Hollywood heavyweight invests in Edinburgh’s fine dining scene

Scottish chef Sean Clark and his business partner, former wine merchant Paul O’Donoghue, have officially launched their new Edinburgh restaurant venture ‘Under The Table’, with help from superstar Hollywood director Joe Russo.

Russo, who is renowned for his work on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first tasted Clark’s food when he was in Edinburgh filming for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, which involved substantial simulated destruction in and around Cockburn St and Waverley train station.

But the director has since returned to help create something entirely real, as an investor in Under the Table, a modern bistro said to be ‘inspired and influenced by Scotland’s larder and the elegantly casual but bustling restaurants of Europe’.

Located on Dundas St, directly underneath The Table, the 50-cover bistro will offer a fixed price lunch menu and an A La Carte dinner menu, including a relaxed Sunday lunch offering.

Each dish on the menu will be a celebration of carefully considered local and seasonal produce, and it is promised that it will change often to ensure customers are experiencing only the best ingredients sourced from the restaurant’s carefully curated local suppliers.
