SquareMeal Review of The Kitchin

Hall of FameTom Kitchin’s highly regarded Michelin-starred restaurant on Leith’s reenergised waterfront comes with a swanky private dining room, a whisky snug and a temperature-controlled wine cellar – not to mention views of the kitchen from a specially designed window. Inside, there are also hints of Scotland’s heritage (tartans, sheepskins, silver birch), while Kitchin’s highly distinctive cooking is still founded on seasonal produce from regional growers, producers and fishermen. ‘From nature to plate’ is the mantra, and that translates into clever, complex ideas such as shellfish cannelloni served with crab, peas and a Newhaven ‘green crab’ bisque, stuffed saddle of Pathhead rabbit accompanied by braised artichoke and North Sea squid or roast duck with endive tart, roast carrot and orange sauce. To conclude, try something delectably seasonal such as Knockraich yoghurt pannacotta with gooseberry sorbet and elderflower consommé. The cosy dining room creates just the right mood, value for money is seldom in doubt, and visitors appreciate the chef’s personal, welcoming touch as he greets everyone individually in the bar.

Isn't it just wonderful when you can't find one single thing that would have made your dining experience better… That was the case when my son and I visited The Kitchin to celebrate his 40th birthday. Cocktails in the sunshine set the tone for two and a half hours of sheer delight. We chose the lunch menu of the day. Each course, exquisitely presented, was greeted with “OOhs and Ahs” when tasted (reminiscent of a scene from “When Harry Met Sally”!! We chose to have a wine package which gave us a different wine with each course. The wines were superb and served and described beautifully, adding to the whole experience. The overall level of service was was spot on and unobtrusive. While its the most expensive meal I have ever had (taking the drinks into account), it was absolutely worth every penny. A superb venue to celebrate a special occasion.
