After the “heart-breaking decision” to walk away from their much-lauded Leith restaurant Norn, Scott and Laura Smith launch this new venture in Edinburgh.
Harden's survey result
This yearling from ambitious chef Scott Smith and his wife Laura follows the closure of well-regarded Norn in Leith, and presents his take on modern Scottish cuisine in a minimalist city-centre setting – the name derives from the Gaelic for ‘true’. Feedback has been limited so far, and splits between praise for “a really interesting tasting menu” and dismissal of an experience that’s “just unmemorable… apart from the bill!”
With the closure of Norn, chef Scott Smith and his wife Laura launched this minimalist summer newcomer in the city-centre too late for any survey feedback. The food focus is on ambitious experimental cuisine with a strong emphasis on local sourcing.
Fhior Restaurant Diner Reviews
"I thought the food was great. It took risks with flavours and presentation and admittedly this didn't always work but for some reason, I enjoyed that part of the experience and I was sated at the end. The service was very good and the staff were chatty when asked questions. The chef came out and chatted. Its in a good location but I think it would be improved if a little warmer interior-wise. The toilets seem to be shared with a trainer shop. Or maybe I got lost."
