He's chef patron of  Restaurant Mark Greenaway, which is based on 69 North Castle Street, Edinburgh.  The restaurant first opened in 2011 at its original location at No 12 Picardy place, where mark soon gained a superb reputation for its imaginative, creative and modern style of cooking.

Mark Greenaway received nationwide acclaim following the opening of his eponymous restaurant in Edinburgh in February 2011. The following January Mark was the only Scottish chef to be newly awarded 3 AA Rosettes for outstanding cuisine.  In April 2012 Mark represented Scotland on BBC2’s Great British Menu and appears again in the 2013 series.

Mark’s menus are always intriguing with a presentation that is pleasing to both eye and palate.
