James and Louise Rusk, co-founders of RUSK & RUSK, said: “We are delighted to announce The Spanish Butcher, Edinburgh will officially open to the public on Friday, May 10.

“North Castle Street has a remarkable storied history, and we are excited to be contributing to its placemaking within the capital.

“Our commitment to this new restaurant, and to the city, is very much reflected in the quality and detail of The Spanish Butcher design.

“We hope our customers love its stylish mid-century aesthetic and welcoming neighbourhood vibe, and we can’t wait to share details soon on the menu.”
