Edinburgh chef Mark Greenaway is moving his eponomously-named 36-seat restaurant from No 12 Picardy Place to an undisclosed location in the city centre.
A lease is currently being arranged on new and larger premises, details of which will be announced shortly.
Greenaway said: "My new premises are ideal for the growth of my restaurant; with 60 covers it's almost double the size. November is maybe not the best month to move, but it's a great time to capitalise on the upcoming Christmas trade.
"We'll be contacting everyone with forthcoming bookings at No 12 Picardy Place in the coming days to disclose the new location."
A spokesperson from the New Town Company, the owners of No 12 Picardy Place, which is also home to Steak restaurant and seven bedrooms, said:
"After a successful partnership, Mark is expanding and it's a natural progression for him to want a bigger restaurant. This also heralds a new and exciting chapter for 12 Picardy Place with the development of three more hotel rooms, bringing the total to 10."
"We wish Mark and his staff all the very best in their new location and we are sure it will lead to great success".
Restaurant Mark Greenaway, which opened in February 2011, achieved three-AA-rosettes in January 2012. After appearing in BBC TV's Great British Menu earlier this year, he will take part in Great British Menu does Comic Relief, due to be screened in early 2013.
