83 Hanover Street launches in Edinburgh

New restaurant serving contemporary food with a Chilean flavour and fine wines

 Edinburgh’s thriving restaurant scene has welcomed its newest member, 83 Hanover Street. This is the first dining project from former Gleneagles restaurant manager and owner of acclaimed Edinburgh bar 99 Hanover Street Juan Jose Castillo Castro. Juan, and his partner Vanessa Alfano are set to bring a unique culinary blend of Scottish produce with Chilean flavours to the city.

83 Hanover Street offers a modern menu of small plates showcasing fabulous Scottish ingredients prepared simply and playing tribute to Juan’s multicultural upbringing with influences of Chilean and Swedish cuisine.

The menu, created by chef Ross Clarke, celebrates bold and rich flavours presented across an array of small plates, ideal for sharing. There is a focus on bespoke charcuterie created by East Coast Cured, which hangs on display at the open kitchen and bar, as well as an emphasis on citrus cured seafood and grilled cuts of meat. Other dishes on the menu will include Sopaipillas, a Chilean pumpkin bread, quinoa salads and Juan’s mother’s empanadas which she personally taught the chefs to make. Specials will be added regularly offering the freshest local produce available that week.

The food is accompanied by a selection of wines made using traditional cellar practices, as well as some natural ones, from Europe and South America that have been carefully chosen by Pete Brodie (former restaurant manager at Timberyard) and will be available by the glass and carafe. There are also takes on traditional cocktails with a twist including classic Chilean Pisco drinks.

83 Hanover Street seats 50 with a bar as its focal point, presenting the opportunity for counter top dining. The interiors convey a contemporary, rustic feel; distressed walls complement dark wood detailing and copper lighting, and contrast with burnt orange and yellow leather banquette seating. The bar seat seven where guests can enjoy their meal next to the buzz of the open kitchen and charcuterie counter – a great spot for those stopping for a quick bite and drink, and perfect for the solo diner at the counter top.

A buzzy, vibrant space attracting discerning diners in the heart of the city, 83 Hanover Street is sure to be one of Edinburgh’s hottest openings of 2018.
