Seafood focus from chef behind Steak
THE chef behind Edinburgh restaurant Steak has taken to the sea with the launch of a new venture, called Fish Eatery.
Executive head chef Jason Wright opened Fish Eatery, which is located next door to Steak on Edinburgh’s Picardy Place, earlier this month. He will head both restaurants.
The new 46-cover restaurant opens for lunch and dinner from Tuesday though to Saturday from 12 noon until 11pm.
Pre and post-dinner drinks are served in the restaurant’s adjoining Skippers bar.
The menu at Fish Eatery is said to have a focus on “high quality fresh Scottish fish”.
Featured dishes include citrus lemon sole, fish stew, halibut kiev and chicken and lobster macaroni. There is also an ‘early teatime’ set menu available until 6.30pm.
All of the fish served at the restaurant is sourced from Scottish fishmonger Gary Welch.
Wright said he was excited to open the new venue, “especially after the amazing response and success we have had with Steak”.
“It was the next natural step for me and my team; opening another restaurant is something I’ve always wanted to do and now is the right time to do it,” said Wright.
“I’m ready and up for the challenge.”
Wright took the helm at Steak in 2012, aged 25, having previously worked as head chef at Edinburgh seafood restaurant Ondine.
Both Fish Eatery and Steak are housed in parent firm Brown Taylor Group’s Georgian townhouse on Picardy Place, beneath the company’s Twelve Picardy Place Hotel.
