Published On September 2, 2014 | By Tabl .com | Food & Drink Features

We Love Brighton in partnership with Tabl.com bring you a monthly round-up of the best pop up restaurants Brighton has to offer!

Well it’s all around the world in Brighton this month as we explore some unique pop-up dining experiences this September. We’re spoilt for choice with Italian, Ethiopian or Thai-Chinese dining experiences in this month’s round-up of the top pop ups!

Pop–Up Restaurants BrightonCin Cin’s Italian Autumn Feast

You might have seen a vintage 1972 Fiat van dishing out decadence in the form of Prosecco and proper authentic antipasti at events and festivals across London and the South over the last couple of summers. That van’ll be ‘Cin Cin’ (pronounced ‘chin chin’, old boy – ‘Cheers!’ in Italian). And dishing out the bubbles and nibbles will have been the ever-dapper David T, whose mission it is to remind people that real Italian food is so very much more than the local pizza-and-pasta factory.

David’s embarking on his journey to fulfil his ultimate ambition (of opening the best Italian restaurant in Brighton) with this unique pop-up event at the Velo cafe in Brighton. And a look at the menu makes you realise that it’s not just a pipe-dream. This is high-quality, creative Italian cuisine designed and prepared with real passion and skill.

David’s been working with classically-trained Jamie Halsall who brings a wealth of experience from top London restaurants including The Dorchester, Launceston Place and Roux at Parliament Square. Partnering with Birra Moretti for this special event who’ll be providing their original lager as well as their double malt speciality, and pairing wines with the menu available by the glass as you go, the event makes sure everything is covered to make the food experience as special as possible. Fantastico!

Location: Velo Cafe on the Level
Date & Time: Thursday 11th September, 7:30pm

Pop–Up Restaurants BrightonAbycina’s Night of Ethiopian/Eritrean Cuisine at The Marwood

Uncompromisingly eclectic purveyors of kick-arse coffee, The Marwood cafe in central Brighton have been hosting some pretty special events recently – free live music, comedy nights, drag bingo… Great to see some foodie pop-ups appearing at this Brighton gem, the latest of which is a celebration of Northeast-African cuisine featuring gorgeous dishes from the gorgeous Cina C who takes the food and culture of her East African heritage very seriously.

The flavours on the table and the decor of the evening are rich, colourful and vibrant – Cina’s authentic recipes don’t hold back on the spice, using traditional blends to create mouth-watering dishes. Guests are treated to platters of flavoursome dishes served with injeratraditional soured flatbread made from Teff flour. There’s even Ethiopian beer available on the night.

The first event’s looking to be a quick sell-out but we’re hoping to see a lot more of Abycina popping-up around town so keep checking to get on the guest list for one of her events.

Location: Upstairs @The Marwood
Date & Time: Thursday 4th September, 7:30pm
Price Range: £27
