Restaurant group Drake & Morgan has confirmed its first site outside of London in the new £75m office development at St. Andrew Square in Edinburgh.
The company says that it is planning for the restaurant to open in autumn 2016.
Edinburgh will become the chain’s 10th outlet, adding to the eight it currently operates in London. Last month it announced a ninth London restaurant would open at King’s Cross this September.
Dylan Murray, director of operations at Drake & Morgan, said: “The new bar and restaurant will be an extension of that same brand but will have its own distinct personality and character befitting of its location.
“Edinburgh is one of the most exciting cities in the UK, having been completely revitalised in recent years and now laying claim to a booming hospitality industry, and our offering will showcase the innovation that Drake & Morgan has become known for.”
The Edinburgh restaurant marks is particularly poignant for founder Jillian MacLean. She previously lived and worked in the city before launching the brand seven years ago.
