Gaucho – the celebrated Argentinian steak restaurant – has opened a flagship restaurant and bar in Scotland this November.
The new 120 cover luxury restaurant is based in Edinburgh’s prestigious St Andrew Square and has seen the creation of 50 new jobs including openings for chefs, front of house and bar staff.
Gaucho’s wine list provides a choice of more than 200 exclusive Argentinian wines, some of which are produced at the restaurant’s vineyard in Mendoza, as well as an extensive range of Scottish whiskies.
Gaucho’s Edinburgh location is a homecoming for the restaurant’s free-to-roam, grass-fed Aberdeen Angus beef. Originally from Scotland, Aberdeen Angus was first introduced to Argentina in 1879 by Don Carlos Guerrero. Today, all Argentina’s Aberdeen Angus are direct descendants of Guerrero’s original Scottish cattle – Cinderella, Aunt Lee and Virtuoso, the bull.
The launch of the Edinburgh restaurant has also seen see Chef Director, Jamie Robertson, return to his roots.
Born and raised in Bonnyrigg, Robertson worked alongside celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, before joining Gaucho in 2012; overseeing menu development and supply chain.
