Review on The Scran & Scallie
Michelin-starred and Catey Award winning chefs Tom Kitchin and Dominic Jack, the team behind The Kitchin and Castle Terrace Restaurant in Edinburgh have opened a third venture The Scran & Scallie in Stockbridge, on the former San Marco site. The building has been updated whilst keeping many of its original features, with exposed brick walls, distressed furnishings and reclaimed tartan and tweeds, big patterned wallpaper from Scottish firm Timorous Beasties, creating a rustic and welcoming vibe.
The concise menu reflects Kitchin's nature to plate ethos with a focus on first class local ingredients, showcasing modern dishes alongside some forgotten classics such as Sheep's Heid Scotch Broth. The format of the menu was inspired by 19th and early 20th-century Scottish menus discovered in the National Library of Scotland, so 'Yer starters' could feature such delights as roasted bone marrow, shallot and parsley or roll mop herring and potato salad. Moving on to 'Yer mains', there's braised hogget shoulder, peas and lettuce or smoked haddock and seafood chowder with a poached egg. Vegetarians, 'Nae meat, nae fish', are also catered for with dishes like braised artichoke with coco beans. Yer puddin's offer a different crumble daily or maybe warm chocolate chip cookie and ice cream.
The Scran & Scallie has a well-spread wine list with the majority available by the glass.
