SpoonA fun, relaxed spot on Edinburgh’s Southside, Spoon exists to fill the “gap between the casualness of a café and the formality of a restaurant.” It’s also known as the place where J.K. Rowling toiled away on Harry Potter as an undiscovered writer. Come here for wholesome, hearty food like poached salt cod with baby potatoes, and flatiron steak with cannellini beans, chorizo, and fried egg. While menus change regularly, you can always count on fresh, seasonal fare prepared with chef Richard Alexander’s classically trained, perfectionist touch.
