Some people like spring for the warmer weather, budding trees and lighter nights.
We love spring because it is when Scotland’s natural larder comes to life.
Eat the best of the new season with today’s Big Deal on a meal from the spring menu in the Brasserie at the charming No 11 Brunswick Street in Edinburgh.
Just ten minutes from Princes Street, this welcoming hotel is set in a gorgeous Georgian townhouse – a very elegant environment for a fine dinner.
Part of a terrace of townhouses, No 11 Brunswick Street combines the grandeur of classic Edinburgh architecture with opulent, contemporary facilities.
It is also just five minutes from Edinburgh Playhouse – handy if you fancy a pre-show dinner.
Available seven days a week, this offer is for two people to each have two courses from the spring menu in the No 11 Brasserie plus a glass of sparkling wine each.
The exact dishes may change depending on the ingredients available each day.
However, typical starters might be the confit chicken leg and pancetta terrine with plum tomato salad or the steamed mussels with white wine, garlic and parsley butter.
Popular main courses on the spring menu include the crispy pork cheeks with carrot and Parmesan rosti and cauliflower and wild garlic purée or the pan-fried fillet of halibut with sweet potato fondant, saffron-braised fennel and a spring onion and port sauce.
Dessert-lovers can enjoy dishes such as the dark chocolate and Baileys cheesecake with raspberry and Champagne coulis or the peanut butter parfait with almond tuile.
Dishes from the specials menu and the Cheesboard will be charged a £2.50 supplement.
No 11 has prompted many 5pm users to leave cheery reviews such as this:

We like it when spring is in the air. We absolutely love it when spring is also on our plate.
