After a long day on our feet, punctuated with a few drinking stops along the way, we arrived at La Petite Mort a little early but we were quickly greeted and seated and left to look over the menu. The restaurant is a fifteen minute walk from the main shopping area of Princes Street or just five minutes on one of the many Lothian Buses that go by the theatre.
The wine list is fairly extensive with plenty of option to suit most budgets and knowing that we would both be ordering red meat for our main course, we opted for a bottle of the house red - a wonderful Solandia Nero D'Avola from Sicily. Restaurant manager Jennie explained that they try hard to keep the wine list interesting, stocking wines that you might not find elsewhere. As house wines go, the Nero D'Avalo was very good, deep red in colour and packed with plenty of berry fruit flavour and a hint of liquorice and vanilla in the background. If you like Shiraz, then you should enjoy the similarities that this Italian red brings to the table.
