Much-awaited restaurant Etch has begun taking bookings today for its opening at the end of March.
It’s British chef Steven Edwards’ first restaurant. He’s best known for winning the 6th series of MasterChef: The Professionals in 2013, but also wonSussex Young Chef of the Year in 2010. He was one of the youngest contestants to ever take the MasterChef crown, aged 26 at the time.
After eating Steven’s food, double Michelin-starred Chef Michel Roux Jr said: “His food is lovely. He makes food that is great to eat, expertly cooked, presented with a certain elegance, clean lines, and it works – fault free.”
The restaurant’s menus haven’t yet been revealed. However, diners are promised a focus on local food with menus making full use of fresh produce from in and around the Sussex countryside.
“It’s very much going to be similar to what I’ve been doing at pop-up events and will have taster menus,” Steven said.
Steven founded Etch Food as a catering company along with his friend Joseph Stanzl, who was due to open the restaurant but has since been headhunted for a job in Dubai. The ethos behind Etch is a company set up to imprint, define and impress.
