Steven Edwards, winner of MasterChef: The Professionals 2013, is to launch Etch on 216 Church Road in Brighton on 24 March.
The 2000sq ft, 36-cover restaurant will use fresh produce from local suppliers and offer three tasting menus - four courses (£40), five courses (£50) and eight courses (£60), which will change weekly to reflect the seasons.
Sample dishes include: pea and wild garlic; asparagus and duck egg; scallop and spring onion; lamb and broccoli; and coffee and goats milk.
It will house a dining room seating eight covers.
Edwards has experience working with some of the country's top chefs including Raymond Blanc and Chris Wheeler, before moving on to the five-star South Lodge Hotel in Sussex, where he won Sussex Young Chef of the Year in 2010.
Steven Edwards, owner and head chef of Etch said: "The opening of Etch. is a very proud moment for me. It has been my goal since the early days of my career and I am grateful to everyone who has helped me along the way. In Brighton, I have found the perfect location - the local produce available here is outstanding, I've loved getting to know the suppliers and it is their quality ingredients that are going to be inspiring my tasting menus week after week. I just can't wait to open those doors and share etch. with the public now."
Etch will be open Wednesday - Saturday for dinner and lunch on Saturdays only.
