Street food festival and cocktail cinema at Edinburgh Restaurant Festival

Street food festival and cocktail cinema at Edinburgh Restaurant Festival

A pizza-making bar in the middle of the Grassmarket and a pop-up cinema with film-inspired cocktails are among the line-up at this year’s Edinburgh Restaurant Festival.

Taking place from October 8-18, over 30 of the capital’s restaurants will level their prices to offer three-course set lunch for £15 and a three-course dinner for £25 with the likes of Hadrian’s Brasserie at the Balmoral, Jamie’s Italian and the Tower Restaurant & Terrace all signed up.

As part of the foodie celebrations, a number of events will be popping up around the city such as the Grassmarket Fun Foodie Day on October 10 where a free pizza bar will be set up for families to make their own Italian favourite and a crepe art event for those with a sweet tooth.

A street food festival is also planned for St Andrew Square between October 16 and 18, with restaurant chefs taking on the challenge of cooking in a street-food style and serving their mini restaurant meals for £5.

If you fancy a bit of a foodie feast, the Chefs’ Table event is also returning this year on October 8 with chefs with Paul Wedgwood, Craig Hart and Mark Greenaway joining together to create a £25 one-off menu for the night using Scottish ingredients.

It is not all about the food though with some cinema viewings accompanied by cocktails at Harvey Nichols’ Movies & Shakers on October 13 and a beer and food matching event with Fallen Brewery and Gait Bar & Kitchen on October 15.

John Donnelly, Marketing Edinburgh’s chief executive, says the festival is a great way to show off the fact that Edinburgh has more restaurants per head of population than anywhere else in the UK.

“Edinburgh’s reputation for food and drink is second to none, from Michelin star establishments, to pop-up dining and high-end street food. The Edinburgh Restaurant Festival gives us an opportunity to go to town and celebrate this variety and diversity, as well as showcasing the quality experiences on offer,” he said.

“With more restaurants per head of population than anywhere else in the UK, there is a lot to choose from, so the carefully curated event programme and affordable set menus give foodies a chance to sample the wares of a whole host of top restaurants, while meeting some of the people and chefs working hard behind the scenes.”
