral staircase and monochrome herringbone flooring. 

“Brighton has grown such a great reputation recently for brilliant restaurants, we’re delighted this cosmopolitan city is the location of our latest opening,” says Davenport. “We look forward to welcoming customers and serving them some delicious vegetarian food.”

1847 Brighton opens on November 13th on 103 North Road.  www.By1847.com
