A popular contemporary sculpture park and art gallery in Edinburgh has teamed up with one of the capital's top restaurants to give visitors to the attraction an exciting new dining offering. 

Jupiter Artland has created a partnership with modern Scottish restaurant Fhior to launch a new seasonal menu in Café Party, the park’s in house eatery.

Headed up by Scott and Laura Smith, Fhior (from the Gaelic for true or honest) is known for its modern, hyper-seasonal menus that reflect a dedication to sustainable practice alongside culinary excellence.

The Café Party menu will follow this ethos and reflect the changing seasons by showcasing the very best in local produce. Originally opened in 2017, Café Party is a permanent commission by Swiss artist and Glasgow  School of Art graduate, Nicolas Party and offers visitors a fantastical and unique experience when dining at Jupiter which includes specially designed crockery, furniture and large vivid wall paintings all heavily influenced by Parisian bistros.

Co-owner of Fhior, Laura Smith said: “A collaboration in this sense is something very different for us and will take us into new territory. We will be providing highly accessible and vibrant café food that can be enjoyed by everyone.

“We feel very lucky that our first journey into this area of our business is with Jupiter Artland. Nicky and the team at Jupiter are incredibly inspiring with their energy and ambition to continually grow and develop, and we are honoured to now be a part of this journey.”

On Sunday 26 May, Sunday 9 June and Sunday 14 July Fhior will host a series of bespoke evening dinners at Café Party that will showcase the seasonal cuisine they have become so well known for.

Founded by philanthropist art collectors Nicky and Robert Wilson in 2009, Jupiter Artland is home to five galleries and an expansive outdoor sculpture collection featuring 35 permanent site-specific commissioned artworks from some of the world’s most significant artists including Antony Gormley, Charles Jencks, AnishKapoor and Phyllida Barlow.

Set within the 100 acre grounds of Bonnington House, a 17th centuryJacobean Manor House, the park was recently named as a 5-Star Visitor Attraction by VisitScotland.
