The Restaurant at Seattle and Bar at Seattle enjoys one of the finest, if not the finest, setting for an eatery in Brighton. The stunning room, with hardwood floors, curtains hanging from the walls and a couple of tall elegant white leather banquets, is luminous and airy and is dotted with impeccably laid white-topped tables surrounded by deep 1970s style armchairs. There are two rows of tables the other side of a dividing wall right next to the floor-to-ceiling windows with a view on to the marina, while there is also the possibility of sitting outside on the decked terrace. Breakfast, served between 7am and 10am (8am and 10.30am on the weekend) consists of either a continental offering of jot drinks, juices, pastries, fruit, meats and cheeses, or a cooked option with full English or eggs the way you like. The lunch and dinner menu is identical which is no bad thing as it means your evening meal will be every bit as delicious as your daytime repast. Chef David Edward who has trained with the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and Gary Rhodes will seduce you every bit as much as did our delightful Geordie waitress with the way in which he uses the locally sourced ingredients. Some highlights of the menu, which does change every so often, include the scallops to start, the Seattle Fish pie for mains and the apple and pear crumble to finish. However it's the bangers and mash which are at the centre of the menu with 80 varieties of sausage available from the Brighton Sausage Company. For kids there is a simple menu on which all items are only £2.50 and the wine list features a relatively wide range of wines from around the world, chosen with as much care as the dishes' ingredients. The separate bar area, where every cluster of seating has a different chair and table, is decorated with black and white images of The Beatles as well as a few stylised shots of Jimi Hendrix. Dotted around the room are some funky lamps but none funkier than the atom-like chandelier on the ceiling. This is the place to come for snacks and nibbles throughout the day (including a quick breakfast) and for some of the best cocktails in town made by award-winning barmen. Easily one of the best restaurant/bar destinations in Brighton.
