A trip to Spain hasn’t been on the cards this year, however the city’s Grey Street will soon be Olé street when Café Andaluz opens its doors in the Autumn.
Located on the former Carluccio’s site, Café Andaluz will recreate “dining out in your favourite Andalusian restaurant” bringing a 2-hour trip to Spain back on the cards for people of the city.
Cafe Andaluz operates 5 restaurants in Scotland and the Grey Street first visuals show the brand’s trademark mosaic tiling, heavy mahogany Moorish style tables and outsize lantern lighting. Booths will run along the double height windows and a cocktail bar features in the main restaurant too.
On the first floor, a Private Dining Room comes complete with a private bar and curved booth following the rounded corner profile of the historic building. The room can host groups from 30 to 60 for private events and celebrations.
On the menu, expect the winning dishes of Café Andaluz. Pinchitos Morunos, Gambas pil pil & Butifarra Negra are among the crowd-pleasers on the menu alongside sharing paellas, sharing Sangrias and Churros that only the generous share…
The restaurant is part of the DRG portfolio, who operate more than 20 restaurants across Scotland. Tony Conetta of the DRG commented “This is an exciting new chapter for us all. Grey Street is a fantastic location and when the old Nat West building became available, we had to make a move. A lot of people will know the brand from trips to Edinburgh and now can enjoy the best Spanish Tapas closer to home”
The restaurant plans to open its doors in October 2021 and has a page on its website for keeping up to date on developments and reservations.
