Famous for his experimental approach to fine dining, acclaimed chef Paul Kitching has made his Edinburgh restaurant a place where creativity and flavour collide. The menu perfectly captures Kitching’s take on contemporary French cuisine, featuring wonderfully delirious concoctions that are a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds. 21212 won its Michelin star in 2009 and has been at the forefront of Edinburgh’s gourmet restaurant scene since.
Top dish: The seasonal menu changes weekly, but a signature dish might be a tantalising lemon tart with glazed curds and blueberry compote – the perfect summer dessert.
