The fine dining powerhouse that is Martin Wishart will expand his Caledonian empire this November with the opening of his fourth restaurant, at Malmaison Glasgow, housed in a former church in the city’s ‘Merchant City’. The acclaimed chef regularly wins praise from our reporters for his “faultless” cooking at Cameron House Hotel in Loch Lomond, Edinburgh’s The Honours Brasserie and his eponymous Restaurant Martin Wishart in Leith. Indeed, this consistency of high-level operation is matched by few, if any, English chefs.
His next venture, launching on 14 November as part of Malmaison’s multi-million pound hotel refurbishment, will also bear the name The Honours. Wishart says he has ‘always wanted’ to bring the concept to Glasgow.
The 106-cover restaurant will offer traditional and modern French cuisine, including roast Orkney scallop and Bellota ham and The Honours chateaubriand. It is believed that this is the first time a Malmaison has brought in a ‘name’ chef.
