Award-winning Chef Roberta Hall-McCarron and husband Shaun McCarron have opened a new restaurant and wine bar called Eleanore.
The Leith-based restaurateurs originally operated The Little Chartroom out of the premises, but after the couple relocated the restaurant in September to Bonnington Road, and have now replaced it with Eleanore.
The new restaurant, with 20 covers, takes its name from the boat owned by Roberta’s family and named after her mother, and focuses on relaxed counter culture with high-top dining, and small plates.
Chefs Hamish McNeil and Moray Lamb (formerly of Little Chartroom on The Prom) will run the pass, whilst also incorporating their own culinary influences.
The new restaurant has been designed by Studio Niro who have incorporated soft whites and hints of dark blues – will hint at the makings of a boat and the Scottish coastline whilst earthy tones from the muds of the deep sea will be reflected in the hand-crafted ceramics. The space has been designed for flexible dining, from a full meal to a glass of wine. The team are pictured above.
