Squaremeal Review of The Edinburgh Larder Bistro ?

True to its name, this buzzy and recently refurbished basement bistro sets out to showcase the best of the Scotland’s regional larder, with seasonal pickings and prime stuff from the nation’s artisan ‘food heroes’ topped up by provisions from the owners’ deli/café on Blackfriars Street. The menu changes constantly and there’s always something to surprise those with inquisitive palates: crab and tomato terrine is enlivened with a salad of sea purslane, while a dish of scallops and ham ‘hough’ (hock) comes dressed with nettles. Main courses also make the most of humble ingredients, from beef cheek to smoked pollock, and there’s an eclectic approach when it comes to desserts – think green-tea set cream flavoured with salted seaweed or chocolate fondant with beetroot granita and carrot ice cream. The drinks list is equally patriotic, ranging from unusual malt whiskies to Scottish-brewed beers.
