The Honours, Edinburgh

The Honours

The Honours, Edinburgh

The Honours – Edinburgh opened in 2011 and represented the exciting next step of Martin Wishart’s journey. His aim was to further strengthen Scotland’s reputation for good food and to inspire others with his unequivocal enthusiasm for the very best traditional and modern French cuisine. Having launched the Michelin-starred Restaurant Martin Wishart in 1999 and Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond in Cameron House Hotel in 2008, The Honours was received with great acclaim and a sister restaurant followed in Glasgow in 2014.

The restaurant’s name makes reference to the moment in Scottish history when Sir Walter Scott — who lived nearby — uncovered the Scottish Crown Jewels, also known as The Honours of Scotland.
In addition, the name owes a debt to a rare 18th century book, “the Honours of the Table”. In this celebrated volume, the author, Rev. Dr. John Trusler, advised the youth of the day on table etiquette, exclaiming that: “To do the honours of a table gracefully, is one of the outlines of a well-bred man…”.

Since opening his eponymous restaurant in Edinburgh’s Port of Leith in 1999, Martin Wishart has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most highly respected chefs, currently holding one Michelin star, 4 AA rosettes and a score of 8/10 in the Good Food Guide. In addition, Martin won the title of AA Chefs’ chef of the year 2010-2011. Martin trained under such renowned chefs as Albert Roux, Michel Roux Jr, Marco Pierre White, Nick Nairn, John Burton-Race, Marc Meneau and Charlie Trotter.

The Head Chef, Paul Tamburrini, has known Martin for over 12 years, since the two met in the kitchen of Edinburgh’s Balmoral Hotel in 1998. Paul’s extensive experience includes stints at some of the UK’s most renowned Michelin starred restaurants, such as Marco Pierre White’s L’Escargot Restaurant London, Airds Hotel in Argyll as well as Martin Wishart’s fine dining restaurant in Leith, Edinburgh.

Martin and Paul spent a great deal of time researching the perfect balance of ambience, design and style for The Honours – Edinburgh, drawing inspiration from many successful restaurants around the world. Together, they have crafted a unique menu utilising the trusted artisan producers and suppliers. The menu at The Honours – Edinburgh combines seasonal, Scottish flavours in innovative, brasserie-influenced dishes. The team have compiled a concise, but varied wine list with the aim of offering the majority of the selection by the glass. They also offer an impressive array of cocktails and a suitably continental selection of aperitifs and digestifs. If you are not feeling inclined for a full meal, the bar menu includes a selection of smaller dishes, so there is something to suit everyone at The Honours – Edinburgh.

Twenty Princes Street

Twenty Princes Street

Twenty Princes Street

Twenty Princes Street has made a real impression on the dining scene in Edinburgh since it opened in Summer 2013 and has become a firm favourite with locals and visitors to the city – gaining an enviable reputation for its innovative, seasonal menus and extensive drinks menu, as well as stunning panoramic views over Princes Street, the Old Town and all the way up towards the Castle.

Twenty presents a wondrously elegant and stunning setting that is sure to bewitch even the most cosmopolitan of patrons, offering a trendy and sophisticated dining experience where the ambience is refreshingly informal and the atmosphere is glamorous, but not glitzy.

The restaurant’s interiors are a blend of old and new; triple-height bay windows and period features nodding to its Victorian heritage, while illuminated curved leather and walnut booths and shiny marbles tables give the restaurant some contemporary credentials. Light and bright, with walls adorned with pictures and photographs reflecting the history of Edinburgh and the most amazing views in town, Twenty Princes Street is captivating and capacious with a fabulous wine wall that adds further interest to the room.

One of the most eye-catching elements is the stunning ornate ceiling which has been sympathetically reinstated and dazzling designer light fittings loom majestically overhead in this large yet intimate space.

Executive Chef Tony Sarton demonstrates culinary flair with an inventive and eclectic menu that keeps apace with the seasons, using a wide range of Scottish produce and only the finest locally sourced ingredients.

It’s not surprising that Tony claimed the coveted title of ‘Chef of the Year’ at the 2015 Scottish Hotel Awards as he likes to push boundaries and add a little theatre and fun – Scottish brown crab is artfully deconstructed as tea and toast: the shell turned into a pot of strong, sea-salty broth, the brown meat into delicate mousse & the white into a creamy, refreshing parfait to spread on a tiny bread loaf and a glass cloche is lifted to reveal a puff of hickory smoke, presenting a tender, blood-red Border beef carpaccio, soft-boiled quails’ eggs, pickled walnuts and crunchy baby onion rings! Traditional dishes also shine with a well-seasoned, succulent ribeye steak seared to 450˚C in the much-vaunted charcoal-fuelled Josper grill and oven, while a sublime seafood box of half lobster with scallops, mussels, cockles and fresh, sweet langoustine is amazing value.

Twenty’s signature dishes include Seared West Coast scallops & medallions of lobster with apple consommé & vanilla; Buccleuch black pudding & pork belly roll with apple purée & sage oil; Twenty Burger, a 7oz chuck steak burger with crispy bacon, smoked mayonnaise and Innis & Gunn rarebit, served with triple-cooked chips and salad leaves; Chipotle & maple-glazed Secreto de Iberico pork, piquillo pepper gnocchi and green beans; Salt & rosemary-baked seabass with pickled spring vegetable & warm potato salad, lemon & chervil butter; ‘Fire & Ice’ Banoffee Baked Alaska – Flaming rum, caramelised banana, toffee & vanilla ice cream, sponge & toasted meringue.
