First look impressions of Spanish Butcher Edinburgh

First look and opening date confirmed for Spanish Butcher Edinburgh

Here we have a first look impression of The Spanish Butcher, Edinburgh, and confirmation that it will officially open in Scotland’s capital on Friday 10th May, 2024.

You’ll find the Spanish Butcher in Edinburgh  at 58A North Castle Street and these renders show the styling and decor inside.

Design characteristics of the new restaurant include the Spanish Square; a 20-capacity private dining space with dramatic shutters ensuring maximum discretion, include a striking bronze and copper pigment-infused resin floor, equestrian booths with leather seating in tobacco, ox blood and olive colourways, warm stained oak panelling.

Exposed brick – both in untreated Terracotta and painted in The Spanish Butcher’s signature green, rattan panels framing the bar with meticulous symmetry, antique smoky mirrors, and lush Kentia palms, whilst lighting takes the equestrian rein with custom made brass and glass globe lighting strapped with leather, and bow and arrow wall sconces.

Speaking about this latest new development, James and Louise Rusk, co-founders of RUSK & RUSK said:

“We are delighted to announce The Spanish Butcher, Edinburgh will officially open to the public on Friday 10th May.

North Castle Street has a remarkable storied history, and we are excited to be contributing to its placemaking within the capital. Our commitment to this new restaurant, and to the city, is very much reflected in the quality and detail of The Spanish Butcher design. We hope our customers love its stylish mid-century aesthetic and welcoming neighbourhood vibe, and we can’t wait to share details soon on the menu!”
