Special celebration menu for First Coast 20 year anniversary

Dalry Road bistro First Coast celebrates 20 years

First Coast on Dalry Road in the West end of Edinburgh, is looking forward to taking a nostalgic culinary journey back through the last two decades.  

Plans for the anniversary include revisiting menus from over the years, with two special celebratory evenings, to be held at the bistro on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th March. The menu served is encapsulating some of First Coast’s well-remembered and favourite dishes, such as octopus, black rice & saffron aioli; osso buco, bone marrow risotto with purple sprouting broccoli & lemon gremolata, and a dish of deep fried whole gurnard with jasmine rice, sweet chilli, ginger & lime. 

“Our special anniversary evenings will be a nostalgic celebration of twenty years of our approach to food,” said First Coast’s Manager, Anna. “We are very excited and welcome any customers past or present getting in touch with their suggestions and recollections. We’d love to know what they have loved the most about First Coast over the years,” she said. Anna explained that a “First Coast at Home” 20th Anniversary Takeaway Menu would also be available at this time. 

“We’re a hive of small businesses here, with many genres of food represented in the local eateries, of which we are the most established. We use Throat Punch Coffee, an independent which is just along the road, and regularly buy ingredients from the local Thai and Mediterranean supermarkets.” 

First Coast will post more details on its 20th Anniversary Celebrations on its social media pages in the coming weeks.
