Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Chop House in Bruntsfield is the newest Chop House in town, and there’s a real sense that the team have very much perfected their formula. Food, drink and service are slick and the interior is modern, sophisticated and unpretentious, with beautiful views over Bruntsfield Links. Choosing a pre-dinner drink from the extensive cocktail list is bound to lead to FOMO: from the classics to the alcohol-free signature serves, each is picture-perfect. Then turn to the steaks – Scottish beef is dry-aged in-house using Himalayan salts for a minimum of 35 days, then cooked on an open-flame charcoal grill. From the first bite of ribeye the meat is tender, juicy, and full of flavour. Just don’t forget the thick-cut dripping chips. Desserts feature the usual sticky toffee pudding, sorbets and ice creams, plus unexpected delicacies such as the coal-roasted pineapple sundae.
