Carte Blanche


Nestling in the bustling South Lanes, Carte Blanche brings a little French flare to Brighton's Riviera. This charming eatery knows how to feed and water you in style; offering authentic French classics with a just a twist of Asian flavours as well as own craft beers and a wine bar. 

Split into two distinct sections; the wine bar is all exposed brick and rustic cool, whilst the dining area is plushly intimate. Having these two areas means Carte Blanche is equally perfect for casual coffees, after work drinks and long boozy dinners. The ethos behind the food of fusing tradition with innovation has clearly informed the décor. Think luxurious textures up against raw wood and brick. Described in two words: Understated panache. 

This delightful establishment is giving you a la carte blanche to stuff yourself on delicious wee morsels and hefty platefuls alike. Get your hors d'oeuvre on with some pan fried scallops, crispy belly of pork, cauliflower puree and salt baked pineapple for £8. You must try their signature take on the mojito, a Blanchito, of which they serve a variety. Amp up the fusion with steamed fillet of cod on a bed of stir fried vegetables, citrus glass noodle and a ginger chilli and coriander dressing for £16. It's pudding time! Try the lemon grass and ginger crème brulée for £5 or the chocolate fondant with absinthe ice cream for £6. Delish.
