Now in its second year, Chop House Leith has already built up an outstanding reputation thanks to its premium dry-aged chargrilled steaks, impeccable service and intimate surroundings. Despite its quiet location, it’s extremely popular – it’s worth arriving early to enjoy a tipple at the well-stocked bar. There’s little danger of overindulging on the starters menu: shrimps, scallops and oysters are sold individually and the king prawn cocktail with Bloody Mary salsa kickstarts the tastebuds with no danger of filling the belly. Chop House’s 35-day steaks are cooked over an open-flame grill, lending them a subtle smokiness. The marbled fat in the ribeye is perfectly rendered, and the fillet practically melts in the mouth. To accompany, try the well-seasoned buttery mash with rich beef gravy or the toothpick-thin skinny fries. For an intimate dessert, the salted caramel fondue is sublime, sticky fun, and there are a comprehensive selection of cheeses too.
