St James Quarter in Edinburgh has let 2,000 sq ft to itsu, who will be opening their first ever Scottish outlet later this month at the Register Square entrance.
itsu will be offering healthy, hot & cold Asian inspired dishes for both grab and go and eat in customers.
The news follows on the back of the recent announcements, including that The Botanist will be opening its first Scotland-based restaurants at St James Quarter, taking a 11,400-sq ft unit at St Andrew’s Hall, a grade B-listed building overlooking Leith Walk.
Ed Corrigan at St James Quarter, commented: “We are continuing to attract new names to Scotland thanks to the lifestyle district’s unique offering and strong footfall figures which are continuing to outperform expectations, despite the recent pandemic.
“itsu will add an important dimension to an already diverse F&B offering that we’re assembling here at St James Quarter. We’ve gone to great lengths to bring a unique mix of distinct and local brands together here, and itsu’s offering of healthy fast food will fill another niche for our guests to enjoy.”
Neil Miller, chief customer officer at itsu, said: “Our grocery business has seen record breaking noodlepot sales in Edinburgh. We’re looking forward to expanding our itsu offering with our city-centre restaurant serving freshly made sushi, salads, hot rice & noodle pots.”
