Bread Street Brasserie

30-32 Bread St Edinburgh EH3 9AF

This bright, breezy brasserie was a welcome addition to the western fringes of Edinburgh's city centre when the Doubletree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre opened in 2014. Given that it's a hotel eatery they could be forgiven for just playing safe with the Scottish staples. They do cover those with a mean fillet of Scotch beef with an optional aside of chunky chips cooked in beef dripping. But then there are the likes of a 'prawn cocktail' reinvented with crab meat or baked figs laden with blue cheese as palate pleasing starters. The wine list is trim, but decent, a bit like a brasserie that in general is worth staying in for for hotel guests and that deserves to win a bit of passing traffic too in a part of town not known for its great restaurants.
