Chef Tom Kitchin and his wife Michaela are to open a new restaurant concept this spring, ‘KORA by Tom Kitchin’ in Edinburgh’s Bruntsfield area. The restaurant will be located on the site of their former bistro ‘Southside Scran’ which closed in 2020 after it was impacted by both severe flooding and forced pandemic closures.
KORA by Tom Kitchin, will include a bar area as well as a 65-cover dining space and the name pays homage to Chef Tom Kitchin’s deep-rooted passion for working with the seasons as the name KORA, is known in Greek mythology as the ‘Goddess of spring, flowers and vegetation’.
Chef Tom Kitchin explains, “This new chapter is a really exciting one for our entire team and also for the city. We can’t wait to get back into the kitchen and start cooking some really fresh and exciting new dishes for our guests.”
