THE Capital’s thriving restaurant scene is set to welcome its newest member, 83 Hanover Street, next Saturday, but before that there is a chance to sample its wares while making a saving.
The restaurant has announced its soft launch with 50% off all food for lunch and dinner next Thursday, 26 July, and lunch on Friday, 27 July.
83 Hanover Street is the first dining project from former Gleneagles restaurant manager and owner of local 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 by offering a modern menu of small plates created by chef Ross Clarke.
Each will pay tribute to Juan’s Chilean and Swedish upbringing.
The plates will celebrate bold and rich flavours with a focus on bespoke charcuterie created by East Coast Cured, which will hang on display at the open kitchen and bar, as well an emphasis on citrus cured seafood and grilled cuts of meat.
Other dishes on the menu will include Sopaipillas, a Chilean pumpkin bread and Juan’s mother’s empanadas which will be introduced by her and the chefs when she visits this summer. Specials will be added regularly offering the freshest local produce available.
The official opening takes place on Saturday 28 July.
