Foodie Friday - Why you'll love lunch at Grow 40 in Brighton

Sometimes it can be good to have a little processing time. A moment to reflect on somewhere new you've been to for instance.

This I feel is true for me and my introduction to Grow 40. At the time I was impressed by the three mains we ordered but I was with my sis and her little 'un and so I was a little taken up with my two treasures to really take much notice of anything else.

It was lunch time and Missie had just asked for fish and chips and the sis wanted to know where we should go. I had a think. We had just left our morning pottery painting and were ambling around the north laine area of Brighton

We crossed the road and were just about to carry on down Kensington Gardens and then I thought Grow 40 might just fit the bill.

I admit it, I had not been there before so I wasn't sure if our choice would be any good or not.

It certainly looked a nice place to stop for a while. The interior is spot on trend, lots of wood, natural light, a long amply stocked bar and the now omnipresent Edison bulbs were all in attendance.

We sat down by the window and started to check out the menu.



Their philosophy is to support local, independent produce and offer a little homegrown too. So far so good but still no food.

Our meals arrived and the food smelt and looked delicious. I'd ordered an omelette with ham and old Winchester cheese, my sis an open sandwich salmon ceviche with dill creme fraiche and homegrown watercress. Little miss had a full size plate of fish and chips and to accompany we had two glasses of red wine.

Each dish tasted fresh and full of flavour, the portion sizes were just right, the service polite and efficient and the location great.

I rarely get to see my ultra-busy London sis and adored niece so the meal was definitely secondary to the scraps of conversation we were having and yet as each dish delighted, the food became part of our lovely day out.

Apparently there's an upstairs...I feel this place could do with a re-visit. You know, check out the desserts, the balcony, cocktails, that sort of thing.

Our bill came to £37 for three mains and two glasses of wine, which seemed a very good exchange for a delightful lunchtime meal.
