A NEW restaurant has opened offering an all-day dining experience.

Cyan, which has replaced GB1 at The Grand Brighton, launched tonight.

With a big emphasis on local produce, Cyan aims to use sustainable ingredients for its small plates and sharing platters.

Suppliers such as Great British Charcuterie, B&N Fish and Trenchmore Farm are on board.

Cyan’s sustainability interest is also reflected in the restaurant design with bespoke marbled artwork and items made from recycled plastic waste by local artists Weez & Merl.

The restaurant’s food and drink menu is inspired by culture, heritage and travel.

Joining the award-winning team is head chef, Kirk Johnson. Kirk, has over 30 years’ experience working in country house hotels and even Royal Ascot and has trained under the watchful eye of MBE Michael Caines.

He said: “The restaurant seats 80, and with 15 to 20 ever changing dishes we certainly have an exciting challenge on our hands, but we’re looking forward to keeping things interesting for our diners with a variety of options for meat eaters, pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans.”

While the restaurant has had a contemporary redesign some aspects which made GB1 unique have remained.

The 155-year old marble columns are still a central point and continue to be surrounded by a circular bar.

However, the bar has been reworked to provide an area for remote workers to settle down in during the day and for groups of friends to be entertained with an interactive dining experience by night.

Pedro Watson, restaurant manager at Cyan, added: “We are extremely excited to launch Cyan at The Grand Brighton and believe it will breathe a fresh lease of life into Brighton’s dining offering.

“We want people to feel comfortable and relaxed, whether they are grabbing brunch, wanting a place to work with a coffee or a fun and vibrant atmosphere to share dinner and an organic glass of wine with friends.

“We’re also bringing theatre to the dinner table with interactive dining experiences, live cooking with our chefs and a flair to drinks with our specially designed micro-herb refrigerator ready for any finishing touches.”
