North Queensferry-based restaurateurs Craig and Vikki Wood are all set to make their move on Auld Reekie as the pair prepare to launch their second restaurant in Edinburgh’s New Town.
The Wee Restaurant Edinburgh will open at 61 Frederick Street, the former site of Fleur de Sel, on April 7.
The 40-cover restaurant is based on the same ethos as the Woods’ first venture, launched in 2006, and will focus on “simple good food and wine”.
Craig Wood said he will maintain his hands-on approach in both kitchens, working with head chefs Sam Dorey in Fife and Michael Innes in Edinburgh.
“Although many Wee Restaurant dishes have changed over the past ten years, our philosophy has remained the same,” he said.
