Frontier is a new American place which has just opened on Gillespie Place in Edinburgh.
The brainchild of the people who run Mum’s Great Comfort Food on Forrest Road, the menus promise all sorts of diet-busting dishes.
We’re talking pulled pork potato skins, lemon shallot crab cakes, stuffed jalapenos, ribs, hot dogs, carnitas, cat fish and ‘the great American mac ‘n’ cheese’.
Diners can wash it all down with American small batch beers, sipping tequilas and lots of bourbon.
July opening for ENZO
Sticking with Edinburgh, ENZO is taking shape in the Quartermile development. An Italian style bar restaurant, the project aims to open towards the end of July.
A press release from the company reckons that the independently owned business will be ‘stylish and modern yet quite different from any other that the city has to offer’.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, ENZO will have a courtyard area for al fresco dining and drinks.
According to their website, ENZO will have ‘echoes of the great Italian restaurants around the world like Trattoria Del-arta in New York, Sarti in LA, and Novokov and El Burata in London – restaurants that are not trying to reinvent Italian food, but present it the way it should be served; simple, mouth watering and of the highest quality’.
Make way for the Duchess
In Glasgow, The Duchess of Duke Street has opened on… well, we probably don’t need to spell it out.
The Dennistoun bar and kitchen is offering a modern bar menu that ranges from ham hock parfait and classic sarnies to burgers, dogs, salads and a three cheese macaroni.
