Food, Days Out and Travel stories from Brighton, London and the Rest of the World


Fun fine dining for music lovers in Kooks, the North Laine's boho bistro

Feed me shots of Toblerone and play me tunes that I love such as Alt-J and I'll keep coming back for more.

That's how I felt after a night of fabulous food artfully presented and normally to be found in the kind of establishment that uses white tablecloths as a mark of fine dining.

Inside, Kooks, the restaurant steers clear of such markers and instead makes a very different type of statement. This time about another great passion of mine (and many others), dance music.



Top place for breakfast and brunch at Bill's in Brighton

This place is so well known in Brighton as the go-to place for breakfast and brunch that I've never written about it.

So look away now if you feel I'm being a bit retro with today's food offering.

However, if you are new to Brighton or Bill's, (they've now got more than 60 restaurants across Great Britain to try out), then this might highlight a place worth visiting.

Going to Bill's is part experience dining as well as part delicious food, the interior is full of colourful produce to purchase, chalk boards of information, crammed with tables and normally of people too. All of this adds to the enjoyment of eating there.

Exciting foodie news, in just a few days time, 5th August, a new Italian restaurant, cafe and shop will be opening on the famous East Street (the street where the fight scene from Quadrophenia took place).

Already a popular spot for successful restaurants, East Street is home to both the award winning Indian Summer and Terre a Terre.
