Social Bite, a highly appealing place, opened its doors, with its high quality, ethically sourced all-day fare proving popular. If you haven’t yet visited, take yourself along to Rose Street and sample their wares.
The Edinburgh Larder Bistro proved a real favourite, serving innovative and well thought-out dishes, focussing on excellent local produce.
I really enjoyed the Cellar Door, on George IV Bridge. They served me a really good steak, in smart surroundings.
We had our first visit to Gardener’s Cottage in August, but we’re still working on the review, as a place with such seasonality at its heart requires a good few visits to form a comprehensive view.
Most popular review of the month was Pep and Fodder, a new café on Waterloo Place, from the folks behind the Bon Vivant. Specialising in marvellously dressed salads, I’ve been quite a frequent visitor to this place, and not just because it happens to be near to my office.
