The Bon Vivant Group to debut new Edinburgh venue Luckenbooths


The Bon Vivant Group will open a new 140 cover all-day dining restaurant and bar called Luckenbooths at 329 High Street, Edinburgh on 11th October, opposite St Giles Cathedral.

It will mark the eighth business for The Bon Vivant Group, whose director is Anthony Hester, and its Edinburgh portfolio already includes Lady Libertine, The Devil’s Advocate, The Bon Vivant and Mexican restaurant chain, El Cartel, which recently launched a third venue in the Old Town, El Cartel Roxburgh.

The Bon Vivant’s former head chef, Emma Clark-Szabo (pictured), will run the kitchen at Luckenbooths.

It takes its name from the timber fronted tenement buildings which existed across the street from us from 1440 until around 1817. Their varied frontages and roof lines formed a feature on the High Street and housed the very first shops in the city with ground level lockable booths (or Luckenbooths).
