Regular readers will know that we have already written about The Lookout, the recently launched, Edinburgh restaurant from the team behind The Gardener's Cottage and Quay Commons.

As per previous blogs, you can view the menu here but we have now got our mitts on lots of pics which show off the restaurant's eye-catching location jutting out from the northwest slope of Calton Hill.

As well as the main pic above, we have posted a number of them at the foot of this post.

Bross Bagels get festive

In other news, Bross Bagels on Leith Walk has now opened an upstairs sit-in space. And it looks very cosy.

As Mama Bross, a.k.a. The Bagel Lady, notes 'No longer do you have to eat your bagels out in the chilly, winter cold of Leith Walk but sit leisurely in our warm, snug dining area and fill your festive hole till your tinsel tummy is content.'

Following the runaway success of the original in Portobello, the Leith Walk branch of Boss Bagels opened earlier this year.

Both aim to pull in bagel-lovers with a limited edition festive bagel. Priced at £5.50, the Noel bagel is filled with turkey, maple-glazed bacon, sage and onion latke (stuffing in their Porty shop) and complete with slaw, mayo and cranberry relish. They will also have a vegetarian version made with Sgaia’s vegan bacon.

Apparently, Lara Bross' Montreal-style bagels are so popular that a third branch is to open on Queensferry Street in about eight days time.

Drink with a Little Rascal

You may recall that we previously mentioned that Little Rascal wine bar was taking shape in Corstorphine.

That was way back in July and, although we kept popping back to check on their Facebook page, it kinda slipped our mind.

Well, as it turns out, Little Rascal, the sister restaurant to the Good Brothers wine bar in Stockbridge, opened their doors in September.

If you are on or around St John's Road and in the market for natural wines, decent beer, charcuterie and Mellis cheese then you know where to go.

Pizza Geeks carve a slice of Dalry Road

On a similarly tardy note, it appears that Pizza Geeks have made the journey from pop-up to permanent and opened a pizza joint on Dalry Road in October.

If you like your dough proved for 48 hours and cooked Neapolitan style then the geeks can feed your fantasies.

Right, here are those Lookout pics we promised:
