Gordon Craig has a proven track record in Edinburgh having helped establish Field and the Field Grill House and now he has branched out on his own with Taisteal.
The word means journey or to travel and Gordon will use some of the knowledge learned on his own travels in the prominently-positioned restaurant in the heart of trendy Stockbridge.
It has big competition in the area but Gordon is confident that his skills learned from working under the direction of the Roux Brothers in London, after training in rated restaurants including The Waterside Inn and The Peat Inn, will attract custom.
Top Scottish produce combined with elements from around the world will be used and the menu will be complemented by an extensive wine list and a selection of classic and contemporary cocktails.
Craig Brown, the Front of House manager, said that a tempting offer will be made to diners in January to help launch the restaurant which is open Tuesday to Sunday (lunch 12-2; dinner 6-9).
Here, Craig tells Nigel Duncan more about what will be on offer at Taisteal https://clyp.it/sat3znrg
