After 15 years of running the vegetarian restaurant Food for Friends in Brighton, Ramin and Jane Mostowfi are returning to the city, launching Kindling, an animal-based restaurant that focuses on sustainability.
Bringing another high-quality restaurant to the Lanes, Kindling Restaurant Brighton opened its doors in late 2019.
The Kindling restaurant in Brighton combines seasonal ingredients, natural surroundings, and a variety of elements to bring its menu to life. Meals that are shared and food that is healthy and good for the environment are part of the concept. An element of fire is central to the gastronomic experience, deepening the flavours of the cuisine. Ultimately, however, as a way of reclaiming the roots of community, warmth, and sustainability of the restaurant.
The Restaurant’s Interior
With high ceilings, whitewashed, tiled walls, and marble tables, this restaurant gives a good impression of space.
Kindling’s decor is minimalist and elegant, utilizing natural woods and neutral shades, evoking the sea, land, and fire themes at the restaurant.
In Kindling restaurant, food is good that’s done well, with a focus on nutritional value, visual appeal, and eco-friendly practices. A large part of the menu consists of sustainably raised meats, sustainable seafood, as well as locally grown fruit and vegetables.
At Kindling we are about seasonal British produce
Quality seasonal produce is the cornerstone of Kindling. There is a constantly changing menu, but you can expect items like succulent seafood, wild garlic and ricotta gnudi, and chickpeas and vegetables grilled to perfection.
Crispy pork skin with gribiche, for example, is one of the standout starters and bar snacks. A seasonal main course might also feature local hoggets served with salted apples, celeriac, quinces, and onions.
An open fire is also made good use of, producing dishes like ember-baked leek topped with smoked plaice; as well as grilled bass with dill and caper-flavoured dressing.
At Kindling Brighton, the menu is a la carte and changes every day based on what’s in season. The thrill of going back to a restaurant and being introduced to something new rather than sticking to what you’ve had previously is a thrilling experience.
Keeping with their emphasis on sourcing local ingredients, Kindling has created a cocktail list offering homemade versions of classic cocktails as well as locally produced spirits.
The wine list at the restaurant features a variety of wines ranging from familiar to unusual, suitable for all occasions and budgets. Among the wines available are a Japanese orange wine and a Sussex Ditchling white, both available by the glass. Among the cocktails is a powerful white negroni.
Nature writes our menu as the seasons inspire the food we cook.
