Gingerman Restaurant Group’s Glamorous New Dining Concept Opens Next Week
Brighton’s renowned Gingerman Restaurant Group will open their eagerly anticipated new restaurant concept, The Flint House, in the heart of Brighton Lanes next week.
Ginger Chef Ben McKellar and wife and business partner Pamela McKellar have been working with architect Morgan Carn and developer Redevco on the design of the beautiful two-storey flint clad building within the newly developed Hanningtons Estate. The Flint House will be a 50-cover restaurant featuring a full-length kitchen bar for counter-style dining, a first-floor cocktail bar and rooftop terrace, adjacent to a beautiful new green wall and overlooking Brighton’s newest Lane.
Other local architects, Landivar, have helped create a fashionable, high-end interior finish for the restaurant and bar, which will feature a colour palette of greens, greys and charcoals, fabrics from House of Hackney, lighting from Belgian company Wever & Ducre and creative plant design from Go Botanica.
A modern, bright and airy space filled with green plants during the day and candles and soft lighting in the evening, The Flint House will present a different concept, in both food and style, to the Ginger Groups other flourishing sites. As Ben and Pamela describe;
“We’ll have the same great suppliers, but a different style of dining, with small plates, beautiful wines by the glass and cocktails made upstairs in the bar area. We want to create the perfect place for food, drinks and a get-together with friends – we’re very much hoping to make this a glamorous space to eat and drink in the heart of the town.”
An elegantly inspired menu of snacks and small plates designed to share will include: Sweet & sour aubergine, basil, ricotta, pickled chilli on toast; Chicken thighs, sweet potato, chipotle; Slow roast lamb belly, green sauce, anchovy; Whole grilled prawn, saffron mayo; and Miso mackerel, fennel, pomegranate.
