Fodor's Expert Review Galvin Brasserie de Luxe

$$$ New Town French Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This Parisian-style brasserie combines handsome surroundings with first-class cuisine from London brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin. Dapper waiters glide around the cavernous dining area with its central bar, while the menu marries classic French dishes alongside Scottish staples, so you should expect everything from steak tartare and duck terrine to smoked salmon and peppery haggis. On Sundays, enjoy traditional and hearty options like slow-roasted beef brisket with trimmings. The desserts are sublime, the wine list is extensive, and the staff knowledgeable. This is a very family-friendly restaurant, thanks to its varied children's menus. Kids under 10 have a free lunch on weekends.
