REVIEW: Fish + Liquor – Home Comforts Just Got Gourmet

Brighton, the seaside town – it only seems logical to have fish and chips as the end to a perfect Summer’s day walking along the pier and getting sand (or small pebbles, as the case may be in Brighton) caught between your toes. Now, when your hunger hits but you still want to stand out, Fish + Liquor offers a gourmet twist to the fish supper, in a new and quirky restaurant situated on Madeira Drive.

The restaurant interior hosts a comic-book theme, having vintage comic book pages as wallpaper. This acts as the perfect, laid-back setting to catch up with drinks with friends. Not only is there a extensive collection of craft beer, but a mixologist is always on site to create you a range of cocktails, away from the crowded bar scene.

Even though this may seem like a casual restaurant, the food will make you realise that this is certainly not the case. The menu centres around local and responsibly sourced fish, but upgraded versions of well known classics. Chef favourites include pea fritters and the ‘fish dog’ – a fish cake/hot dog hybrid.

Set on the seafront opposite the Big Wheel, Fish + Liquor is predicted to be a big hit. The Verse will visit the venue soon to review, and we are certain it will not disappoint.
