Edinburgh’s ever buzzy Broughton Street has a new culinary resident.
Pickles of Broughton Street has replaced L’epicerie which used to trade underneath L’escargot Bleu restaurant.
Pickles, preserves and pates served with wines, beers and soft drinks seems to be the very civilised thrust of the place.
‘Purveyors of prestigious pickles, pies, preserves and port’ is how the venture sells itself.
Bowls of olives, cheesy balls, pickled eggs and mini pork pies come under the heading of pickles and pieces while the pate selection includes chicken liver with Armagnac, ostrich, wild boar and venison.
£20 will set you up with a bottle of house wine and a cheese platter while £25 will get you a cheese platter and a bottle of the house port.
Pies and quiches are also part of the Pickles offer.
