TOP Scottish chef Sean Clark and business partner Paul O’Donoghue are set to open a new bistro in Edinburgh backed by a Hollywood director.

Under the Table will be located on Dundas Street and will seat around 50 people to offer a fixed price lunch menu and an A La Carte dinner menu, including a Sunday lunch offering.

Influenced by bistros across Europe, each dish on the menu will be a celebration of local and seasonal produce and will change often to ensure customers experience the best ingredients sourced from local suppliers.

The new venture has even captured the attention of Hollywood director and producer Joe Russo who is best known for his work directing the Marvel film series.

A renowned foodie, he has invested in the project after previously experiencing Clark’s cooking first hand.

The launch menu will include dishes such as hay smoked mackerel with apple and celeriac, braised beef cheek with whipped coffee polenta and a classic tarte tatin with ice cream designed for sharing.

O’Donoghue has also curated an extensive wine list to compliment the menu.

Commenting on the new venture, he said: “Under The Table bring to life conversations and ideas that have been fermenting for over six years.

“We will be an ingredient focussed restaurant with strong links and references to classic European cuisine, taking inspiration from the Bouchon’s and Osteria’s of France and Italy that we love, where wine lives front and centre and warm hospitality is ever present.”

An official April opening date is to be revealed in the coming weeks.
