KORA by Tom Kitchin to expand and move to seven day operation


Following a successful summer launch, Chef Tom Kitchin and his wife Michaela have announced that their latest venue – Edinburgh neighbourhood restaurant and bar KORA by Tom Kitchin, will double the size of its team and will move to a seven-day a week operation.

From Monday 14th November, KORA will open for dinner from Monday – Sunday, and for lunches on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with dining options in both the bar and restaurant.

The news follows the appointment of 15 new team members at the venue – across front of house and chefs in the kitchen.   The team behind successful venues The Kitchin, The Scran & Scallie and The Bonnie Badger has sought to establish KORA as a genuine neighbourhood restaurant, local in every sense with a deep-rooted ‘From Nature to Plate’ philosophy.  A menu led by Chef Tom Kitchin, Chef Director Dominic Jack, and KORA Head Chef James Chapman, brings Scotland’s natural larder to the forefront.

Chef Tom Kitchin explains; “After a busy summer at KORA, we’re so pleased to be in a position to open the restaurant seven days a week.

“We’ve invested a lot in training and supporting new and existing team members who have come forward showing great talent. Everyone is excited to welcome even more guests through our doors this coming season.”

“We’re proud to be able to source so much locally which means our menu is constantly evolving.  We’re working really closely with Edinburgh growers and farmers who are bringing us locally-grown root vegetables such as Free Company celeriac and beetroot as well as East Lothian Kilduff pumpkins and locally foraged wild mushrooms.  We’ve got lobster from Newhaven and day boat squid from Pittenweem, alongside sustainable, free-range chicken from The Borders as well as local Castle Game Sika Deer and Highland Wagyu Beef reared in Dunblane.

“Our menu is constantly evolving depending on what they bring us every day which is allowing us to be really creative and give our guests a true flavour of the season.  There really is something for everyone to enjoy.”
