Say hello to the new kid on the block as all-day dining steakhouse Bar + Block gets set to launch on Princes Street, Edinburgh’s main shopping street, just in time for Christmas.
Opening on 13th December, savour sirloin, ribeye, and fillet as the stylish steakhouse and cocktail bar serves up an extensive range of high-quality steaks, handmade burgers and grazing plates, alongside creative cocktails, and craft brews.
Whether you’re looking for a beefed-up breakfast, lunch or dinner, diners can expect a menu that’s a cut above the rest. What’s more, be one of the first through the door and enjoy 25% off food from 13th December – just sign up at https://www.barandblock.co.uk/en-gb/signup to receive a voucher (valid for six months) and secure your spot.
Carnivorous cravings will be satisfied with an ever-changing selection of quality steaks prepared for you by expert chefs on-site. All Bar + Block’s steaks, from rump to ribeye, fillet to sirloin, are selected from British and Irish Angus breeds renowned for their taste, tenderness and the unique marbling that runs throughout each cut. Every steak is matured for at least 30 days and hand cut to size, matching your appetite.
There’s a host of speciality signature steaks, in addition to the classic cuts, including the 10oz Spiral Cut Fillet, created by spiral cutting the steak and marinating it in garlic and parsley for 24 hours; the Surf + Turf, an 8oz sirloin with garlic jumbo king prawns; or if you’re really struggling to choose, the Steak Sampler – three 4oz steaks, sirloin, fillet and rump. Whatever steak tantalises your tastebuds, each comes with a choice of sauce, including a creamy whisky, mushroom and peppercorn sauce, and house salad or beef dripping triple-cooked chunky chips. December will also see a Butcher’s Block special of Chateaubriand, slow-grilled until tender and available to share between two until January 2022.
As well as steaks, Bar + Block is big on burgers with every patty hand-ground, freshly prepared on-site and cooked to order. The must-try is the signature Mighty Block Burger – an 8oz beef burger with melted mature Cheddar cheese sauce, crispy onions, pulled beef brisket, pickled cucumber spear and burger sauce, served in a brioche bun with French fries.
Also on the menu is a range of grills, salads, sensational sides and sharing grazing plates, including the Talisker Whisky glazed BBQ wings, brand new and exclusive to the Edinburgh restaurant.
For vegetarians and flexitarians, plant-based options include Cauliflower Wings in a crunchy parsley-seasoned batter and the Vegan Sloppy Joe Burger – a plant-based Garden Gourmet patty topped with cheezy vegan slice and soya vegan sloppy joe mix.
Finish off on a sweet note with decadent desserts like the new signature Shortbread sundae especially developed for Edinburgh – Scottish shortbread layered with vanilla ice cream, freshly whipped cream, muddled berries, and fresh strawberries. There’s also a Sticky Toffee Pudding, Chocolate + hazelnut bomb and vegan Chocolate torte to indulge in.
The Sunday Best roast is great for lazy lunches where you can choose from sliced rump, or half a chicken served with Yorkies and all the trimmings.
