    Operations Manager / Sommelier

    Growing up in the Loire Valley, Jean-Christophe Frogé has held a lifelong passion for wine. After training as a sommelier, he moved to Ireland and then Scotland to pursue his vocation, linking up with Martin Wishart at his flagship Edinburgh restaurant in 2002. It proved to be a career-defining move for Jean-Christophe.

    He first started with the intention of doing a year’s work experience as a sommelier. That turned out to be four years as Head Sommelier! Then in 2006 he moved on to experience other restaurants and other cultures. First of all Kuala Lumpur for a year where he worked as a consultant.  Then he moved on to Singapore for a couple of years where he worked for Hilton. In 2009 he came back to Restaurant Martin Wishart as Restaurant Manager. Jean-Christophe has a great eye for detail and a passion for customer care. In 2017 Jean-Christophe became the Operations Manager for the Martin Wishart Group.


    Head Chef

    Joe Taggart started a couple of months after the restaurant opened in 1999. He works closely with Martin to develop the dishes and train the chefs. His main responsibility is to maintain the consistency of the food.

    He is part of the fundamental framework that has made Martin’s restaurants such a success.


    “Helpful and highly polished staff deliver plate after plate of exquisite, precisely executed dishes that combine lightness of touch with depth of flavour”
