THERE’S another new restaurant to tempt your taste buds coming to the Capital, next Friday.

The Macdonald Holyrood Hotel has announced the opening date of their highly anticipated new restaurant, Bistro Deluxe by Paul Tamburrini.

Friday 6 October is the date for the diary, from then, diners will be able to sample Tamburrini’s renowned signature blend of French cuisine and the finest Scottish ingredients, from up to 40-day hung Aberdeen Angus beef to delicacies, such as Lindisfarne oysters and French rabbit.

The new bistro is a partnership between the UK’s largest independent hotel group and the top Scottish chef, who was previously Chef Director at Martin Wishart’s acclaimed The Honours Brasserie.

At Bistro Deluxe, guests will be able to choose from the à la carte menu including a grill selection, a prix fixe menu or a five-course tasting menu with accompanying wines paired to complement each course.

Aromatic Foie Gras and Lentil Terrine, served with Carrot Pureé and Carrot Crumbs and Aberdeen Angus Sirloin, prepared with a specially developed barbecue marinade, cooked on a Josper grill and finished with a Madeira veal glaze, are just two of the dishes that have been created.

With almost 30 years’ experience in the industry, Tamburrini trained with Marco Pierre White at L’Escargot in London.

He says, “Bistro Deluxe will showcase a progressive and forward-thinking menu.

“Working at this level you become obsessed with perfection - there’s so much artistry involved that you’ve got to be a chemist on flavours and an artist on presentation.”

Ruaridh Macdonald of Macdonald Hotels adds, “Paul Tamburrini is one of the most exciting chefs in Scotland and what he will bring to Bistro Deluxe will be his outstanding ability to produce exceptional food.”
