Edinburgh’s Creative Scene Uncovered

In my personal opinion, I don’t know if enough is made of Edinburgh’s innovative and creative scene.

Everything seems to be focused on looking backwards to the city’s decorated past and iconic heritage. Of course, we should not ignore the fantastic history – far from it – it should be endorsed and celebrated.

Yet, I feel the modern innovators and creators within the city are stifled by traditionalism, and the ever-present concept of Edinburgh possessing an extremely archaic nucleus, membrane and outer-wall.

I want to break down these walls and open your eyes to Edinburgh’s more off the wall projects, whilst acting as your informant on Edinburgh’s secret contemporary identity. There’s more to this wonderful city than meets the eye and so I’ve taken it upon myself to broaden your horizons as best I can.

Edinburgh Colour
I want to help you discover, or rediscover, Edinburgh’s colourful and innovative side!

You may ask where this has all this come from?

Well, I’ve recently started working at a restaurant where food boundaries are pushed, culinary rules are somewhat bent and the whole experience is refreshingly modern.

Question: Have you ever been to a restaurant that puts your culinary skills to the test? Where you’re invited to don the proverbial Chef’s hat and become the master of your own meat? Well if not listen up. And if you have you may as well listen too!

Cooking thinly sliced and succulent Steak on a hot lava stone doesn’t really shout traditional dining but this restaurant’s rustic edge fits the Edinburgh night scene rather well.

What’s more, restaurants often um and ah about how to create that perfect ambiance: is it by playing atmospheric music, or by choosing a room with the perfect acoustics..?

No such problems present themselves for Steak on Stones. It’s an interactive environment that encourages engagement, and its ‘sharing is caring’ vibe is the source of an organic, conversation filled ambiance.

I can imagine this sort of restaurant thriving in Brooklyn, New York, where trends are constantly being set, rules purposely broken and innovation trumping inertia. It’s a city whose inhabitants and ideas never sleep!

I want to be the one to show you that Edinburgh, although pragmatic in its progression, does contain contemporary aspects and an edge to its very rounded status quo.

My new place of work represents this cultural revolution – all the perks of fine dining, such as trendy cocktails, beautiful wines and food to die for – yet it throws a cat amongst the pigeons in the way it allows you to sizzle your meat to your own personal perfection.

I suggest you visit Steak on Stones…
