British, Modern Restaurants in Glasgow
1. Cail Bruich British, Modern restaurant in Glasgow 725 Great Western Rd - G12
“Really carefully thought out and extremely well executed dishes” – “some of the best in Scotland” – “showcase the best of Scottish produce” at Paul & Chris Charalambous’s under-the-radar, yet exceptional West End outfit. “Even when a dish is a little challenging – such as a pre-dessert of white asparagus parfait with black olive meringue and marinated strawberries – when eaten the combination was a delicious revelation”. “A slight refresh to the décor has worked well, though there’s not much they can do about the unprepossessing exterior”.
2. Alchemilla British, Modern restaurant in Glasgow 1126 Argyle Street - G3
This three-year-old modern bistro “on Finneston’s eating strip” has won renown as one of the city’s better dining destinations. All reports are full of the highest praise for “small dishes bursting with flavour” and food that “genuinely melts in the mouth”.
3. The Gannet British, Modern restaurant in Glasgow 1155 Argyle St - G3
Peter McKenna & Ivan Stein’s stripped-back Finnieston venture has made waves since opening six years back; “the cooking (modern British) is perhaps more serious here than the bare-brick walls décor suggests” (being “full of interesting small dishes, but not too ‘out there’”). In fact, more than one reporter notes “it deserves a Michelin star” such is the quality of the food but – perhaps as prices are not supercheap – stops short of awarding it full marks for value.
4. The Ivy Buchanan Street British, Modern restaurant in Glasgow 106 Buchanan Street - G1
Opened in summer 2019 after the survey’s conclusion, Glasgow’s outpost of the ever-growing brasserie chain (in the works since 2017), is housed in a former Nationwide bank and features over 220 covers, plus two bars, a private dining space and ‘Parisian-style outdoor seating’.
