Edinburgh's Monster Mash becomes Mum's Great Comfort Food
Déjà vu all over again
Hot on the heels of Ashes to Ashes, a Conservative prime minister and not overlooking Marc Almond’s 25th anniversary tour, the 80s and 90s revival continues with the return of the old green and gold livery of Pierre Victoire to the streets of Edinburgh.
After two years of hearing diners and journos compare Chez Pierre on Eyre Place to Pierre Victoire, Pierre Levicky couldn’t resist an attempt to revive the good old days by rebranding. Of course the hint was there when Chez Jules arrived in Hanover Street late last year, and Levicky claims it was the success of a one-off Pierre Victoire night at the newer restaurant that prompted the switch.
Another name change has taken place on Forrest Road in Edinburgh where the well-known Monster Mash has become Mum’s Great Comfort Food. According to the restaurant it’s the ‘same team, new name, long story!’ They’re promising a similar, but new, menu and lower prices.
