The best advice that Team Big Deal ever received was ‘If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you’ve never tried before’ – wise words which have got us into all sorts of memorable situations.
If you would like a truly memorable meal then our best advice would be to snap up today’s Big Deal with B’est, a cosy French restaurant in Edinburgh’s atmospheric Old Town.
A popular bistro since opening some seven years ago, B’est specialises in tasty contemporary bistro dishes served in unique, wood panelled surroundings.
A la carte
This beezer Big Deal is for either two or four people to each enjoy a starter, main course and dessert from the a la carte menu.
The menu will change according to what is in season but typical starters might include the confit of duck spring rolls; the seared tuna loin Nicoise salad and the grilled aubergine stuffed with mozzarella and a cherry tomato chutney.
Popular main courses include the roast loin of pork with seasonal vegetables and an apple sauce; the ricotta ravioli and the grilled fillet of cod with lemon crushed potatoes and a dill sauce.
The desserts vary from classic crème brulee and apple pie to tiramisu and profiteroles.
Supplements will apply to lamb and steak dishes.
Close to Festival Theatre
Only a hop, skip and a jump from the Festival Theatre, B’est is popular with culture vultures keen on a pre-show bite.
Not that you need to have tickets to a show to enjoy a performance at B’est – today’s Big Deal would be just as good for a romantic meal for two or dinner with friends.
