Opening today- the people that brought you the award-winning Coal Shed will be bringing you their sister restaurant The Salt Room. Opening on Brighton’s seafront the restaurant will celebrate Fruits of the Sea and will be focused on the finest of seafood and bringing that to the table. Raz-head shotLocated opposite the West Pier, this seaside dining retreat will have uninterrupted ocean views that can be enjoyed from the inside via its glass fronted windows and for when the temperatures rise, outside on its shaded terrace. Head chef Dave Mothersill has created a menu that offers a wide selection of sustainably sourced seafood dishes including fresh cuttlefish, oysters, lobster, seabass and their signature bouillabaisse (Provencal fish stew.) The legendary Coal Shed classic - 35 day dry aged Scottish steaks from the North Highland cooked on the Josper grill will also be making an appearance. Seasonality plays a key part in the eclectic menu ensuring regular changing dishes. The interiors will showcase natural materials such as wood and slate which reflect the shoreline and rural landscape that the restaurant overlooks and will seat 84 in the dining room, 16 at the bar and a further 55 on the terrace.logo - saltroom The restaurant is owned by Razak Helalat who opened the Coal Shed which has been an overnight success, quickly making a name for themselves as serving the best steaks in town. He has teamed up with Dariush Tamadon-Nejad, previously of Restaurants Etc Ltd (Mark Hix), to act as General Manager of both The Coal Shed and The Salt Room. The Salt Room heralds a very welcome addition to Brighton’s burgeoning food scene.  Head over to their website for further details: www.saltroom-restaurant.co.uk and check out images of their food below: thesaltroom04   thesaltroom13   thesaltroom10   thesaltroom16
