Fhior, Broughton Street, Ed­in­burgh Out of my price bracket, with overly cere­bral food chem­istry that doesn’t do it for me 5/10 Rossini, Hyn­d­land Street, Glas­gow A proper, fam­ily-run Pugliese restau­rant. Sen­sa­tional street food 8.5/10 Non Viet Hai, Glas­gow Not bad at all, but could be bet­ter still. The waiter was ex­cep­tion­ally help­ful. 8/10 Mack­in­tosh At The Wil­low, Glas­gow A “to­tal joy”. Af­ter­noon tea and light lunches; won­der­ful sur­round­ings 8/10 Ed­in­burgh Food Stu­dio, Ed­in­burgh This “sen­sa­tional” crowd- funded restau­rant serves Scot­tish pro­duce, “won­der­ful bread”. 10/10 The Wee Restau­rant, Ed­in­burgh At­trac­tive menu du jour, two good cour­ses for £16, from lo­cal sup­pli­ers 7.5/10 Mezzi­dakia, Glas­gow East­ern Mediter­ranean food but a venue “brim­ming with mis­placed con­fi­dence” 3.5/10 Hawksmoor, Ed­in­burgh A steak­house that serves gen­er­ous por­tions and scores on fish and veg, as well as meat 8.5/10 Five March, Glas­gow A chef who re­ally un­der­stands fam­ily trees of in­gre­di­ents, their flavour po­ten­tial and lim­its, mak­ing food bet­ter 10/10 Joanna Blythman is the Guild of Food Writ­ers Food Writer of the Year 2018
