Edinburgh’s finest were out in force this week to attend the reopening of Michelin-starred restaurant The Kitchin after a much anticipated extension and renovation.
The canapés were truly delicious, the champagne was flowing and the newly revamped restaurant looked stunning.
Breaking down the wall between the recently vacated restaurant next door, the impressive expansion has unveiled an extended dining space, an exclusive private dining room and a cosy whisky snug for enjoying a post-dinner dram.
With a medley of tartan, tweeds and even a wall of silver birch, the decadent interiors take you on a journey through Scotland.
After working with Michelin starred restaurant, The Kitchin for over two years, Stripe Communications has been appointed to launch the Leith-based restaurant team’s second venture – Castle Terrace.
Set in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, Castle Terrace’s Chef Patron, Dominic Jack, will be serving up a menu of Scottish classics with a French influence. Using the highest quality, freshest produce Scotland has to offer, Castle Terrace will reflect the same philosophy renowned at The Kitchin – ‘From Nature to Plate’.
The restaurant also offers diners a chance to gain an exclusive insight into a working kitchen. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of champagne or aperitif adjacent to the kitchen, witnessing the chefs at work and the precision, concentration and passion that goes into creating each dish.
Castle Terrace is the first solo venture from chef patron Dominic Jack, who is supported by the management team of award-winning restaurant The Kitchin, and fellow chef and friend Tom Kitchin.
Dominic has a long-standing friendship with Tom Kitchin, after the pair met aged just 18 where they began their careers at the world-renowned Gleneagles. Following a number of years working in some of the most renowned restaurants in the world with legendary chefs; a path similar to that of fellow chef, Tom Kitchin, Dominic returned to his hometown of Edinburgh in 2008 and has spent the past two years working with The Kitchin team to forge relationships with the country’s best producers and source a suitable location for the new restaurant.
Stripe’s remit is to manage the launch reception and an on-going food influencer and media campaign.
