Chow Tour of Brighton
Lately I keep hearing about new food venues in Brighton. A friend and I are planning a food scouting afternoon and would love to hear about stops you think we should make.
We have started with Brighton Fish Market and Brighton Gourmet and Cellar on our list.
What would you add for anyone who wants to explore the food scene in this area?
Imperial Pizza (329 Washington street) makes one of the best Sicillian pizzas around. The pizzaolo that works during the day, with the glasses, is very good.
No more than two toppings, order it well done and for 15USD you and three friends are full.
Ignore their regular pizza, it is unremarkable.
Across the street, is Mandy and Joes, one of the last old school counter places that used to be everywhere. Fish cakes and beans, Liverwurst sandwich, sardine plate, breakfast all day and all the usual diner fare. They close at 4pm.
Have coffe at Fuel next to Brighton Fish - either eat lunch or pick up some of the best Greek food in town at Esperia particularly their fabulous tzatziki and taramsalata and anything lamb. Get almond wedding cookies at Athans along with a pot of cherry rooibos tea in Brighton Center. Have breakfast at Mandy and Joes or if it's the weekend have brunch at Devlin's patio. That's for a start. (with due respect to pinehurst, Eagle's Deli is not in Brighton and not worth a stop).
Darbar on North Beacon for Pakistani (goat haleem and brains), apple fritter from Mirror Cafe, Asahi Sushi a small place on Market near Washington that feels like Japan, Jasmine Bistro.
