Tom Kitchin's leading Edinburgh restaurants are seeing an investment boost along with the potential opening of a new restaurant. The current restaurants under The Kitchin Group; The Kitchin, Scran & Scallie and Castle Terrace, are said to be receiving investment for refurbishments. The news comes with the prospect of the group opening a new restaurant on the Southside of the city.
The Kitchin have refreshed their interior design, recently launching a brand new series of bespoke menu covers and bill presenters designed by Smart Hospitality Supplies. The set is a matching collection of Smart's London Buckram covers which continues the group's ethos of "From Nature to Plate" - using fresh, local and sustainable ingredients. The 100% cotton material which has been used in bookmaking for centuries maintains the same authenticity that the restaurant considers essential. The interior design and personalised menu covers grasp the same warm colour sets as the Scottish Highlands.
Along with the boost to The Kitchin, the other sites are set to see a similar investment to maintain their luxurious interiors. The group's investment is said to be a precursor to the opening of a brand new restaurant in Edinburgh's Bruntsfield District. The opening is likely to be in the summer of 2018 following a total redevelopment and refurbishment of the two storey site at 14-17 Bruntsfield Place. “We’ve been searching for a venue in the Southside of the city for a long time now and are pleased to have found the ideal location on Bruntsfield Place. We aim to create a space with a genuine neighbourhood feel that locals will want to visit, time and again." Confirmed the Group's founder, Tom Kitchin.
Continuing investment into the restaurants is just one reason that The Kitchin Group have seen such success with each of their openings. The Kitchin received its first Michelin Star within 6 months of opening and has received awards for Best UK Restaurant and Best Restaurant in Scotland since. When asked about the new concept, Tom explained: “Like our other restaurants, the new venue will be a different concept which we’re really excited about. From day one, we’ve set out to really push the boundaries and continue to challenge ourselves, our team and our cooking, and the new restaurant will signal another exciting chapter in our journey.”
The namesake and founder of the group, Tom Kitchin, honed his culinary skills working under Pierre Koffmann in his 3-Michelin Starred restaurant "La Tante Claire". His endeavours have seen him become one of the most highly rated chefs in the UK and a regular face on specialist cookery shows like The Great British Menu. He earned his first Michelin Star at aged 29, at the time, making him the youngest recipient of a Star in the world. The new venue is sure to continue the Kitchin Group's success with the same injection of passion and inspiration always seen from this much loved chef.
