Happy New Year everybody. Sorry you’ve not heard from me for a while. I’ve rather fallen asleep at the wheel I’m afraid. The sad demise of the print version of Great Food has led to me being a little out of the loop and I’ve not been eating out much – just a regular early January visit to Kayal but you all know that is fantastic anyway (one tip though – if you see the Squid Pepper Fry on the specials board, order it!).
But interesting news for the new year is that the highly-regarded Firenze in Kibworth has rebranded itself as the Lighthouse and become a specialist fish restaurant. It’s still run by Sarah and Lino Poli who call it “a seafood restaurant and more ” and promise both British and Mediterranean classics from potted shrimp and fish and chips to lobster. They also say they will offer plenty for meat eaters and vegetarians.
Haven’t seen a full menu yet but I wish them all the best – if anyone fancies a trip out there, let me know
