Square Meal Review of Bistro Moderne by Mark Greenaway ?

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.

  1. It was our last day in the beautiful, if slightly damp city of Edinburgh and we only had one more restaurant to tick off our list. That restaurant was Bistro Moderne, the new launch by Mark Greenaway (of Great British Menu fame) of which we’d been invited. Mark received nationwide acclaim following the opening of his self titled restaurant in Edinburgh in February 2011 and followed that up with 3 AA Rosettes for his outstanding cooking. Well that’s Mark covered, what about the restaurant and his menu? Set in a beautiful old bank building in North West Circus Place at the heart of Edinburgh’s leafy Stockbridge. The area is fast becoming a foodie magnet, with Tom Kitchen’s new gastro-pub and speciality shops bringing in the crowds. The ceilings are high and the decor simple yet elegant, lots of dark paneling and polished brass. Parquet flooring with clean cream and ‘heritage green’* walls add to this refined feel (*if this green was a Farrow and Ball paint, it would be called Dusty Under Doormat Mould)...
