So the festival is nearly over and the circus is about to leave town.
We will mainly be consoling ourselves by eating gourmet burgers and sipping on Bellinis courtesy of today’s Big Deal with 56 North.
A stylish cocktail bar and kitchen on West Crosscauseway, 56 North is handy for Edinburgh University’s Bristo Square – the scene of much festival mirth over the last few weeks.
It is also well placed for a pre-theatre bite before shows at the Festival Theatre.
For those who would rather take a break from all things theatrical 56 North has huge floor to ceiling windows and cosy booths – as perfect for people-watching as they are for romantic rendezvous.
Range of burgers
Today’s Big Deal with 56 North is for two people to each enjoy one of 56 North’s fantastic gourmet burgers along with shoestring fries and Bellini each.
All burgers are served in a fresh burger bun with shoestring fries. You choose either an 8oz steak mince burger or butterflied chicken breast.
There are nine burgers to choose from.
Get cooking with the Breaking Bad – topped with avocado guacamole, smoked bacon and blue cheese or head to Bangkok for a burger crowned with pulled pork, fresh chilli, spring onions, rocket and chard with hoisin sauce.
You could also tackle the Tower – a burger topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, giant onion rings, and BBQ sauce.
56 North has been the winner of Scottish Licensed Trade News Spirits bar of the year and they have a rather serious cocktail list.
You know you are in safe hands when they start mixing up your Bellini.
The bar has no shortage of customers eager to report on how much they enjoyed their meal at 56 North.
On 5pm Dining, customers have given it an average rating of 3.9/5. This is what one happy 5pmer had to say:
‘The deal we got via 5pm was amazing and we were not disappointed by anything. We all went for one of the burgers with a Bellini of choice and we struggled to clear our plates – not through lack of trying! We sat outside in the sunshine and retuned later in the evening for a G ‘n’ T as we had enjoyed it so much’
