Michelinstarred chef Tom Kitchin has announced he is to open his fourth restaurant in Edinburgh.

He said the new venture would follow the From Nature to Plate philosophy adopted at his other restaurants, but will present a fresh new proposition to his other venues.

Tom Kitchin is to open his fourth restaurant.

Kitchin, who has appeared as a guest judge and mentor on MasterChef, and has competed on the Great British Menu, said Weve 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.

The venue is currently under refurbishment and is set to open in summer .

The restaurant, at Bruntsfield Place, is in a building formerly occupied by a running shop.

Like our other restaurants, the new venue will be a different concept which were really excited about. Were pleased to be creating new opportunities and challenges for our immensely talented and growing team of staff. From day one, weve 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 chef says the new venue, which will be in Edinburghs Bruntsfield district, is a different format to the rest of his eateries, which include his eponymous fine dining restaurant in Leith, bistro The Scran and Scallie and Castle Terrace.
