In London, there’s a Browns for fashion, and a Brown’s Hotel, but Browns the spacious brasserie is the Browns you can afford. Installed in the former Westminster County Courts, this high-quality, Brighton-based English chain serves updated English food and imported beer. The globe lanterns, enormous mirrors, and staff buttoned into crisp white oxford shirts impart the sense of a Gilded Age chophouse. Expect lots of indulgently hearty dishes such as fish pie in cream and white wine sauce; steak, mushroom and Guinness pie; a house salad with beets, quinoa, pumpkin seeds, artichoke hearts and more; or a nice fat wild boar and chorizo burger. British tradition—starchy but welcoming to casual tourists—is the main product here.
