No11 Brunswick Street Restaurant with Rooms prepares for a busy festive season as figures from Open Table reveal that more families then ever are eating out on Christmas Day.
A staggering 45% increase from 2014 to 2015 shows that restaurants have become a popular option for the big day's family meal with families ditching the home cooking for a relaxed dining experience with no washing up!
Privately run, No11 is creating a home from home dining experience with beautifully prepared food from local suppliers, sparkling décor and exquisite service. Starting from £79, Christmas day diners will be greeted by a glass of champagne, followed by an exquisite 5-course meal all served in the magnificent setting of the Georgian Townhouse.
With a focus on value as well as taste, the restaurant, which is gaining a reputation as Edinburgh's hidden gem, is also gearing up for the annual office lunch and friend get together bookings.
Available from 1st to 24th December the Festive Scottish Menu at No11 is bursting with traditional favourites cooked to perfection using the best Scottish produce.
With two courses starting from £17.95, and three £23.95, the menu features dishes such as Hot Smoked Salmon served with Peashoot Salad and Lime & Crème Fraiche Jelly, Breast of Lothian Turkey Wrapped in Pancetta served with Stornoway Black Pudding Croquettes, Traditional Bread & Herb Stuffing Bon Bons, Whole Roast Carrots and Roast Turkey Gravy and Plum & Roast Chestnut Steamed Pudding with Strawberry Coulis.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the Festive Scottish Menu, experienced head chef Willie Lonnie said: "Christmas is a fantastic time for diners, and chefs, to indulge in rich flavoursome dishes, which is why the menu is packed with festive favourites with a twist.
"The menu, and the setting of the beautiful Georgian Townhouse, has been designed to evoke memories of traditional Christmas sights, smells and tastes."
Owner Susan Grant added: "Christmas is a magical time of year and one that offers the chance to indulge in a meal packed with festive cheer and delicious flavours. With so much going on in Edinburgh, No11 offers the perfect spot for relaxed dining away from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh's festive streets.
"Every year we open our doors on Christmas Day and absolutely love to see happy diners getting in to the festive spirit - and we hope 2016 will bring just as much cheer as the last."
