The Pompadour celebrates the end of the festival with a bang

Posted: 9th August 2018

The Pompadour by Galvin, Head Chef, Daniel Ashmore has designed a very special menu to ensure the perfect finale for the end of this year’s Edinburgh International and Fringe Festivals. On Monday 27th August ahead of the firework display in Princes Street Gardens, The Pompadour will be serving a sparkling seven course tasting menu that will certainly guarantee the festival goes out with a bang.

Highlights from the Firework Dinner tasting menu that will send sparks flying include:

  • Raviolo of scallops & langoustines, oyster & chive dressing and iceberg lettuce
  • Pepper glazed Goosnargh duck, orange, turnip and confit leg
  • Dark chocolate parfait, Scottish blackberries and blackberry leaf ice cream

Following dinner guests will be invited to take a front row seat to watch the award-winning firework display illuminate the sky. Guests will be able to enjoy the stunning views of the fireworks from the large Castle-facing windows in the restaurant.

Typically, The Pompadour is closed on Mondays, however Daniel and his team intend to light up everyone’s night on the 27th with an unforgettable and truly exceptional menu.

Dale MacPhee, General Manager at Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian, said: “The Fireworks Dinner will be a unique opportunity to enjoy an exclusive evening of exquisite food and wine followed by a spectacular view of the fireworks. The Pompadour is definitely the perfect spot to view the display and celebrate the end of another amazing festival – a memorable occasion not to be missed.”

The menu is priced at £125 per person and there is the option of adding wine pairings that have been hand-selected by Sommelier, Damien Trinckquel for an additional £75 per person.
