St James Quarter completes Leith Street Eats line-up with Wingstop and Thai Express Kitchen
St James Quarter, the recently launched £1 billion shopping destination in Edinburgh, has signed up two new restaurants for its Leith Street Eats quick service pitstop dining area.
Chicken wing restaurant Wingstop has taken a 1,800 square foot unit on level one of the space to add to its 1,500 branches worldwide, while Thai Express has signed for 2,600 square feet of space for its new format Thai Express Kitchen.
Sachin Pattani, managing director of Thai Express, said: “We have really pushed the boat on the design by introducing one of a kind double decker seating, a hanging garden, and an impressive 12 metre mural, as well as extending our food and drink offering with exciting twists on your traditional Thai classics. St. James is the perfect setting to unveil our new concept.”
The additions will complete the line-up at Leith Street Eats which also includes Five Guys, Tortilla. Edinburgh-based Maki & Ramen and gourmet kebab brand GDK.
Ed Corrigan of St James Quarter said: “We have been blown away by the success of our restaurants and food outlets so far at St James Quarter. Proof of this is our continuing to attract sensational new brands of the calibre of Wingstop within just weeks of our launch. We are delighted to land a global first with Thai Express Kitchen, a brand new format which will be perfect for St James Quarter’s premium standing and will expand on our all-day and night time offer. The brands we have put together at Leith St Eats are unashamedly bold, consistently high-quality, they know how to embrace technology and connect with their style-conscious customers.”
