This is a popular group of Edinburgh restaurants that thrives on cooking Scottish produce at agreeable prices. The four branches have individual chefs who are all encouraged to develop their own style and dishes under the Howie’s umbrella. As a result, each will have its own menu, but a warm salad of black pudding, smoked bacon and sauté potato with a cider vinegar and honey dressing or a pan-fried pork tenderloin with colcannon, roast parsnips and Dijon mustard sauce would not look out of place in any of them. The premises are all light, airy and laid back. ‘Fine food without the faff’ is their motto, although if they added something about good value it would be just as appropriate – but rather less snappy. About £20 for a three course dinner.
