Restaurant chain Di Maggio is taking two units at the new Raeburn Place retail and leisure development in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge.
It is the latest tenant to sign up for the controversial development which is due to announce the letting of the last remaining unit. Construction is under way with the steel framework now taking shape.
Di Maggio Restaurant Group has 18 outlets across the country, including Café Andaluz and Amarone in central Edinburgh. Details of its latest venture have not been revealed other than that it will be an all-day, family-friendly outlet.
David Newlands, chairman of the Raeburn Place Foundation, said: “The trustees have selected tenants who we believe will offer an attractive mix of products and services, helping to attract more people into Stockbridge.

“The DRG is an excellent fit for us and we are delighted to have them on board. They have an excellent track record, providing a variety of eateries adapted to suit their location and market. We are looking forward to seeing what they will devise for Raeburn Place, enhancing the area’s already deserved reputation as a destination for discerning diners.”
Raeburn Place Foundation is a charity aiming to provide access to sport, sports programmes and healthy recreation for all. The commercial development is intended to help the organisation become self-financing. Tenants already signed up include Marks & Spencer, a Waterstones book shop, Charlie Miller hairdresser and Milk & Honey ice cream parlour.
