The launch of the Edinburgh restaurant will also see Chef Director – Jamie Robertson – return to his roots.
Born and raised in Bonnyrigg, Robertson worked alongside celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, before joining Gaucho in 2012; overseeing menu development and supply chain.
Jamie Robertson, said: “Being from Bonnyrigg, this is something of a homecoming for me. I’m enjoying the opportunity to create exclusive dishes for our new Edinburgh restaurant that celebrate and fuse the provenance of Argentinian beef with Scotland’s enviable natural larder.
“If there’s one thing Scots know, it’s good beef, so I’m looking forward to bringing Gaucho’s world-famous menu to a home crowd.”
Tracey Matthews, Group Chief Operating Officer at Gaucho added: “Right in the heart of Scotland’s cosmopolitan capital, the iconic St Andrew Square provides an ideal location for Gaucho to open our flagship Scottish restaurant and bar.”
