A lighter lunchtime menu will also be offered including grilled seafood, seasonal fresh salads, homemade pasta dishes and specials.
The restaurant will have 70-cover restaurant and include a contemporary bar, private dining space, as well as an intimate outdoor area called The Snug.
Dalgleish is well-known in the industry having launched a number of food festivals including The Food of Love and The Signature Food Festival.
“It’s important to me to bring something new to Aberdeen. It’s my home and I’ve seen it change so much over the last few years and recognised a huge opportunity to breathe new life into the hospitality industry in the north east of Scotland."
"After years of running some of the best kitchens in the city and cooking alongside the best chefs in the UK, it’s the perfect time for me to take the jump and open my own place."
"Amuse will be the perfect balance of good Scottish food, bursting with flavour in an environment that doesn’t feel stuffy or formal. It’s all about the food and I hope guests will appreciate that.”
