First Scottish Restaurants for Michelin-Starred Brothers


The Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh will unveil two new restaurants by Michelin-starred brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin in late summer 2012 – the brothers’ first in Scotland. The restaurants will form part of a £24m restoration and upgrade, which will also see the 241-room city centre hotel re-branded as The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
The two restaurants, The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe, continue a partnership between Hilton Worldwide and the Galvin brothers, who run the Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows situated on the top floor of London Hilton on Park Lane.
Chris Galvin said, “It has been our ambition for some time to open a restaurant in Scotland, so to be able to open two distinct restaurants as part of our great partnership with Hilton Worldwide, is a truly unique opportunity. The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel is set to become a superb luxury addition to Edinburgh, and we want to showcase the very best of both Scottish ingredients and talent to make The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe destination restaurants that appeal to locals and visitors to Edinburgh.”
The Pompadour by Galvin will revive the glamour of the dining room as a luxurious French culinary experience, while Brasserie de Luxe, with its street access, will be styled on a Parisian brasserie, with a crustacea showcase at its heart, and a large circular bar for diners.
