RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

PALM COURT
BRIGHTON, ENGLAND

Ask Londoners about Brighton and you'll get a mixed reaction.  Many told us it wasn't worth the train ride but we decided to check it out and found it to be a most interesting place.

Brighton sits right on the English Channel and on a nice, sunny day it's a great place to visit.  One of the focal spots in town is Brighton Palace Pier. 

The pier was built in the 1800s and attracts more than two million visitors each year making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of Britain.

The main sit-down restaurant on the pier is called the Palm Court and their speciality (European term) is fish and chips.

It's pretty standard fare.  A decent portion of golden fried plaice (a flounder like fish from the North Sea) with mandatory chips and mushy peas.  The peas are a traditional accompaniment to fish and chips and all they are is green peas all mashed up.  They're tasty.

Service was surprisingly fast at this restaurant over the water and our server couldn't have been any nicer.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of the pier while you're there.  They've got a gaming center for the kids, various crystal and other shops, bars and carry-out food joints.  They even have a little radio station there!
