“Brilliant food, lovely ambience, knowledgeable staff”: Mark Greenaway certainly ticks all the boxes at his flagship restaurant – a beautifully refashioned Georgian building in Edinburgh’s Old Town. “Inventive and consistently excellent” cooking is the deal, as Greenaway’s superbly presented dishes create “a feast for the eye and the taste buds”. Here you might find exceptional ideas such as Loch Fyne crab cannelloni with smoked cauliflower custard, lemon pearls, herb butter and baby coriander ahead of, say, 11-hour slow-cooked pork belly with a pork-cheek pie, blackened fillet, sweetcorn and toffee-apple jus. After that, swanky tongue-in-cheek desserts might bring a ‘jam jar’ of blood orange marmalade, jelly, rice pudding and brown-bread ice cream or the renowned ‘knot chocolate tart’ with custard jelly, frozen cookies, crème fraîche parfait, salted caramel and kumquat purée (as seen on TV’s Great British Menu). Mark’s front-of-house partner Nicola and her “fabulous” staff also deserve a special mention in despatches, and it’s worth having a look at the specially designed wine vault in the basement. Bistro Moderne by Mark Greenaway offers something simpler – and slightly cheaper – on nearby North West Circus Place.

Mark Greenaway’s premises on North Castle Street, to which this was my first visit, seemed like a fitting location for the occasion. We have, of course, reviewed Mark’s restaurant before, but that was when he was at his previous place, on Picardy Place. We had reviewed this North Castle Street location, when it was Librizzi, too, so today was a great coming together of various strands of joy.The interior of the place is much like it was in its previous incarnation. It’s quite a relaxed and informal place, styled like a smart bistro, with an impressive central lighting feature. It doesn’t have the impact...

January can be a slightly long depressing month, but our blues were to be lifted by an email from Julia Ward with an invitation from the team at The Balvenie single malt whisky along with Mark Greenaway, to attend an early burns supper and the launch of The Balvenie Private Dining Room at Restaurant Mark Greenaway. This instantly lifted our spirits and the week leading up to the event was filled with anticipation.Restaurant Mark Greenaway is part of an elite selection of restaurants in Scotland, having three AA Rosettes. This puts the restaurant on a par with some of the best establishments in the UK. Often...
