First look at new food court marketplace
The food court at St James Quarter isn’t like your usual shopping centre fare so there are no sad tables strewn with the remains of disgarded dinners here. At Bonnie & Wild marketplace there are eight chef-led food stalls, four speciality retailers and three bars to choose from. We’ve written about the plans previously and Local Chef went along to the press night to see and experience the new food outlets.
Gary Maclean, winner of Masterchef: The Professionals 2016 and the National Chef of Scotland has Creel Caught; while Glasgow chefs Peter McKenna and Jimmy Lee are behind The Gannet and Salt and Chilli Oriental respectively. There is also Rico’s Pasta Bar, Erpingham House, CHIX, east PIZZA, Joelato, and Broken Clock Café and Patisserie, Inverarity Wine, Butcher MacDuff 1890 and The Cheese Club.
If you’ve been to New York, this is just like Chelsea Market, with an array of top food and drink suppliers in surroundings a million miles away from your usual shopping centre food court. The decor is modern and tasteful decor with large windows providing plenty of natural light. Bonnie & Wild are here to impressive and it certainly does that.
