Cooking with Passion

Helming the kitchen at Harbourside Grill is executive chef Armand Sablon. Born and raised in Brighton by British and French parents, Sablon was exposed to the culinary arts from a young age, helping his mother in the kitchen to prepare traditional family fare, and inspired by his grandfather, who was a baker in France.

Contemporary Cuisine with French Flare

At Harbourside Grill, chef Sablon presents a grill-centric menu laced with French finesse. Key to the restaurant’s menus are the finest cuts of meat, cooked in a Spanish Josper Grill, a specialist oven that achieves extremely high temperatures, forming an instantaneous crust around the meat while trapping in natural juices to enrich the flavour.

The restaurant’s beef range includes U.S.D.A certified premium ribeye from Creekstone Farms and sirloin from Snake River Farms, as well as Argentinian sirloin and Japanese A5 Wagyu sirloin from Kagoshima. Other cuts include dry-aged fillets, T-bones, and Cote de Boeuf, while quality beef will also be presented as steak tartare, prepared tableside, and Angus beef carpaccio with aged parmesan and rocket, dressed with truffle aioli.
