Double Delight in Edinburgh

Posted on



Chef Mark Greenaway today revealed his plans to open a second restaurant in Edinburgh.   Due to open in early December the new venture, called Bistro Moderne, will be housed in the recently-closed Café Fish on North West Circus Place in Stockbridge. The Georgian building, which was formerly a bank, is currently being renovated. Mark Greenaway's New Premises at 69 North Castle Street


Bistro Moderne will take the classic French bistro concept and revitalise it by adding imaginative dishes, a dessert bar and a 5-course grazing menu matched with whisky, beer and spirits to showcase drinks produced in Scotland.

Mark commented:

“I’ll be using the same fresh Scottish ingredients that I use at Restaurant Mark Greenaway, just treating them slightly differently.  And because Bistro will be open on a Sunday we’ll be serving amazing roasts of Aberdeen Angus beef and chicken.  I’m quite excited about that.  We’ll also have daily-changing blackboards for food and drinks and cocktails.  And I currently have a few surprises up my sleeve.  There’s a lot to look forward to.”

With 80 covers, the spacious restaurant will offer seating across two bars, two areas within the main room, and a further smaller area to the rear.  The Bistro will operate a no reservations policy for dining at the bar, although bookings can be made for table seating.

Bistro Moderne will be operated in partnership with new business partners Sue and Jeremy Hitchen.  The Hitchens operate Foodies Festivals which take place across the UK.


Bistro Moderne will be open 7 days a week serving lunch and dinner.  Breakfast will be served on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Earlier this month Mark launched the Mark Greenaway Award in association with independent brewer Innis & Gunn.  The award has been established to find Scotland’s best amateur pastry chef.

Mark will be appearing in a new BBC Two documentary Teen Canteen later this month.
