Why we love it

From the same stable as lauded local steak-sizzlers The Coal Shed comes this glamorous fish-focussed corner spot. Wisely ditching the chi-chi fussiness you’d expect from a former seafront hotel bar, exposed brick and pricey looking bronze lamps set the elegantly sparse contemporary tone. Get a seat on the right side of the room and gaze out at the West Pier or, according to taste, i360. It ain’t cheap, with many dishes intriguingly (not to say coyly) billed as yours for ‘market price’. But you know it’s authentic, and magisterially well cooked. Wines are nicely curated; for a sense of the cocktail offering observe half a dozen variations on a gin and tonic. Show off your class to that special someone.

Highlights

Three ‘pre-theatre’ courses for £20 is amazing value
Today’s raw fish selection
Coal-roasted octopus, nduja, almond, dill and cucumber
