Description
In Scotland, the traditional way of cooking is to create simple dishes, built around one great ingredient. Contrast Brasserie is no different. From succulent rare breed pork or prime dry-aged beef to locally grown market vegetables and fresh fish from sustainable we try to stay true to our Scottish roots. With a sharp focus on Scottish, locally sourced produce, Contrast Brasserie is a refreshing addition to the Inverness restaurant scene. Located a short walk along the river the city centre and across from Eden Court Theatre, it's the perfect lunch, pre-theatre and dinner destination.
