"Deciding Time" is a pre-dinner feature at this little restaurant at the bottom of the Royal Mile—a diplomatic device to help indecisive diners by plying them with champagne and canapés. But then if grey squirrel is on the menu, which it sometimes is, you might want a little time to think about it. Paul Wedgwood opened his eponymous fine dining — but thankfully not too formal — restaurant in 2007. The décor is a little bland and won't win any awards, but the food has done. Wedgwood is a regular forager, and popular dishes include panko- and black sesame-crusted mullet and scallops wrapped in caul fat. For dessert, alchemy comes into play with dishes such as a honeyed parsnip crème brulee, or a Carroun gin, pink pepper, rhubarb, and vanilla trifle.
