By | May 30, 2010

Just 12 months after setting up business in Edinburgh 21212 Restaurant has been awarded ‘Restaurant Newcomer of the Year’ at the CIS Excellence Awards 2010, at the Hilton in Glasgow on 27th May. Within one year, 21212 have won a number of prestigious awards and last night Katie O’ Brien, Paul Kitching’s partner accepted the prestigious award on behalf of 21212.

Since opening in May 2009, 21212 has received acclaim from diners and reviewers, as well as a coveted Michelin Star awarded in January of this year.  Michelin stars are awarded to restaurants offering the finest cooking and Paul Kitching who has firmly made his mark in Edinburgh joins this elite band of restaurants. Juniper, Paul’s previous restaurant in Manchester received many accolades and praise from fellow chefs and reviewers alike and was called ‘The Shining Star of the North’ by Gordon Ramsay.

The menu at 21212 is a modern French style of cookery.  Paul’s dishes are a composition of flavours that enhance the whole dining experience. The menu consists of combinations of dishes with a wonderful selection of ingredients, prepared by Paul and his team of eight chefs. The five course gourmet menu consists of a choice of two dishes on the starter, main course and dessert courses, which is why the restaurant is named 21212. For Paul it’s always been about the whole dining experience, from the décor to the added extras – his unique style and detail which he wants to shine through.
