This spot in Frederick Street, a stone’s throw from bustling George Street, has undergone a stylish transformation into a bright, airy Edinburgh outpost of the London-based chain. Formerly a shop selling high-end traditional cookers, it's now a restaurant selling top-notch traditional cooking. The floor space is neatly divided into several small sections, adding a cosier feel to a substantial area. All-day dining covers brunch and à la carte options, as well as a full gluten-free menu and a keenly priced lunch and early evening deal, with some ingredients sourced from France. Among the starters, a warm leek dish, served with boiled eggs and sourdough croutons in a vinaigrette, packs a punch and sets the scene for mains brimming with flavour, such as moist chargrilled chicken breast served alongside creamy gratin potatoes and a jus that brings balance. Desserts are traditional French favourites, likely to include an apple tarte tatin that rounds off an experience typical of the Parisian brasseries on which Côte is modelled.
