The new restaurant and bar will be inside double height former banking hall and will showcase the history of the building and its original features.

Tony Conetta, managing director of The Di Maggio’s Restaurant Group (DRG), Scotland’s largest independent restaurant group, commented: “This is an incredibly exciting project for us, in both an iconic building and location. The Edinburgh Grand’s banking hall is rich in history, both for the capital and Scotland as a whole, and by carefully retaining and restoring the many original features we will bring this heritage to life. Our luxury restaurant and bar offering will have a Scottish influence at its heart and will make a significant contribution to Edinburgh’s vibrant food and drink scene.”
