St James Quarter has secured Duck & Waffle restaurant, with boasts prestigious locations in London and Hong Kong, for its Edinburgh debut in 2022.
The all-day restaurant will be located on level 4, occupying 8,400 sq ft, including a terrace overlooking the entrance to the quarter in Register Square.
Duck & Waffle Edinburgh will deliver its take on traditional British cuisine with broad European influences emphasizing ‘local, rustic, seasonal and sustainable ingredients’ to the Scottish capital, with dishes designed for sampling and sharing.
Ed Corrigan at St James Quarter, said: “For a brand of the calibre of Duck & Waffle to choose St James Quarter for its first UK restaurant outside of London is a massive coup for Edinburgh, underlining not just the strength of the city’s international appeal, but St James Quarter’s growing reputation in the market. It adds to a stellar food offer that will cater for all of our visitors, from the casual diner to the serial foodie – we absolutely cannot wait for this opening.”
Shimon Bokovza, managing partner of Duck & Waffle added: “Duck & Waffle was born in London and we’re proud to spread our wings to Edinburgh’s anticipated St James Quarter as we expand globally. We’re eager to participate in the city’s love for culture and the arts through our own contribution of culinary creativity and epicurean community.”
