Tom Kitchin to open Southside Scran in Edinburgh in November

This November, Michelin-starred chef Tom Kitchin and his award-winning team will open their new restaurant, Southside Scran, in the heart of Bruntsfield in Edinburgh.

Featuring an open rotisserie in the middle of the brass-accented dining room, the neighbourhood bistro’s menu will incorporate the best of Scotland’s produce, with hints of Kitchin's passion for French cuisine.

It will be the first time that Kitchin Group has brought the ‘From nature to plate’ philosophy to the south side of town, following the success of The Kitchin in Leith, Castle Terrace, nestled underneath Edinburgh Castle, and The Scran & Scallie in Stockbridge (dish pictured).

Chef Tom Kitchin, his wife Michaela as well as their business partner Dominic Jack of Castle Terrace along with their teams have an endless passion for seasonal produce. Once again set to only use the freshest, local, seasonal produce at Southside the menu will reflect Chef Kitchin and Chef Jack's sincere passion for modern takes on traditional dishes and also offer diners a daily seafood selection.

The open plan dining room, which will showcase a rotisserie grill with daily cuts of meat, fish and vegetables will also be featured on the menu.

The drinks list at Southside Scran will feature a strong wine focus, with a unique selection of wines picked by Kitchin Group's Head Sommelier Joel Bastian from a variety of small independent producers, both old and new world. As with the menu, an array of cocktails will change depending on what’s in season.

Kitchin said, “Over the years we have often been asked when we're going to open a restaurant in the south side of Edinburgh. Bruntsfield is very charming and it just felt like the right place for us to create a neighbourhood restaurant where people can enjoy a meal with their family and friends.

“The open rotisserie has long been a dream of ours and we can't wait to showcase new dishes and ways of cooking with Scotland's incredible produce.”
