UK: Alain and Michel Roux will launch £3m restaurant at the Balmoral hotel

Alain and Michel Roux have announced plans to launch a restaurant in Edinburgh's Balmoral Hotel.

Alain Roux, chef-patron of the three Michelin-starred Waterside Inn in Bray, Berkshire, will serve as signature chef at the brasserie and bar. The venture will replace Hadrian's brasserie and the Balmoral bar at the five-red-AA-star, 188-bedroom Rocco Forte hotel.

Alain Roux said: "This exciting new brasserie will be defined by a seasonally changing menu rooted in French bistro dishes, in the classic modern style, irresistibly simple, delicious food. We will be led by the fantastic array of Scottish ingredients and flavours to include beautiful seafood platters and tasty sharing plates at the bar. I want to serve the dishes that I love to cook myself at home and seek out with family and friends when we go out to eat."

Michel Roux, commented: "The new brasserie marks a unique alliance between the Roux and Forte families. As leaders in our fields, our families are committed to excellence, impeccable service and promoting the next generation with my son, Alain leading the restaurant."

The restaurant is set to debut in May.
