New fine dining restaurant, eòrna to open on 30th May in Edinburgh
eòrna, named after the Gaelic word for barley, is a brand new Edinburgh restaurant from two of Scotland’s brightest hospitality stars – chef Brian Grigor and sommelier Glen Montgomery. It will be opening at 68 Hamilton Place in Stockbridge on 30th May and we can’t wait to check it out!
The pair have a wealth of experience gathered from some of Scotland’s finest restaurants including two Michelin star Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, working with Michel Roux Jnr and Brian retained the Michelin star at Edinburgh’s Number One for four years. They will oversee all aspects of the restaurant as a duo – there will be no other chefs or front of house staff creating a pared back, intimate, yet sophisticated dining experience.
The focus of the restaurant is a 12-cover countertop “chefs table” overlooking the kitchen, with Brian and Glen cooking and hosting. Diners will be served an ever-evolving tasting menu using the very best seasonal ingredients and classic old-world wines. The six course menu with canapes will be priced at £95 per person and £65 per person for paired wines.
