St James Quarter in Edinburgh has secured the Sushisamba restaurant group to occupy the rooftop at W Edinburgh, located on levels 10 and 11.
Sushisamba Edinburgh will open within W Edinburgh as part of St James Quarter’s final phase in 2022.
The restaurant will be the brand’s third UK location and its first outside of London, joining Amsterdam, Las Vegas, Dubai and two London sites Heron Tower and Covent Garden.
Its menu is a blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, culture, music and design, to be served within Scotland’s first W Hotel – the 244-room W Edinburgh.
The restaurant will feature a main dining room with views of Edinburgh’s skyline, a bar and lounge, chef’s table, as well as outdoor terraces.
“From the start, we’ve focused on ensuring St James Quarter attracts world-leading brands and securing Sushisamba for the rooftop of W Edinburgh matches this ambition,” comments Ed Webb, director of development management at St James Quarter.
“The Sushisamba brand and offer is a perfect fit for our vision and is a fantastic addition to the existing food line-up at St James Quarter.
“Sushisamba will bring a new level of energy and excitement to Edinburgh, showcasing a joint vision and innovative concepts not yet seen in the Scottish capital.”
“Edinburgh and its international appeal make it a natural fit for Sushisamba’s third UK location as we continue to expand our brand globally,” adds Omar Gutierrez, chief operating officer of Sushisamba.
“We look forward to unveiling our cutting-edge plans and are honoured to join the growing list of pedigree brands that make up St James Quarters’ iconic estate.”
The brands joins other food ventures at St James Quarter, including Bonnie & Wild, @Pizza, Five Guys and The Alchemist.
