Where do you start?! There have been soooo many new restaurant openings recently that we’re bound to miss one, not mention one, offend someone for forgetting one or we just don’t know about it yet. If any of the above apply then please comment below and we’ll add it to the list.
So, here goes, in no particular order (honest…)
New restaurant openings Edinburgh
Lovage, Blackfriars Street
Brothers Lukasz and Bartek Jedrejek are in the kitchen, a biomedical scientist and a Scran & Scallie chef bring a real gem to Edinburgh’s old town. Go there for creative dishes using quality Scottish produce plus an absolute steal of a lunch menu at £13.95 for two courses. We’ve recently reviewed for Olive magazine and gave it the big thumbs up.
The Educated Flea, Broughton Street
From the folk who have already brought us The Apiary and Three Bird’s comes The Educated Flea. Continue reading
DRAM & SMOKE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL
Following numerous sold out London projects, Dram & Smoke is heading north of the border for The Edinburgh Festival Fringe; taking over a former Biscuit Factory for all of August.
Dishes that champion the best of Scottish produce are served up family-style from an open kitchen alongside well-sourced wine, Scottish beer, Naked Grouse whisky cocktails and a solid playlist. The house party vibe is helped along with bar games and live music performances plus the fully-stocked bar stays open late. Continue reading
YO SUSHI TO GO!
We 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 Dominic Jack at the pass, Castle Terrace Edinburgh stands alone thanks to the innovative cuisine and the exceptional service.
One of the kingpins of the Edinburgh fine-dining scene over the last few years, Castle Terrace continues to deliver exquisite dishes in its newly refurbed contemporary dining room at the foot of Edinburgh castle. Part of the renowned Kitchin group, it stands alone thanks to the innovative food that chef Dominic Jack brings to the table. Continue reading
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.
