CHOP HOUSE BRAND EXPANDS TO NEW WAVERLEY
A second Chop House bar and butchery will open this July at the The Arches on East Market Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town.
The new Chop House site will be a continuation of the brand that successfully launched last September in Leith. (See our review HERE)
Open 7 days a week, Chop House will bring its unique casual dining experience focused on steak and cocktails to the city centre.
The focus of the menu is British beef, butchered in-house then dry-aged for up to 90 days in an on-site specialist fridge before being cooked over an open-flame charcoal grill.
Sociable dining is central to the brand’s ethos, with large sharing steaks such as chateaubriand, bone-in rib and porterhouse taking centre stage. These specialist cuts will be available in varying weights between 500g and 1.2kg and are designed to encourage a sharing experience around the table. Prime cuts such as fillet, sirloin and rump will also feature on the menu alongside dishes such as steak burgers, lobster and charred lamb chops.
The new venue is larger than the Leith original, laid out over 2 floors with an extensive bar area, located in a C-listed brickwork arch, originally constructed in 1875. The developers behind New Waverley have brought 19 historic arches back to life, creating a brand new retail and leisure destination for Edinburgh.
Award-winning design agency Four by Two have been commissioned to create a dynamic interior space including a custom-made steel staircase leading to a mezzanine level. Hanging booth seating, also custom-made from steel lending the restaurant a luxuriously modern feel whilst highlighting the architectural details of the original brickwork.
