Harden's survey result
“I would travel a LONG way for these exceptional, innovative flavours” says a London-based reporter about this Fountainbridge fixture, opened in 2012 in the “charismatic” space of a converted Victorian warehouse, and serving a selection of Ben Radford’s Scandi-influenced tasting menus (from four-courses to eight-courses), offset by a “long” wine list of exclusively natural wines from small European producers.
“Exceptional and interesting food” in the “atmospheric surroundings” of a Victorian warehouse can be a “stunning experience” at this modern, Scandi-influenced operation from the second generation of the Radford family (whose parents Andrew and Lisa ran popular Edinburgh restaurants Atrium and Blue).
A “top spot for Edinburgh” – this “large and barn-like”, “warehouse-style” venue is run by the younger generation of local restaurant impresarios, the Radford family. It gives rise to the odd niggle (“a bit too much hype”… “possibly takes itself a bit seriously”…) but for the most part wins high praise for its “warm modern style”, and “innovative cuisine with the emphasis on foraging and sustainability”.
“The Radord family excel at this great space” – a converted warehouse with outside terrace near the Traverse Theatre. “Tastebuds are tantalised and challenged, but in a good way” by the “fascinating” Nordic-inspired cuisine, and it’s an “exciting” venue – “lovely lighting, candles and woodburner” (and “great cocktails”) – even if “you never feel hip enough to eat there”.
