About Chez Mal - Edinburgh City
Stylish brasserie dining in New Town
Based at the landmark St. Andrew Square, Chez Mal Edinburgh City serves up French-inspired cuisine within Malmaison hotel. The interior is sumptuous, with banquette seating in deep teal velvet, design-led lighting and hanging greenery.
Despite the voguish vibe, the brasserie setting means that it’s all very relaxed too. This means that you can make a beeline here for a casual meal, special occasion dinner or leisurely Sunday lunch.
Classic cuisine and global dishes
The menus are neatly balanced between classic brasserie dishes and contemporary international choices, with a definite French flourish. Curated by Executive Chef John Woodward, the aim is to transform food into art and truly showcase each season.
Sample mains include the comforting braised beef short rib cottage pie with Guinness or, for curry lovers, the Murgh makhani butter chicken. Fans of ocean cuisine can tuck into dishes like roast cod in tomato & kale broth, while the squash & red onion tagine would make a tasty choice for veggies.
There is also a grill section serving up Chez Mal exclusive grain fed 28-day aged
beef. Choices include Black Angus fillet, ribeye and rump. Beef and veggie burgers are also available. The set price Sunday lunch, featuring both brunch and roasts, is a truly epic affair.
