Wood-Fire Restaurant “Embers” to open in Brighton this April

From two of Brighton’s most lauded chefs, Dave Marrow and Isaac Bartlett-Copeland

This April will see Brighton chefs Dave Marrow and Isaac Bartlett-Copeland (Chef Patron, Isaac At) come together to open Embers – a new restaurant celebrating Sussex produce, cooked over burning wood-fire, alongside innovative cocktails – in Brighton’s historic Lanes. Opening on April 3rd, Embers will be the first joint venture from long-term friends Marrow and Bartlett-Copeland, who first met fifteen years ago as mentor and mentee in Bartlett-Copeland’s first kitchen role at The Grand Hotel in Brighton.

Embers’s menu will be focused on creating bold flavours from locally grown ingredients, cooked entirely on a medieval wood-fire cage positioned over smouldering embers in the heart of the restaurant. Having cooked in some of Brighton’s most well-respected dining establishments including Terre à Terre and Isaac At, both chefs will bring their classical training into a totally new setting, as they turn to a feudal cooking style that is stripped-back and accessible. The succinct menu will see elements of every dish cooked entirely over local, kiln-dried ash and birch wood, veering away from gas and electricity altogether.

With Marrow heading up the kitchen, guests can expect a range of playful yet thoughtfully crafted snacks, small plates and centrepiece dishes that will sit alongside a concise selection of unique desserts. Dishes will be served sharing-style to encourage a relaxed and convivial atmosphere, drawing inspiration from Embers’s ancestral cooking ethos.

Of the opening, Isaac Bartlett-Copeland said:

“It’s always been our dream to open a restaurant together and I’m so excited that this dream has finally been realised. We want Embers to be about big, bold flavours and the sort of restaurant we’d want to go to on our days off – it’s all about fire and friendship!’
