A leading international fusion restaurant has been secured for the rooftop space for W Edinburgh as part of the St James Quarter final phase due to open in 2022.
The restaurant located on levels 10 and 11 of the development will be SushiSamba’s third location in the UK and its first outside of London.
The new Edinburgh outlet will join those in Amsterdam, Las Vegas and its two London sites at Heron Tower and Covent Garden.
SushiSamba wil deliver a blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, culture, music and design in the Scottish capital.
It will feature a main dining room with striking views of Edinburgh’s iconic skyline, a vibrant bar & lounge, chef’s table, and outdoor terraces.
Ed Webb, director of development management at St James Quarter, said: “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.
“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.”
Omar Gutierrez, Chief Operating Officer of SushiSamba said: “Edinburgh and its international appeal make it a natural fit for SushiSamba’s third UK location as we continue to expand our brand globally.”
This latest signing at St James Quarter is set to open the first phase of its retail, dining and leisure elements in Spring of 2021.
The development will feature more than 80 brands, a mix of restaurants and bars, an Everyman Cinema and a Roomzzz Aparthotel.
