EDIBLE GLIMPSES: Robert Burns Night

Robert Burns Night—held each January 25 in honor of the 1759 birth of Scotland’s most famous poet–is a spirited celebration filled with whiskey, haggis, kilts and poetry. Read more about the annual fest here in our current issue.

Our First Burns Supper Reminds us that the Haggis Doesn’t Have to Come But Once a Year

Last Wednesday we had the pleasure of reporting on our first-ever Robert Burns Night Supper at Mary Queen of Scots, a beautifully appointed Scottish gastro-tavern in the old Allen and Delancey space. Burns is a beloved Scottish poet, January 25th is his birthday, and MQOS is a Scottish place owned by trio who hail from Great Britain. Like all good Scots who run Manhattan restaurants, they host a special dinner on Burns Nicht for what is a national holiday celebrated nearly everywhere in Scotland and even Northern Ireland.
