Apex Hotels is teaming up with chef Tony Singh to launch a “fun restaurant” at one of its Edinburgh properties.
Tony Singh at Apex Grassmarket will open on 21 March, following on from the success of the pop-up restaurant Road Trip the chef ran at the hotel in August 2015.
The new restaurant will be informal and lighthearted, celebrating Singh’s Scottish and Asian roots and his 25 years’ of culinary experience, cooking everything from street food to fine-dining.
Dishes will include haggis pakora, Scotland’s national dish with a twist, and new dishes such as fish balls, inspired by a recipe from the Philippines. Desserts will offer tuck shop floats with ice-cream topped with penny sweets.
Most main courses will cost under £10, including a sirloin steak dish.
Singh said: “I am really looking forward to returning to Apex Grassmarket, it was so much fun in August with Road trip. It’s all about the food, so get down to the Old Town for a mash up and chow down.”
Stuart Douglas, general manager of the Apex Grassmarket, said the hotel was “delighted” to be working with Singh. “Tony’s passion for tastes and presentation can be enjoyed by visitors to Edinburgh, his loyal foodie followers, Edinburgh locals, and of course our hotel residents who will find a very different dining offer this year.”
Singh ran the Oloroso in Edinburgh for 11 years until 2012. He also operated Tony’s Table in the city for two years. Earlier in his career, he worked at Gravetye Manor, near east Grinstead, West Sussex, and the St Ermin’s hotel, London.
Apex Hotels is a family-run group of hotels with nine properties in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.
