Call Cin Cin Brighton to make a booking on:
There’s barely room to swing a leg of Parma ham in this cute Italian restaurant, which seats just 18 diners at a U-shaped counter around an open kitchen and bar. Owner David Toscano is here most nights (and days), pouring bracing Negronis accompanied by fat glossy-green olives and duvet-like focaccia. Meanwhile, the one-man kitchen sends out a succession of small plates bursting with flavour. Expect nibbles and small plates including Jersey royals with salsa verde and egg-yolk jam or soused mackerel with rhubarb ‘di mostarda’, although most people head straight for the silky handmade pastas (pea and ricotta panzotti with confit trout, for example). Also, don’t miss the sharing boards of superb Italian cheeses and salumi, but do save space for the blood-orange and Campari carpaccio with white chocolate. Cin Cin is a great venue for people-watching, whether that’s ogling fellow diners at the counter or simply admiring the ballet of chef, barman and owner working together in the tiny kitchen – “I love the one-on-one service”, notes a fan.
