Second restaurant for the Woods
Craig and Vikki Wood are opening a second restaurant in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town called The Wee Restaurant Edinburgh. The couple, who have been running The Wee Restaurant in North Queensferry for the past 10 years, are now bringing their concept to town. As DRAM went to press the 40-cover restaurant at 61 Frederick Street (the former site of Fleur de Sel) was getting set to open. The Wee Restaurant Edinburgh will extend the ethos of The Wee Restaurant North Queensferry, offering ‘simple good food and wine’ alongside excellent service from a small team who share a vision of delivering a friendly, informal and relaxed dining experience. Craig comments, “Although many Wee Restaurant dishes have changed over the past 10 years, our philosophy has remained the same. We want to showcase the great ingredients available to us in Scotland.” Craig will continue to be hands-on in both kitchens, working closely with his head chefs Sam Dorey in Fife and Michael Innes in Edinburgh, as well as writing menus, designing new dishes, tweaking old classics, training staff and overseeing the quality of all cuisine.
