54 Saint Stephen Street, EDINBURGH, EH3 5AL
The Stockbridge is a charming restaurant, accessed down a flight of steps, in the affluent area it's named after. Dark-grey walls, some stone, are hung with vivid modern artwork and mirrors, and spotlights in the low ceiling create pools of light on crisply-clothed tables with upholstered chairs. The cooking goes from strength to strength, with the kitchen producing consistently well-conceived dishes from fine Scottish produce. Seared scallops with Serrano ham, butternut squash pur?e, apple salsa and caramelised walnuts, or chorizo and red pepper risotto flaked with parmesan are the sort of modern ideas that crop up among starters. A lot can go on in main courses, but an assured touch means flavours are clean and well defined. Try perfectly cooked grilled halibut fillet served with crayfish and scallop mousse, braised beef cheeks, crushed potatoes, spinach and red wine jus, for instance, or roast duck breast with a foie gras boudin, a confit spring roll, chicory and potato terrine. A pre-dessert arrives before the real thing, which might be a theme on chocolate: rich br?l?e, brownie, mousse and ice cream.
