Just when you thought St James Quarter couldn't get any better, Duck & Waffle go and hit us with an absolutely worldie. Joining the likes of The Alchemist and SUSHISAMBA in the retail district's growing dining and drinking options, this will be the much-loved restaurant's first UK venue outside London - and it's popping up just a stone's throw from Edinburgh Castle.
Opening its doors on the fourth floor in 2022, the eatery will boast a stylish terrace if you want to nab a table overlooking the action in St James Quarter. As for interiors? It's being kept under-wraps for now; but if it's anything like its London cousin, then it's bound to be a beauty.
Continuing the promise set out by its name, Duck & Waffle is famous for creating the perfect marriage of sweet and savoury across its dishes. From their spicy ox cheek doughnut to foie gras creme brulee, the small plates and full-on feasts here are never quite what you expect. Plus, they're serving them up for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, so you'll literally never have to leave. The icing on the cake is the kooky cocktails on offer, with fig sangria and a tropical twist on a bramble making their signature menu.
