Two award-winning family-run restaurants are encouraging families to spend quality time together during the May bank holiday weekends with the introduction of a Little VIPs package.
When dining at Edinburgh’s Otro and New Chapter restaurants, little ones will be treated to an exciting pick and mix menu so they can choose their favourite meal, and will even get a goody bag full of treats to keep them entertained.
The new Make Your Own Meal menu will allow kids to select their choice of main – including fish fingers, chicken breast or veggie tomato pasta – along with a portion of buttered new potatoes or hand-cut chips, peas or green beans, and apple or orange juice. All for £9, little ones can mix and match their preferred elements to create their perfect dish.
The unique menu has been designed to empower children to make their own choices, encouraging a positive relationship with food.
Little ones will no longer have to push veggies they don’t like to the side of their plate – family dinners out will now be a great experience for even the fussiest of eaters.
In their goody bags, Little VIPs will find plenty to keep them busy while the adults enjoy their meal, including stickers, colouring paper, pencils, crayons, craft kits and biscuits.
Grown-up members of the party can dine from Otro and New Chapter’s delicious a la carte menus, both of which are packed full of stunning seasonal dishes such as rump of lamb with crispy lamb belly, grilled hispi cabbage, wild garlic and cockles, and pan-seared king scallops with coconut curry sauce, papaya and wild rice salad.
The Little VIPs package will be available during both May bank holiday weekends, from Friday 3 to Monday 6 May and Friday 24 to Monday 27 May. All diners under the age of 12 will receive a complimentary goody bag when dining from the new menu. The Make Your Own Meal menu will then become a permanent feature at both restaurants.
Matthew Korecki, owner of Otro and New Chapter, said: ‘As a family-run business, we’re always delighted to welcome families to our restaurants. The upcoming bank holiday weekends are a great opportunity to spend some time together, so we wanted to make it nice and easy for parents to treat their kids to a special day out.
‘We hope the Little VIPs enjoy the new menu we’ve created for them, giving them the chance to try out new dishes and discover the food they really love.’
The Little VIPs package is available at Otro and New Chapter from 3-6 May and 24-27 May 2019. The Make Your Own Meal menu will be available permanently at both restaurants from 3 May 2019.
