Duck & Waffle is to make its Scottish debut next year having secured a site in Edinburgh's St James Quarter.

The modern-European restaurant, whose London flagship can be found on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower in Bishopsgate, is to take on an 8,400 sq ft site on level four of the St James development, overlooking Register Square.

It will join the likes of Sushisamba, Bonnie & Wild, Black Sheep Coffee, Wingstop and Pho in the mixed-used development in the city, which is being delivered by Nuveen Real Estate.

“For a brand of the calibre of Duck & Waffle to choose St James Quarter for its first UK restaurant outside of London is a massive coup for Edinburgh, underlining not just the strength of the city’s international appeal, but St James Quarter’s growing reputation in the market," says Ed Corrigan at St James Quarter.

"It adds to a stellar food offer that will cater for all of our visitors, from the casual diner to the serial foodie – we absolutely cannot wait for this opening.” 

Reflecting the brand’s culinary style, Duck & Waffle Edinburgh will deliver its playful take on traditional British cuisine with broad European influences emphasising local, rustic, seasonal and sustainable ingredients to the Scottish capital, with dishes designed for sampling and sharing.

“Duck & Waffle was born in London and we’re proud to spread our wings to Edinburgh’s anticipated St James Quarter as we expand globally," says Shimon Bokovza, managing partner and brand visionary of Duck & Waffle.

"We’re eager to participate in the city’s love for culture and the arts through our own contribution of culinary creativity and epicurean community.”
