The BRAVOS 2019

It’s that time of year again when the BRAVOS (Brighton Restaurant Awards Vote Online) return and are open for votes. 2019 is the third year for the popular awards cast by members of the public. It’s your chance to vote for your favorite eateries and give them the praise they deserve.

Sussex houses well-known known chain restaurants as well some local colour which the BRAVOS mainly focus on. They look at what makes the Brighton & Sussex food scene great, the local produce & local talent.

I love the idea behind the public getting to vote for different categories and supporting the smaller restaurants and pubs which are important to our economy.

Last Years Awards

“In 2018 27,053 votes were cast as members of the public gave BRAVOs to over 400 Sussex-wide venues and across 16 categories, establishing the competition as a central part of the local food and drink events calendar”.

My friends at BeFries picked up an award last year and have been smashing it since they opened. They’re still relatively new on the culinary scene here in Brighton but have gone from strength to strength. This city and I love them!

“During the awards we tried to create fun and engaging posts on our social media to really boost votes and let everyone know that we would appreciate the public vote”.

The awards are now an important part of Sussex and help give businesses credibility and a wider client base. They allow smaller eateries the chance to show what they’re made of and earn a place on the culinary map with venues that have celebrity chefs.

We won the award after only being open for eight months, so it helped to put us on Brighton’s food and drink map.

New Categories In 2019

This year sees the launch of some new award categories too, I’m particularly excited about the introduction of the “Sustainable Eats” category. This is in direct response to the ever-changing food scene and the huge success of veganism which is ever present in Brighton.

The other category which has been introduced this year is “Best International”which is also open to food stalls and pop-ups, opening it up to less known businesses who still serve great international food!

Sussex houses some of the best Italian and Asian restaurants so it’s great that there’s a category to recognise the culinary diversity we have here.

It’s really about how food can bring us together. How a great international restaurant can welcome us into their culture, or provide a taste of home.

Better Prizes And Website In 2019

At the close of the BRAVOs it won’t just be venues winning, every member of the public who votes has the opportunity to win prizes up to £200, and every vote counts so the more a person votes, the more chance they have of winning.

Throughout the BRAVOs prizes for voting will be given away via online competitions. Prizes from sponsors include Laurent Perrier Champagne and charcuterie hampers from The Great British Charcuterie, amongst others.
