New owner steaks claim on bistro

Wildfire Steakhouse and Seafood Bistro

WHAT’S said to be one of Edinburgh’s oldest steakhouses has changed hands in an off-market deal brokered by The Restaurant Agency.

Owned by Greg and Lesley McDonald for more than 20 years, Wildfire Steakhouse and Seafood Bistro on Rose Street was acquired by Edinburgh operator Sajal Chowdhury for an undisclosed sum from an asking price of offers over £75,000 for the leasehold interest.

Alan Goldie, director of The Restaurant Agency who handled the sale of the 30-cover eatery, said: “We were delighted to have played an active role on behalf of Greg and Lesley, experienced operators who chose The Restaurant Agency to handle matters in a completely discreet manner from first instruction through completion.”
