Steaks, burgers and everything else: where to get the best cuts of juicy meat in the city


Scottish beef is firmly at the heart of the city's steakhouses and burger bars, and though the trend for the latter seems to have gone off the boil, there are still plenty of places fighting the good fight against the chains. With options to suit almost every pocket, meat lovers are spoilt for choice.

Great burgers and steaks are the focus at this cosy, trendy American-style spot near Edinburgh University.
