Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

If you’re an Edinburgh WAG looking for a bite to eat before a night on the town with your footballer boyfriend, Le Monde will be one of your first choices. The world is your oyster in this boutique hotel with international themed bedrooms, dining areas and the Shanghai night club. Downstairs throughout the week you can kick back in leather chairs, sip a cocktail and pick up a bite to eat in either Vienna or Milan. At the weekend, Paris opens upstairs, with its very sophisticated Victorian-style eatery and adjoining bar. The menu is not the most exciting element of Le Monde, but there’s a wide choice of locally sourced dishes. The mini all-day breakfast is a lighter starter than you would imagine, with a quail's egg atop a pile of haggis, black pudding, mushroom and pancetta. There’s a fine line of burgers, including a tasty signature venison burger, as well as a selection of mainstream dishes such as 'duck two ways', which consists of a well-cooked confit of leg and pan-fried breast, accompanied by a small portion of slightly salty veg. Desserts include chocolate cheesecake and the signature whisky and orange sticky toffee pudding.
