Respected Glaswegian chef Paul Tamburrini will open his own restaurant at the Macdonald Holyrood Hotel this autumn
Tamburrini has worked at many of Scotland’s most glamorous locations, from Rogano to Cameron House to One Devonshire Gardens, but this will be the first time he’s had his name above the door.
Bistro by Paul Tamburrini will reportedly offer ‘a creative menu with beautifully executed dishes based around locality and seasonality of produce and a contemporary wine and drinks list’.
Said Paul, “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The management at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts
approached me with a really exciting proposal to combine their position as the UK’s largest independent hotel group with my ambition to open a restaurant in my name. Being part of a hotel environment is second nature to me and I’m
very proud to be taking this next step in my career.”
Based in Edinburgh’s Old Town, the Macdonald Holyrood Hotel has recently enjoyed a £3m revamp.
Tamburrini’s arrival is the third high profile chef appointment at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts lately, with Tony Borthwick and James McCulloch Thomson agreeing to take over the kitchens at Macdonald Rusacks Hotel and Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa respectively.
