Chef and maître d' duo Gordon Craig and Richard Conway, who worked together at Edinburgh's former Michelin-starred Plumed Horse, have opened their own restaurant called Field in the Scottish capital.
The pair have taken over the former site of Home Bistro in Edinburgh's Newington district, which they refurbished and this week reopened as a 22-seat restaurant.
Chef Craig was sous chef at the Plumed Horse, which is run by chef proprietor Tony Borthwick. He has also done stints at the Waterside Inn and trained at Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire and Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham.
Partner Conway meanwhile was maitre d' and then manager of the Plumed Horse and previously managed the Wee Restaurant at North Queensferry.
Commenting on Field's ethos, Conway said: "We're following the Michelin quality concept but without any pretentiousness and concentrating on providing great value for money."
Craig added: "Field will serve the food I like to eat myself. 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."
Field is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Saturday.
