Some meals suit their surroundings better than others. Eating a dirty burger in a Michelin starred restaurant is just plain wrong while scoffing a delicate soufflé in a greasy spoon wouldn’t seem right either.
So put your hands together for today’s Big Deal which makes a felicitous match between a refined afternoon tea and the charming surrounds of the brasserie at No 11 Brunswick Street in Edinburgh.
Just five minutes from Edinburgh Playhouse and ten minutes from Princes Street, this stunning Georgian townhouse combines the grandeur of classic Edinburgh architecture with a swish, contemporary sense of style.
The spacious brasserie at No 11 Brunswick Street uses Scotland’s best local ingredients to make gourmet comfort food. Suppliers include the award winning Rannoch Smokery; the well-known butcher, Crombies of Edinburgh and cheeses from the Devenick Dairy in Banchory.
While Scotland’s larder is world famous, our wines are less so. This afternoon tea is accompanied by a chilled glass of Montana Sparkling Rosé from New Zealand.
