Square Meal Review of The Pelican Café ?

Pitched opposite the landmark Kelvingrove Museum, Jamie Harvie’s bar-cum-bistro scores heavily with its easy prices, quirky ambience and eco-friendly approach to sourcing. There are views of Glasgow’s most recognisable gothic building from the windows, while booths and banquettes are normally packed with foodies, families and culture vultures. The menu covers a lot of ground, from small plates of potted hot-smoked salmon or warm goats’ cheese Tatin to moules-frites, heavyweight seafood platters and venison steaks. There are also burgers and a raft of so-called ‘classics’ ranging from slow-roast pork belly and spicy sausage seasoned with ras-el-hanout to fennel and pea risotto with lemon and chervil. A mighty 200-bin wine list includes around 40 by the glass, and there are some intriguing beers too – note the selection from Williams Bros of Alloa. ’45-minute’ menus are handy for those heading to the Hydro Arena.
