When Fred Berkmiller isn’t rustling up the likes of langoustine bisque or stuffed veal caillette in his charming French bistro, he’s exercising his green fingers at the Georgian Newtown Garden where all his restaurant’s vegetables and herbs are grown.

“When Fred Berkmiller isn’t rustling up the likes of langoustine bisque or stuffed veal caillette in his charming French bistro, he’s exercising his green fingers at the Georgian Newtown Garden where all his restaurant’s vegetables and herbs are grown. This passion for sustainability joins only the very best produce, including wild Scottish snails from the Isle of Barra and free-range duck from Gartmorn Farm by Alloa, translating into a flavoursome Scotland meets France style plate of food.

When I order a takeaway I like to try something that I can’t easily whip up at home and with my cooking skills that’s Fred’s entire menu. What’s particularly spectacular is L’Escargot Bleu’s steak tartare which is perfectly balanced with capers, onions and herbs. I’d start with this before moving on to a more decadent and rich main, such as the 24 hour low and slow coq au vin.”
