Plumed Horse duo move to Field
Gordon Craig and Richard Conway, previously together at Edinburgh’s Michelin-starred Plumed Horse, have reunited to open their own restaurant in the capital’s Newington district.
They have refurbished the former Home Bistro in West Nicolson Street on the city’s Southside and re-launched it as Field.
Craig, 28, was latterly at the Roux family’s three Michelin star Waterside Inn at Bray in Berkshire. Conway was Maitre d’ and then Manager of the Plumed Horse in 2010 and 2011.
“We’re following the Michelin quality concept but without any pretentiousness and concentrating on providing great value for money,” said Conway whose background also includes managing the Wee Restaurant at North Queensferry.
“Field will serve the food I like to eat myself,” added Craig who spent time training at the two Michelin-starred Gleneagles Hotel and Champignon Sauvage restaurant in Cheltenham. “It’s similar to the food I’ve helped create at Michelin-starred restaurants, simplified for a small bistro and with some playful elements added.”
The 22 cover restaurant will also showcase “world class wines at prices which will shame Edinburgh’s top-end establishments,” Conway said.
Field is open for lunch and dinner from Tuesdays to Saturdays.
