Nestled in a stylish basement below the iconic Balmoral Hotel, the emblematic Number One restaurant is a culinary crossroad between the classic and the inventive. The stylish eatery has retained its Michelin star since 2003, a testament to its commitment to gourmet dining. Head chef Brian Grigor transforms Scottish classics such as smoked salmon into mind-blowing culinary experiences. August marks the start of grouse season, so you can expect to see Grigor’s famous game dishes on the menu from the Glorious 12th –the first official day of the season in Scotland.
Top dish: Finish your meal with the spectacularly reinvented Valrhona chocolate tart.
