Alain Roux and Michel Roux OBE to open in the Balmoral

Alain Roux, Chef Patron of The Waterside Inn, Bray-on-Thames, and his father, Michel Roux, O.B.E., legendary chef and restaurateur, are set to launch a new restaurant in Edinburgh at Rocco Forte owned Balmoral Hotel next month. The £3 million renovation project started at the beginning of 2018. Once opened it will boast 210 covers across the restaurant and bar and the food on offer at the new restaurant will include classic French dishes inspired by the finest Scottish ingredients. Alain will take up the position of Signature Chef at the new brasserie and bar that will replace Hadrian’s Brasserie and The Balmoral Bar. He currently retains three Michelin stars at The Waterside Inn, the only restaurant in the world outside France to have upheld this accolade for more than thirty years.   Commenting on the new partnership, Michel Roux added, “The new brasserie marks a unique alliance between the Roux and Forte families. As leaders in our fields, our families are committed to excellence, impeccable service and promoting the next generation with my son, Alain leading the restaurant. We are thrilled to be opening in Edinburgh, the epicentre of Scottish culture and a thoroughly modern city. We are fascinated with its proud past and delighted to be part of its vibrant future as we join forces with the award-winning and iconic Balmoral. It is a formidable synergy, an exciting new venture and we can’t wait to welcome our first customers.”http://www.roccofortehotels.com
