Square Meal Review of Castle Terrace ?

‘From nature to plate’ is the mantra of at this sibling of Edinburgh high flyer The Kitchin, which has also picked up a Michelin red gong – thanks to Dominic Jack’s fine-tuned seasonal cooking. Raw materials of distinguished provenance go into starters ranging from a sushi-style tartare of Loch Duart salmon to grouse pâté en croûte served with pear, prune and port. Deft handling and clear, well defined flavours are also the hallmarks of, say, stuffed saddle of Inverurie lamb à la rognonnade with braised fennel, smoked aubergine purée, basil and olive jus, while meals reach a climax with a veritable galaxy of desserts – perhaps a mille-feuille of Braeburn apples and yoghurt cream with nougatine and praline or blackberry and black cardamom pannacotta accompanied by lemon and cardamom sorbet. The kitchen’s “elegant”, sophisticated food is a perfect fit for the cool, contemporary dining room.

One of the restaurants that many critics rave about is Castle Terrace. The head chef, Dominic Jack, trained in some of France’s most prestigious kitchens, such as Taillevent and L’Arpege...
