Chef Stuart Ralston to open tipo restaurant in Edinburgh

Celebrated chef, Stuart Ralston, will open a new restaurant, tipo, in Edinburgh in early 2023.

In March 2023, Stuart Ralston, celebrated chef patron of the Top 100 National Restaurant Aizle and Michelin Bib-awarded Noto, and his right-hand woman Jade Johnston will open tipo.

Centrally located on Hanover Street, tipo will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

tipo, named after the finest grade of flour in Italy most commonly used for making pasta, will be a casual dining restaurant serving small plates.

The menu will focus on the house-prepared speciality ingredients such as fresh pasta, cured and aged charcuterie alongside cocktails and small Domaine, artisanal family-owned wineries.

A family affair, at the helm will be Stuart’s brother Scott who was previously executive chef with Compass Group Edinburgh.

On the new opening Stuart said, "Jade and I have been talking about a new restaurant for a long time and it’s taken us a while to find the perfect location.

"We want to offer a neighbourhood style restaurant that will focus on simple pastas, dishes to share and vegetables prepared in ways you’d find in Europe alongside artisanal wines."

Stuart opened Aizle in 2014, a restaurant that prides itself on no traditional menu where guests are only privy to a six-course tasting menu when dining and that is dictated solely on availability of the seasons.

In 2019, Stuart opened Noto, an all-day dining casual restaurant whose menu has international repertoire with a strong Asian influence.
