Before we say anything else, despite the new Spring menu, Bread Street Kitchen’s amazing chocolate fondant is still on the menu, so everyone can relax now. Chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant has introduced a new seasonal menu, so, of course, we went to try it, just in time for Mother’s Day on March 19.
Located at St Andrew Square, Bread Street Kitchen & Bar is a place of casual excellence, where familiar British cuisine meets modern touches. The restaurant is also the only Scottish venue and celebrated its first birthday in November 2022. And fairly recently, Chef Gordon Ramsay opened a welcome additions to the Edinburgh street food scene: Gordon Ramsay Street Burger and Gordon Ramsay Street Pizza, where guests can indulge in bottomless pizza.
When you go to a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, you know you’re going to get splendid food and attentive service, and we experienced just that at Bread Street Kitchen this Spring. Guests can choose from a wide selection of meat dishes such as the Beef Wellington, large cuts or meat from the grill, as well as lighter options like sushi, fish, salads and other mains.
While the restaurant is best known amongst meat lovers, vegetarians are also well thought of when it comes to the menu options. The Baked Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni, or the Burata with red pepper pesto, basil and pane carasau will fire those taste buds right up.
And for the meaty mains, we went for the Dry-Aged Rib-Eye Steak with peppercorn sauce and honey roasted carrots. The meat was as tender as expected and the honey roasted carrots add the perfect sweet touch to the dance of flavours.
The Roasted Cod with crushed potatoes, artichoke and capers, topped with red wine and lemon sauce was as fresh as Spring itself. The perfectly balanced flavour and texture of the dish brought back memories of Isle of Skye, where the seafood is fresh and life just seems easier.
And if you can still manage dessert after all the eating, the chocolate fondant will be forever in our hearts.
The brand new cocktail Spring menu is just as exciting at Bread Street Kitchen: a special section just for Spritzes. Mums love a good spritz, and so do we, so we went for the Sicilian Spritz with Malfy Arancia Blood Orange Gin, Select Aperitivo, Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic and FIOL prosecco. The Japanese G&T is also an absolute (bright green) treat, with KiNoBi Kyoto Dry Gin, Midori melon liqueur, lime and Fever Tree Indian tonic.
No wonder it took Chef Gordon Ramsay a year to create the Spring menu for Bread Street Kitchen. Hence, it’s the perfect way to show your mum some extra love this Sunday and beyond.
