Field was our restaurant of choice for a celebration this weekend, and it was a good choice to make too. Gorgeous, well cooked food and a great wine list, plus good gluten free options. With a choice of a la carte or a set lunch, Field focuses on quality meat, but will also keep the veggies happy, with a range of meat, fish and vegetables. There was no GF bread on offer, but I was given a tiny bowl of olives to make up for it, which suited me well.
Puddings are always a bone of contention for the coeliac, but I found a choice of three and definitely chose well. An apple panacotta with peanut parfait and brittle plus an apple crisp, was just gorgeous. The mix of sweet and sour and a little bit tart, made this a great pudding. While my eye had wandered to the brownie option, it was not to be, but in the end I was glad – we all eat too much brownie and to have something unusual like this was so much better!
Field is a friendly little place with a definite focus on the food more than the decor. The service was terrific and although it was quiet, it didn’t seem to matter.
The set lunch or pre-theatre dinner represents superb value for money and offers a great way to taste some fine cooking. Add Field to your list of must-try restaurants in Edinburgh and you will not be disappointed.
