The Gannet swoops on Edinburgh

THE operators behind Glasgow restaurant The Gannet will be among the restaurateurs featured in Edinburgh venue Bonnie & Wild when it opens its doors next month.

Ivan Stein and Peter McKenna, who opened the SLTN Award-winning restaurant in 2013, have confirmed that The Gannet will be one of the first tenants of the Bonnie & Wild Scottish Marketplace food hall – part of the larger St James Quarter development – when it opens on 24th June.

The food hall will feature eight food stalls, three bars and four speciality retailers. Customers will be able to order food from any of the stalls and have it delivered to their table in the food hall. The Gannet will join other names including vegan restaurant group Erpingham House and Creel Caught, a new restaurant from chef Gary Maclean.

“From the moment we heard about Bonnie & Wild’s Scottish Marketplace we knew it was a perfect fit for The Gannet,” said McKenna.

“The venue is stunning. The finish, the concept, and the food and drink offering are all first class. I’m excited The Gannet is going to be one of the key food offerings within it.”

Bonnie & Wild general manager, Kate Russell, said visitors to the food hall “will be blown away by the range of food options available to them”.
