If you’re like us, you’ll feel that Father’s Day is more than a standard card-in-the-post national holiday; an occasion that deserves some bells and whistles. As the old saying goes: the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so to celebrate this occasion in the height of summer (fingers crossed for beer-garden weather) we’ve rustled up a list of our top Brighton steakhouses to meat and greet your pa this week.
The star of The Nevill menu in Hove has got to be its black hot rock grill, with a variety of meaty choices to chew over – from classic 8oz sirloin and 10z ribeyes to its mixed grill and a rack of tender lamb. A real feast for the eyes!
Find it: 214 Nevill Rd, BN3 7QQ
The Old Bank Steaks & Ribs Restaurant does exactly what it says on the tin. Glistening, glazed, or just plain ol’ sliced, meats inside this former bank won’t disappoint – and neither will its location in the heart of eclectic Kemptown.
Find it: 120 St George’s Road, Kemptown Village, BN2 1EA
Crank up the heat with a 600-degree hot rock at La Tana: a friendly, family owned Italian hangout in the heart of Patcham. It may be out of the way if you’re used to living it up along the coast, but trust us, take the trek into pastures new!
Find it: 47 Ladies’ Mile Rd Brighton, BN1 8TA
We’re over to Hove again to shout about the Latinoamerica parrilla: aka the grill! As the first Argentine restaurant in East Sussex, Latinoamerica has certainly made its mark with its grass-fed beef from Las Pampas and bucket loads of passion supplied by owner and Buenos Aires native Damian. While you’re there, check out its wine list, particularly its fruity, smoky Malbec specials.
Find it: 36 Church Road, Hove BN3 2FN
Next up on our list is a Brighton staple just off busy West Street. Named as one of the best restaurants in the UK by the prestigious Observer Food Monthly awards, the Coal Shed is famed for its grilled meats, and unique flavour combinations. We’re always impressed with whatever this restaurant serves up – we could taco about it all day!
Find it: 8 Boyces Street, Brighton, BN1 1AN
