Dale Mailley, chef director of The Gardener’s Cottage, has revealed the name for his third Edinburgh restaurant will be The Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage. An opening date will be announced late this year.
It’s a partnership with Collective, the organisation currently re-developing the City Observatory site on Calton Hill into a new home for contemporary art.
Built on a cantilever so the restaurant is partially suspended over Calton Hill’s northwest slope, The Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage will feature floor to ceiling glass windows and promises, says the company, panoramic views across Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth.
As well as the restaurant, the new site on Calton Hill – to be called Collective – incorporates the restored City Observatory and City Dome, along with new purpose-built exhibition space The Hillside.
