Forage & Chatter
Tucked away in Edinburgh’s West End you’ll find Forage & Chatter, a truly unique destination serving exceptional modern Scottish food. Using produce sourced locally and placing strong emphasis on foraged ingredients, the team showcases the best that Scotland has to offer at surprisingly reasonable prices.
The decor fuses contemporary style with traditional touches – think exposed stone walls, Balmoral tweed upholstery and rustic wooden furniture. In keeping with the restaurant’s focus on foraging, leafy potted plants adorn the various nooks and crannies inside.
Those dining may start with delights such as mushroom Carpaccio with goat’s cheese and herbs, or liver parfait, parsnip, endive and honey. Follow with the sensational monkfish accompanied by squid ink barley and sea vegetables, or succulent roasted lamb rump served with sweetbreads, carrot and fennel. Dessert offerings are equally sumptuous, with the likes of Valrhona Dulcey mousse complemented by Scottish raspberries, sorbet and white chocolate, and Alunga chocolate ganache served with orange and cocoa nibs.
Since opening in late 2016, Forage & Chatter has received consistently glowing reviews and has gained an enviable reputation for serving some of Edinburgh’s, if not Scotland’s, finest food. A visit here will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression, for all the right reasons.
