Last November Scottish-chef Mark Greenaway announced he was moving from Picardy Place to another location in Edinburgh. The moved was shrouded in secrecy and the new location has now finally been revealed. The restaurant will be re-launched at the cities North Castle Street and is due to open for business on the 18 January.
Mark’s new location formerly housed Italian restaurant Librizzi. The Georgian building is being renovated and the basement will house a specially-designed wine vault. The vault will be stocked by sommelier Loic Deruyver, who will invite diners to sample wines before they sit down for their meal. There will also be the addition of private dining by spring 2013.
Once open, the restaurant will provide the same flavours and high standards that became synonymous with No.12 Picardy Place. Lunch and dinner will be available between Tuesday and Saturday.
