Nothing beats the warm glow of a tasty, comfort food-style meal.
Expect, maybe, the warm glow of doing something nice for a stranger.
The best thing about today’s Big Deal from newly opened Edinburgh restaurant, Vesta, is that you get to enjoy both. Because with every purchase of this sharing platter and gin flight for two people, £2 will go to the homeless charity Social Bite.
Meaning that no matter how chilly it is outside, you can enjoy a glow as warm as Caribbean sunshine.
Cuisine that cares
A partner of the charity Social Bite, Vesta is a newly launched restaurant that promises a warm welcome, fantastic bar and healthy, feel-good comfort food.
It’s based on Queensferry Street in the West End, close to House of Fraser and around a 15-minute walk from Haymarket station.
Inside, you will find a cheerful eating space that is both stylish and rustic.
Sharing platter and gin flight
With this Big Deal, two people can enjoy the special 5pm sharing platter as well as a flight of three gins each.
If gin isn’t your thing, then you can swap it for a bottle of Prosecco or soft drink each. Whatever makes you happiest.
The offer is valid seven days a week until 26th March 2019. Best of all, a £2 donation from every purchase will go directly to Social Bite, a charity working to end homelessness in Scotland.
Vesta serves up ‘food to glow’ that is simple, delicious and nutritious with big flavours to boot.
Individual items might change, but here is a sample sharing platter menu:
Selection of Scottish cheeses & chutney
Ham hock bonbons
Cauliflower ‘buffalo wings’
The gin flight for two will include the chance to try three gins served with a bottle of London Essence Tonic each.
Despite only just opening, Vesta has been collecting outstanding reviews on its Facebook page. Here are a few, edited for shortness:
‘Stumbled across this place and liked the look of the menu so thought we would give it a go… lovely food, lovely wine, lovely atmosphere and super friendly staff… glad to have stumbled…’
‘Delicious, healthy food and lovely staff. Second visit in a week and both times were great. Fantastic that the company is ethical and supports the homeless through jobs and getting back on track. Highly recommended.’
‘Met a friend here yesterday for lunch and was hugely impressed. Not only did I love the decor and style but the service was outstanding… I loved the menu, it is fresh, inspiring and great to see something different being offered in Edinburgh. Great vegan options… couldn’t fault this place — would highly recommend.’
Perfect for gin lovers
Gin lovers and foodies would adore this dining deal from Vesta in central Edinburgh.
But of course, you could just treat yourself to it and try out a brand new dining spot in the new year (plus raise money for a fantastic charity in the process).
