The Newport will serve 60-covers over two floors, with the kitchen cooking Scottish food using local ingredients.
Scott said: “It was always my intention to open my first restaurant in the Fife and Dundee area. This is where I grew up and drew all my inspiration from. The Newport gives me everything I wanted in my first venture.
“Newport on Tay is a beautiful coastal town with the most incredible views across the river. The Newport is a popular venue and with the addition of the restaurant I am looking forward to being part of this wonderful community.
“My food will reflect the natural surroundings and I am very excited about the future The Newport will bring.”
