Burnt Orange to open in Brighton
Black Rock Restaurants Group’s latest venture looks to blur the line between restaurants and bars.
Restaurateur Razak Helalat is opening a new all-day and late-night hangout concept billed to bridge the gap between bar and restaurant.
Opening in Brighton in early June, Burnt Orange will offer a selection of larger plates cooked over open fire, such as Shawarma Pork Belly, Date Molasses, Pickled Fennel Salad, Charcoal-Roasted Octopus, Harissa Butter and Pine Nuts.
The venue itself offers 54 covers inside, alongside a courtyard with 28 covers and a private dining room seating for 10 guests. A specially curated music programme from DJ Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) will also be part of the experience.
“Over the past couple of years, I’ve had countless conversations with friends and loyal customers about the need for a totally new space. Something different - not quite a restaurant, not quite a bar - but somewhere that combines great food and amazing drinks with the right music. It’s somewhere you can catch up with friends, hang-out and just have fun! Our vision for Burnt Orange is just that, “Right Here, Right Now” and we can’t wait to open our doors this summer,” Helalat said in a media release.
Helalat’s Black Rock Restaurants Group is currently composed of The Salt Room and the duo of The Coal Shed restaurants.
