Brains Behind Browns Back in Brighton
In 1806 the imposing building on the corner of New Road and North Street was the Homer Herring Millinery and Mantle Store but now it is set to become the Italian inspired Quod Restaurant and Bar.
It had a colonnade that ran from the corner of Bond Street right round to the Theatre Royal which was a notorious haunt for prostitutes. Most of the colonnade was demolished decades ago but a large part has been reinstated as part of the development of the site. Quod is due to open in early April almost 30 years to the day after joint owner Jeremy Mogford opened the first Browns restaurant in Brighton.
The refurbishment of this important site which will include limestone floors, 130 covers at solid oak tables, a 60-seat zinc topped bar and an integrated art gallery is further testament to the continuing confidence that investors have in Brighton. The upper parts will be residential helping to fulfil an increasing demand for city centre living space.
