The Crescent Supper Club

An innovative, creative and exciting way to dine out in edinburgh. Watch this space for upcoming events and news or contact us at crescentdining@gmail.com

Here are some of the photos from our Innis and Gunn Beer and Food Matching Supper Club. It was a great evening, the beer was flowing and people really got into the idea of tasting it alongside the different courses. I hope we showed that the right beer is as good as wine when paired with the right flavours. A big thank you to all our lovely guests and also to Innis and Gunn for providing such an interesting selection of beers to experiment with. Until next time…

The final weekend of August saw our final push of the festival supper club evenings. Both nights were filled with groups who booked out the whole place which made for a great atmosphere, and we got great feedback on the food.

We want to send a massive thank you to everyone who came and ate with us over this opening period, and also to all those who supported us in various ways. It was hard work and it was you who made it really worth while!

And whilst this is the end of us operating with such frequency, this is certainly not the end of us forever! We will be back after a short break, so watch this space for The Crescent Dining Supper Clubs upcoming events.

August 12th and 13th

Another couple of successful nights this weekend, both with a delicious veal escalope as the main. We were also blessed with a couple celebrating their 17th wedding anniversary at their first ever supper club - very touchedthat they chose our supper club as their venue and thankfully they loved it!

From one Supper Club to another..

On Saturday I had the great pleasure of representing The Crescent Supper Club at My Home Supper Club’s ” Indian Summer Vegetarian Feast ” evening. Calum and Jethro were holding the fort at my flat with guests of our own, so my friend and I set off in the pouring Edinburgh rain to taste the delights to be served up by Aiofe and her guest chef Meena.

We were welcomed into their lovely flat by Damian and Aiofe offering us a very pretty cocktail, which was based on grapefruit vodka, delicious!

Once all the guests arrived we were served the first tasty bite, Dohkra with chutney and pretty little puri, it was so delicious, we couldn’t wait to see what would come next!

The starter was Chaana Chat, which was yummy too, but I cant tell you what was in it! The main of Tomato and Aubergine curry and Sag Paneer was served on our plates but the cumin potatoes ,chutney and dahl were served in lovely dishes for us to hand round and share, which added to the relaxed atmosphere. Everyone loved it all and one of the guests , Eddie, could not get enough of the cumin potatoes!

The  creamy dessert was served in tea cups, a lovely end to the best indian food I have eaten in along time! Then a second dessert called Falooda arrived in cocktail glasses!

Meena, Aiofe’s friend from Mumbai, who helped her cook,is opening her own supper club very soon. That too will be worth a try! Watch out for it soon.
