Stuart and I worked together in New York some 12 years ago.
We have stayed in contact, when I moved back to the UK 3 years ago his restaurant went on my list of places to visit.
I took my Dad to Edinburgh for a Father’s Day treat.. Aizle was our first stop.
I was so excited to take my Dad to restaurant that was led by a chef on top of his game.
Aizle has been open 5 years now, Stuart and his wife Crystal have created something very special, with heart and soul.
Stuart has a similar concept to Food by JL, no menu, seasonal and using produce based on what a available locally. So it all resonated...
The food was inventive, tasty and full of life and ambition.
He is a proper Scottish chef, big flavours with hearty cooking and lots of love being transferred into his food.
If you are in Edinburgh you have to go https://www.aizle.co.uk/
He is soon to open a more casual place with the same ethos.
Well done mate, proud of you and all your achievements.
