5 days in Edinburgh over New Years
Any suggestions for pub food, good cheap eats, snacks, mid-range lunches and dinners, and one splurge dinner? A few cozy places would be great. And recommendations for New Years (I think we are doing the Ceildih (sp?)) but open to suggestions.
Also, any particluarly chowish neighborhoods that would be good for an apartment rental?
Valvona & Crolla (on the Leith Road) is probably the best Italian deli in the UK. They serve lunch (and now dinner, I believe) there.
