Twenty Princes Street

Squaremeal Review of Twenty Princes Street ?

Housed in a lavishly corniced Victorian room with oak floors, high ceilings, black leather upholstery and triple-height sash windows looking out onto some of Edinburgh’s iconic buildings, this glamorous and sophisticated first-floor restaurant has quickly become the darling of the city’s beautiful people. Billed as a ‘grill and smokehouse’ with much depending on the output of a centrepiece Josper oven, it offers an eclectic, brasserie-style menu covering ‘warm-up acts’ (aka starters), shellfish and crustacea, ‘headline’ dry-aged Castle Mey steaks, eclectic salads (bulgur wheat, feta and beetroot, for example) and a roster of punchy, international mains ranging from ox cheek with black-eyed bean and chipotle stew to halibut with chanterelles, dashi broth, citrus jelly and crisp vermicelli noodles. If the three TV screens showing Laurel & Hardy films become irritating, you can always seek relief in the Juniper cocktail bar across the corridor.

    The tired and dusty old Royal British Hotel has been undergoing a radical transformation, of late. It has a rather fabulous looking new cocktail bar, Juniper, and a smart new restaurant, Twenty Princes Street Grill & Steakhouse, with a Josper grill as the workhorse of its menu.
    For lunching interests, it has a rather impressive introductory deal, running until the end of November, which offers two main courses and two drinks (house wine, beer or soft drink) for £20...
