Chef Mark Greenaway To Open Second Restaurant in Stockbridge
Award-winning chef Mark Greenaway today revealed his plans to open a second restaurant in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge. Due to open in early December the new venture, called Bistro Moderne by Mark Greenaway, will be housed in the recently-closed Café Fish on North West Circus Place.
The award-winning chef said:
“I’ve been looking for suitable opportunities for a second restaurant in Edinburgh for a while now. The Bistro will offer simpler versions of my restaurant dishes as well as introducing some new styles of food from my repertoire, all served in a friendly and relaxed setting.”
Bistro Moderne will take the classic French bistro concept and revitalise it by adding imaginative dishes, a dessert bar and a 5-course grazing menu matched with whisky, beer and spirits to showcase drinks produced in Scotland.
“I’ll be using the same fresh Scottish ingredients that I use at Restaurant Mark Greenaway, just treating them slightly differently. And because Bistro will be open on a Sunday we’ll be serving amazing roasts of Aberdeen Angus beef and chicken. I’m quite excited about that. We’ll also have daily-changing blackboards for food and drinks and cocktails. And I currently have a few surprises up my sleeve. There’s a lot to look forward to.”
Earlier this month Mark launched the Mark Greenaway Award in association with independent brewer Innis & Gunn. The award has been established to find Scotland’s best amateur pastry chef.
