Henri's in Stockbridge

03/04/2012

Following a total refurbishment Henri's of Edinburgh in Stockbridge, Edinburgh now has a buzzy new place to enjoy provencal style food and wine.

Available are French cheeses, charcuterie and an eclectic and wide selection of wines, most of which will also be available by the glass due to the verre de vin system of keeping wine fresh.

Henri has one of the best selection of organic and bio-dynamic wines in Edinburgh (90% of which are exclusive to the capital) with a small range of natural wines which contain absolutely no sulphur dioxide. Most of the wines are produced by small regional vineyards in France, Spain and Italy.

Wines can be chosen to drink with meals with a corckage charge of £5.00.

Also in the alcohol department is beer from the Brasserie du Mont Blanc, one of the purest beers in the world which is brewed with glacier water from 2,000m and the extremely tasty Chamberyzette wild strawberry vermouth.

There will be four main seasonal menus, with as many daily specials. The food is based on continental style including soups, tarts, salads, charcuterie, frittata, rillettes and baked cheese.

Henri is also an exclusive stockist of Arnaud Soubeyran Nougat de Montelimar, La Belle Iloise fish soups from Brittany, Clermont l'Hérault olive oil and olives, Le Comptoir de Mathilde mustards, Savour Baba chocolates, jams and conserves from Epicurien in the Languedoc and patés, confit, cassoulet and rillettes from Dupérier near Bordeaux as well as fresh French bread every day of the week.

By taking time to visit small producers in their homeland, Henri owner Simon Lloyd sources the highest quality of cheeses and charcuterie which has established the shop as the French specialist in Scotland.

Henri Stockbridge, 48 Raeburn Place, EH4 1HL (0131 332 8963)

Opening times: Mon- Fri: 9.00am - 8.00pm Sat: 9.00am - 7.00pm Sun: 9.30am - 6.00pm
