About Home by Maison Bleue
Ethical dining in the West End
Home is a sister restaurant to Edinburgh’s iconic Maison Bleue. Although it shares the same commitment to serving quality French, North African and Scottish cuisine, the restaurant has a unique social mission. Working alongside Social Bite, it gives customers the chance to pay meals forward for the homeless and donates 100% of its profits to charity. Home also offers training and employment opportunities for disadvantaged people. This means that you can enjoy feasting on international cuisine in a stunning open plan dining room in the West End, while making a difference to the world in the process.
Dishes from around the world
Home by Maison Bleue Home serves hearty French, North African and traditional Scottish dishes using cooking skills from each of these regions. Menus can change regularly but typical starters might include a range of “bouchees” (mouthfuls) designed to be shared. These include the Surprise Calamari with the secret spicy sauce, the haggis balls deep fried in beer batter, and the fondue de Camembert.
Mains might feature the slow-cooked beef cheeks with a red wine glaze and garlic mousseline of mash, the South Vietnamese coconut chicken with sweet basil, lemongrass & lime leaves, and the confit duck leg with cassoulet and Toulouse sausage.
Or you could choose from the Les Grillades range of Mediterranean skewered, marinated meats cooked on the char grill or alternatively, sample a tasty tagine instead.
