Amuse celebrate first year with two AA Rosettes


Within 12 months of opening Amuse Kevin Dalgleish, has been awarded two AA Rosettes adding to the growing list of accolades for the Aberdeen based restaurant.

It means that within its first year, Amuse has become one of only three restaurants within the city to achieve two Rosettes and been featured in the 2023 Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland. The chef patron also made his TV debut representing Scotland on the eighteenth season of BBC’s Great British Menu alongside a line-up of exceptional Scottish culinary talent including Mark McCabe, co-owner and head chef at The Ethicurean in Bristol; Adam Handling, owner of the Adam Handling Restaurant Group; and Tunde Abifarin, head chef of the Capital’s Farin Road.

Kevin said, “When I opened Amuse I wanted to bring something new to my hometown and breathe some new life into the hospitality industry in North-East Scotland. I wanted to create the perfect balance of good Scottish food bursting with flavour in an environment that doesn’t feel stuffy or formal. I’m incredibly proud and grateful to our dedicated team, our valued guests and amazing suppliers who have made this a reality.

“In my wildest dreams, I wouldn’t have imaged that we would be approaching our our first birthday with two AA Rosettes, a mention in the 2023 Michelin Guide and having had the opportunity to cook for Andi Oliver Tom Kerridge, Nisha Katona and Ed Gamble as part of the BBC’s Great British Menu.

“We’ll be celebrating on Sunday 25 June with a Sunday lunch like no other. We’ll be kicking our birthday bash off with a champagne reception, a four course lunch and Edward Reid will be hosting.”
