GOOD BROTHERS EDINBURGH

Good Brothers Edinburgh, our review for Olive magazine…

Good Brothers Edinburgh,  founded by Graeme and Rory Sutherland, is bringing the natural wine movement to Stockbridge, Edinburgh alongside some outstanding Scottish cuisine. Yes, it’s all about the wine (there’s over 100 of them on the ever-rotating list) but that doesn’t overshadow the fantastic food.

SMWS Queen Street exterior
Date night….it doesn’t happen very often so when it does you’ve got to make the most of it… Both partial to a tasting menu (with accompanying drinks natch) we checked out The Dining Room 28 Queen Street which is part of the Edinburgh Scotch Malt Whisky Society whose home is a stunning Georgian townhouse. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a ‘members only’ affair as the Society has happily flung open its doors far and wide so that anyone can rock up and enjoy what’s on offer. Even us! Since the recent refurb they’ve tucked the members bar on the top floor of the Society but there’s a lovely new bar downstairs and a dining room on the first floor that we were welcomed to discover.

YO SUSHI TO GO!

YO SUSHI TO GO!

yo sushi to goWe quite like Japanese food at the Towers so imagine when Yo Sushi knocked on the door one day and offered up a HUGE takeaway so that we could sample their new #tokyotogo takeaway menu! Back of the net. Happy days.

With very little hesitation required we perused the menu ‘online’ and placed our order. Although unable to deliver (hrmph) we jumped in the Monkfish Motor and headed up to Harvey Nichols Yo Sushi to pick up the goodies. Continue reading

NORN EDINBURGH

NORN EDINBURGH

Norn edinburgh

Amazing…

One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had in Edinburgh.

Dining at the newly opened Norn*(in the site of the old Plumed Horse) is incredible and a few hours of your life that you will savour for a very long time.

With great consideration for ingredients, seasonality, and sourcing, and a focus on creativity Norn has a clear edge on other restaurants in town. Forget white tablecloths and hushed voices – the Rolling Stones are playing on the jukebox, the front of house have very cool moss linen aprons and you’ll get a visit from each of the chefs in the kitchen over the course of your meal. It feels young, different and very exciting.

Enjoy the extremely reasonable 3 course lunch for £20 otherwise indulge yourself in the 4 or 7 course tasting menus (with the option of matching wines.
