Tom Kitchin was already a well-established chef-restaurateur on the Edinburgh restaurant scene with the Kitchin, but a £1m revamp of the Leith restaurant in December 2014 moved it onto another level. Later in 2015, the Kitchin picked up five AA rosettes, making it the only restaurant in Scotland to hold the honour.
