New restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh
New restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh: Finn and Bear – if you go down to Leith today, you’re in for a big surprise.

Have you heard all about the latest new restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh?

Thanks to a dedicated army of highly trained observers and decades of insider experience, the 5pm Dining blog is always first to tell you about the latest new restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Except for the times when someone else gets there first.


All being well, today should see the launch of Finn and Bear in  Edinburgh.

Offering brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks, it is a new venture on The Shore in Leith.

It is the third offering from the team behind The Pantry outlets in Stockbridge and Colinton.

LA eggs

At the time of writing, they have still to release their menus. However, we understand that the daytime menu will be similar to those in Stockie and Colinton.

This means brunch dishes like LA eggs – chunky toast, smashed avocado, roasted pepper pico de gallo and a poached, free range hen’s egg.

Other options might be the waffles with various toppings or one of their many variations on eggs Benedict.

As the day moves on, the menu switches up to dishes like the ox cheek tacos or the home-smoked pork butt. The latter comes with sweet potato fries, ‘kraut and blueberry BBQ mop sauce.

A veggie choice might be the roasted cauliflower steak, toasted cashew and yellow pepper, sheep curds and herby crumbs.

While the day menu will be available from opening, the evening menu will be introduced from Friday 16th February.

Bear and Finn is setting up home at 58 The Shore which, until recently, was home to the Salvation of Leith.

Next up in today’s edition of the blockbuster blog post New restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh is Angelini’s Pizza in Glasgow.

Located on Greenock Road, when it opens, it will be an ‘artisan pizzeria and café’.

According to their website, the café will be dishing up Italian coffee, panini and pastries from 8am to 4pm. After that, the kitchen starts knocking out sourdough pizza and traditional pasta dishes.
