Back in March we started hearing about the hottest new restaurant in Edinburgh, The Table. It already had a lengthy waiting list and at a fairly steep price of £70pp we decided this would be a perfect venue for our first meal out in Edinburgh as a married couple at the beginning of August. We had a few days off after our honeymoon so we booked for the Thursday night. They only offer one sitting per night at 7pm but with 10 hours of prep time for the chefs and a 7 course meal to deliver, I’m surprised they can even offer this!
‘TEN SEATS, TWO CHEFS, ONE TABLE’
The restaurant is lovely, although it is more like sitting in someone’s fancy kitchen – 10 seats are all they offer, lined along the bar which overlooks the kitchen. Basically, the two chefs prep and cook everything literally 2 feet in front of you throughout the (up to) four hours you’re there.
So did it live up to the hype?
Dinner at the Table isn’t just a meal out. The whole evening is a wonderfully delicious, interactive experience from start to finish…
