Few spots have stood the test of time quite like the Chip – the complex of bars and restaurants that kick-started Ashton Lane’s rise to fame. Above the courtyard restaurant is the more laid-back Brasserie – though do not mistake informality with any lack of quality. The kitchen cooks dishes that are delicate, darn tasty and none too complicated. Take a starter of braised pork cheek – melting on top of Jerusalem artichoke risotto and crispy cabbage, or a juicy confit of octopus with roasted cauliflower, pickled raisins and hazelnuts. A main of salt-baked celeriac sees earthy, veggie crunch matched with mushroom ketchup and shaved chestnuts, while roasted chicken comes with an oh-so-creamy truffle mash, wild mushrooms and puréed parsnip. All in all, these are dishes that seem to match Scotland’s seasons and larders all too perfectly. And with an extensive selection of wines, beers, Scottish cheeses and delicious desserts – not to mention the verdant splendour of innumerable flora – this is a restaurant that more than meets its stellar reputation.
