Dundee welcomes Vandal & Co 


Vandal & Co is the newest restaurant on the block in Dundee. Behind it are Jonnie Armitage and business partner, Corey Buxton, with chef Nicholas Kock running the kitchen. It opened on April 27 in the former Castlehill restaurant on Exchange Street and it has a capacity for 36 covers in one sitting.

An idea that has been in the making for a few months, Jonnie and Australian Corey decided to turn their dream of running a restaurant into a reality when they were working together.

Corey told DRAM, “Between Jonnie, Nicholas, and I, we have over 40 years experience working in hospitality. I worked in many bars in Australia before moving here and met Jonnie when we worked at Dundee’s Italian Grill.

“It’s great to have our own place and we got 350 bookings from the good people of Dundee in the first week and we all have sore legs because we’re not used to that many steps but it’s the good type of pain.”

The colour scheme is white, teal, and yellow with pops of colour on quirky pictures on the wall like a pink flamingo.
