Good Brothers Edinburgh, our review for Olive magazine…
Good Brothers Edinburgh, founded by Graeme and Rory Sutherland, is bringing the natural wine movement to Stockbridge, Edinburgh alongside some outstanding Scottish cuisine. Yes, it’s all about the wine (there’s over 100 of them on the ever-rotating list) but that doesn’t overshadow the fantastic food.
Head chef Maciej Szczepanski has created a menu of classic Scottish cuisine with a twist to accompany the wine selection that includes organic, biodynamic or natural. Chef Maciej has spent the last ten years working his way up the chef’s ladder in the US, Europe and the Far East. His philosophy on fresh produce, seasonality and sustainability is shared with Graeme and Rory….

Nine more sleeps…..Here follow-eth a wee round up of what’s happening in celebration of the Big Man himself, Robert Burns, on the eve of 25th January. If we could spread ourselves thinly these are the Burns suppers in Edinburgh that we would go to this month. Dry January is well and truly OVER people! Chin chin! Continue reading
TIGERLILY EDINBURGH ‘DINE OUT’
Check me out. Yes Mrs Monkfish is on film again and doing what she does best….food shopping! Plus eating (lots of), drinking coffee (even more of), and collaborating with the team at Tigerlily Edinburgh on their new ‘Dine out’ menu.
For the whole of January you can beat those Winter blues and ‘Dine Out’ for just £15 for TWO courses. We all love a bargain particularly when the menu has been designed by my very good self plus the ace kitchen team and chefs at Tigerlily. We wanted to be able to bring you good quality produce for a good price. £15 for two courses is possible if you shop well, choose seasonal produce and are creative in the kitchen. Clever cooking and eating well doesn’t have to cost the earth.
*** DINE OUT COMPETITION ***
And if that wasn’t enough Tigerlily are running a competition over on their FACEBOOK PAGE for you to win dinner on them. Click click, like and share, you know the score!
The winners dinner will take place on Tuesday 31st January. And don’t worry, you won’t have to dine out with me, you can take someone else instead!

THE DINING ROOM 28 QUEEN STREET
Date night….it doesn’t happen very often so when it does you’ve got to make the most of it… Both partial to a tasting menu (with accompanying drinks natch) we checked out The Dining Room 28 Queen Street which is part of the Edinburgh Scotch Malt Whisky Society whose home is a stunning Georgian townhouse. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a ‘members only’ affair as the Society has happily flung open its doors far and wide so that anyone can rock up and enjoy what’s on offer. Even us! Since the recent refurb they’ve tucked the members bar on the top floor of the Society but there’s a lovely new bar downstairs and a dining room on the first floor that we were welcomed to discover.

dine out with TIGERLILY EDINBURGH
Tigerlily Edinburgh, there, I’ve said it. So what’s the first thing that comes to mind about Tigerlily? Could it be Gok Wan on the decks?! Yep, that’s happened recently…seriously. Could it be that they have one of the finest cocktail lists in town? Is it your Saturday afternoon post shopping destination for a quick drink before dinner? All of the above? Continue reading
