This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Bread Meats Bread on Lothian Road, next to the Filmhouse, is the latest in a string of gourmet burger joints taking Edinburgh by storm. The interior is smart, modern and filled with copper lights and lightbulb signs, creating a young, trendy feel. The restaurant audibly bustles (this isn't a good place to come for a quiet chat) as steam rises from the open-plan kitchen and groups laugh and catch up over a tasty bite to eat. There's a smart nod to Edinburgh here with the burger names ranging from Sunshine on Beef to the epic Lothian Wolf with cheese, bacon and the gorgeous pulled-pork topping rising high above the locally sourced beef. For sides, there's a hefty selection from buffalo fries to squeaky fried cheese or classic poutine (chips, cheese curds and gravy) which come in generous portions, so don’t over-order. The restaurant doesn't take bookings and does get busy but the service is swift so you shouldn't have to wait too long to grab a table and tuck in.
