Forget Jamie, Gordon or Nigella and let’s even not begin on the Hemsleys.
In Edinburgh’s Southside, the buzz is all about Bertha’s cooking.
Bertha being the new charcoal-burning oven at 56 North.
A stylish cocktail bar and kitchen on West Crosscauseway, 56 North recently took delivery of Bertha.
Cooking at more than 400 degrees C, she gives meat a wonderful charred, caramelised flavour.
Taste it for yourself with today’s Big Deal on steak sarnies + drinks for two at 56 North.
Handy for Edinburgh Uni and the Queen’s Hall, 56 North is a cool bar and kitchen which is also well placed for a pre-theatre bite before shows at the Festival Theatre.
It has huge floor to ceiling windows and cosy booths – as perfect for people-watching as they are for romantic rendezvous.
Aged Scottish beef
