With flashy Restaurant Mark Greenaway already doing good business in the city, the eponymous chef is cementing his position among Edinburgh’s gastronomic hierarchy with the launch of Bistro Moderne – a converted bank building not far from its high-end sibling. Lofty ceilings, panelled walls and prints set the scene for a bulging drinks list and a repertoire of highly worked seasonal dishes with a strong Anglo-European slant. Opt for the carte or the five-course grazing menu and expect plenty of surprises – from a riff on ‘boil in the bag’ cod with parsley sauce to a slab of braised pork neck with sweet potato, pickled plums, baby leeks and puffed crackling. For afters, the dedicated dessert bar might yield a ‘jam jar’ of rice pudding layered with cranberry compote and ripple ice cream. Weekend breakfasts (Fri-Sun) are a bonus for the locals.
