Mighty fine dining

Steak_SaladFancy some fine dining this lunch time? Steak restaurant in Edinburgh has a new lunchtime menu with two courses of mouth watering treats for less than a tenner.

 

I took along my paintbrush and paper to capture each course as head chef Jason Wright, previously of Ondine seafood restaurant in Edinburgh, created them. The apple and walnut salad with blue cheese was crisp and fresh, dotted with sweet caramelised walnuts which combined perfectly with flashes of blue cheese.

 

The main event at ‘Steak’ is always going to be the steak, there are other choices; parmesan breaded chicken escalope with gremolata for example, or Scot pine gnocchi with mushrooms, cheddar and truffle sounded intriguing. But in all honesty it took just seconds to decide on the rump steak frites with bearnaise sauce. Juicy and perfectly seasoned the steak was delicious and the frites crisp and home made, and gluten free too which was a bonus.

This really is fine dining for a bargain price, the only trouble I had was not devouring the lot before I had time to sketch my lunch!

 

Lunch is available at Steak every day from 12-2.30pm, two courses (starter & main) for £9.95 – add a dessert for £3.50 / add a glass of house red/white for £3.50.
