News about Mark Greenaway’s much anticipated new venture has now been released.
“Grazing by Mark Greenaway” will be within the five-star Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh from mid-April! The menu will showcase a mix of traditional, modern and sharing plates, incorporating locally sourced ingredients and unique concept dishes created by Mark.
Star dishes will include Mark’s BBQ shiitake mushrooms on toast, a playful cured meat and choux pastry picnic box, and fluffy buttermilk pancakes inspired by Chef’s recent visit to Japan. It will also showcase British sharing dishes, such as hearty shepherd’s pie and roast chicken, as well as Mark’s popular signature dishes, 11-hour slow roast pork belly, and indulgent sticky toffee soufflé as demonstrated by him on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch.
Mark said: “The brasserie in the Waldorf Astoria is an excellent restaurant space, lending itself to a relaxed dining experience in a stunning location with its own entrance from Rutland Street. It will undergo a complete overhaul at the start of April as we freshen up the space to provide guests with an entirely new dining experience.”
The new restaurant will maintain a brasserie look and feel, with updated décor featuring a few of Mark’s personal accents. Accommodating 170 covers the restaurant will also offer private dining and ‘chef’s table’ experiences.
Mark continued: “Being part of such an historic building within Edinburgh’s city centre is what we see as the natural evolution of our offering – a delectable experience in grand surroundings, yet relaxed and accessible to all. Our focus will be on helping our diners to share and enjoy wonderful food in a leisurely fashion – ‘grazing’ at their own pace. We have some new and unique dishes to present, but my loyal visitors can expect to see a few recognisable touches and some familiar faces too.”
Booking Lines Open on the 2nd April and The restaurant will open on the 17th April.
