Today I love: Harbour and Browns
What: Brace and Browns has been open on Whiteladies Road for the last seven years. They have gained a reputation for serving modern twists on classically British food, but in the form of small plate “tapas” style servings. Alongside this they have perfected the art of the Sunday Roast and grown infamous for their bottomless Prosecco brunches.
Harbour and Browns brings all of this to a small, but perfectly formed unit in the Cargo development on Wapping Wharf.
Where: Unit 13, Cargo 2, Wapping Wharf, Bristol, BS1 6ZA
Why: Sometimes a restaurant floats outside of your interest zone and never quite manages to grab your attention above all the other noise of food culture. Despite always hearing great things about Brace and Browns, I have never had the chance to go. So, when some friends suggested that we check out Harbour and Browns, I was intrigued, but didn’t know what to expect.
I shouldn’t have been worried, because each of the plates we chose was delicious. The deep fried camembert was hugely moreish and paired well with a lovely acidic burst of redcurrant and the herby garlicness of the toast. The chicken thighs were crispy, jam packed with herby flavour and were super moist. The beef was melt in the mouth, fall off the bone brilliant and I even enjoyed the Tenderstem broccoli (which is saying something!)
How Much: The dishes ranged in price from £6-12, but most were less than £10.
