Gastro Taverns, the bar and restaurant group formed by managing director Julian Mobbs last August, has today (09.05.08) opened The Flaming Kilt Scottish grill restaurant, cocktail bar and deli on Kirkcaldy’s High Street and Esplanade.
Conceived to be particularly female-friendly and attractive to couples, The Flaming Kilt brings a little bit of the city to Kirkcaldy with an offering unavailable elsewhere in the town, including a mouth-watering menu made up of farm fresh food purchased, where possible, within a 40 mile radius.
Mr Mobbs said, “I fell in love with the site for The Flaming Kilt because of its beautiful sea views and knew that it was the perfect location for a Scottish grill restaurant serving quality local produce at readily affordable prices. And given the abundance of farmers on our doorstep, there has been no difficulty in sourcing suppliers for our comprehensive range of grilled foods.
“We use all local Scottish ingredients where possible and are firm supporters of local farmers and fish merchants. Amongst our specialist suppliers at The Flaming Kilt are Puddledub Pork and Buffalo, Fletchers of Auchtermuchty and David Lowrie fish merchants.”
Located at 282 High Street, Kirkcaldy, The Flaming Kilt has 80 covers and leads through from a small deli offering fresh local farm produce for customers to pick up and take away for lunch or to enjoy later that evening, through to the main dining area where the centrepiece is a vast open grill, and an elevated area offering sea views to the rear.
The grill menu features such items as: Puddledub buffalo steak; Aberdeen Angus sirloin steak; Auchtermuchty venison steak marinated in sherry; pork loin with blackened pineapple;
