Contemporary, relaxed sharing dining. Bib Gourmand - The Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2017. Also, opening soon - IG: BABAedinburgh
The Team at Ox and Finch are delighted to announce that we are opening a new restaurant @babaedinburgh in October 2017.
BABA’s mezze, charcoal grill and cocktail bar; inspired by the flavours of the Eastern Med.; will be located at 130 George Street in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic New Town.
A bespoke charcoal grill will be the centrepiece of BABA’s open kitchen, where carefully-sourced Scottish lamb, beef and seafood are spiced and grilled - Levantine-style - over coals, side by side with whole cauliflowers and harissa pumpkin.
Traditional mezze; hummus with zhug, baba ganoush and muhammara; will be served alongside our twist-on-the-traditional: beetroot, hazelnut, orange and whipped feta, smoked salmon and keta taramasalata with pickled cucumber, and kibbeh pastry - given a Scottish signature at BABA - with haggis replacing the customary lamb.
Pickles, pomegranate, rose, za’atar, spices and molasses will be as present behind the bar as they are in the kitchen at BABA. In front of artwork of a recumbent, lounging hookah smoker - Mr. BABA is his name - our bar team will mix cocktails, including apricot, mint, cumin and honey; BABAllini; pistachio, chocolate and mint julep; and sumac and Persian white limeade.
