Commenting on the new Edinburgh restaurant he 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 back to a home crowd.”

Tracey Matthews, Group Chief Operating Officer at Gaucho said: “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.

“Edinburgh’s food and drink scene is flourishing and we see Gaucho making a significant contribution to this”
