L'Escargot Blanc Restaurant


On the busy Queensferry Street, at number 17 exactly, seats L’Escargot Blanc restaurant, the sister restaurant to L'escargot Bleu' in Broughton Street in Edinburgh New Town.

We, Betty Jourjon & Fred Berkmiller, gave a contemporary feel to this lofty upstairs restaurant with French music playing in the background. Full size advertising posters adorn the walls accompanied by vintage monochrome photos. If you get a seat at the prime tables, next to many windows, you can dream of being in the Bohemian Latin Quarter or the rambling cosmopolitan Marais districts of Paris.

Mull over the menu with a glass of Apéritif Poire William or Ricard and you will find dishes that are simple, traditional and in rhythm of the seasons. Provenance is paramount. Nothing gets through the kitchen door unless directly sourced by Fred. Only one rule: quality, quality and quality. Two-thirds produced in Scotland, one-third imported from France, Fred knows how to dilate your palate.

Staff balance cast iron pots and plates with skills. Olivier Carles, manager at Blanc, will serve "Lapin chasseur" or "Poisson du jour"to hungry diners.

Welcome to L'escargot Blanc.
