21212 – Review

Value for money

Edinburgh Fine Dining Edinburgh Edinburghs best restaurants Edinburgh Edinburghs best restaurants in EdinburghWe were delighted when we were invited to visit and write a 21212 review because the way the menu’s been designed allows for the chef’s flair to shine through.

21212 gets its name from its menu.  There’s a choice of 2 starters, a soup, a choice of 2 main courses, cheese and a choice of 2 desserts.  This is ideal if, like me, you find your fork hovering over other people’s plates (sharing is caring as my dining partner said – until we reached the dessert, when crème brulee proved to be an emotion too far!)

Chef Paul Kitching is known for his unique style of cooking and each dish contains a myriad of flavours.  From the silky smoothness and intense flavours of the soup to the mouthwateringly succulent chicken and the exquisite dessert each course delicately dances across your taste buds before building to culinary pachyderm parade.

Of course the menu contains all the refinements you’d expect from a fine dining restaurant, but Kitching’s sense of fun is peeking out from around the corner, with little additions such as milk infused with oats and the most delicate hint of cinnamon poured from an old fashion creamer (a china cow) as a palate cleanser.

The high ceilings and modern decor combine with sumptuous banquettes and decadent twists to give a warm yet airy feel to the dining room, from where you can see through to the meticulous preparation in the kitchen.

The overall experience justifies the anticipation of the event – true fine dining in the most exquisite of settings, this is a real favourite of ours!
