Two new additions to Bonnie & Wild in Edinburgh
With fewer than two months until its 24th June opening day, Bonnie & Wild has confirmed two acclaimed restaurants will be taking top spots at Edinburgh’s first Food Hall.
The Gannet and vegan restaurant group Erpingham House will both be taking key food stalls at Bonnie & Wild’s Scottish Marketplace, which will house eight food stalls, three bars and four speciality retailers.
Housed within the St James Quarter, Bonnie & Wild has been attracting interest since the project was announced in 2019. The initiative looks like a Scottish version of New York’s Chelsea Market.
Head chef Peter Mckenna from The Gannet said: “From the moment we heard about Bonnie & Wild’s Scottish Marketplace we knew it was a perfect fit for The Gannet. The venue is stunning. The finish, the concept, and the food and drink offering are all first class. I’m excited The Gannet is going to be one of the key food offerings within it.”
Upmarket vegan restaurant Erpingham House comes to Scotland for the first time after establishing itself in Norwich and expanding to Brighton.
Executive chef Meg Greenacre said: “We’d been looking to move to Scotland for some time, not least because both Russell and Robert have been desperate for us to open a Scottish Erpingham House! With Bonnie & Wild, we were presented with a superb opportunity to give our thoughtful cuisine a high profile platform in this incredible Food Hall space. I can’t wait for it to open!”
Ms Greenacre said guests to Bonnie & Wild could expect to see plant-based takes on old classics, such as their version of fish and chips, but she said they would be expanding the menu to take in locally available produce.
