“Always busy”, this simply appointed eatery in Glasgow’s trendy Finnieston district keeps design features to a minimum (sparse tables, bright sunny colours, plants in jars and stools surrounding the open kitchen), but the food makes punters sit up and take notice – thanks to chef Rosie Healey, who knows how to get the best from fresh seasonal ingredients.
The small-plates menu fuses Med-influenced ideas with top-drawer local produce for a line-up of perky grazing dishes that are “completely on point”. Fish might include octopus with clementine, capers and thyme, while meat eaters could opt for roast pigeon breast with quince and pickled red cabbage or ox cheek with polenta and Parmesan. Veggies have a decent choice (pappardelle with Gorgonzola and rainbow chard, say) and there are just three desserts – perhaps pannacotta with burnt caramel and pine-nut biscuit or walnut cake with hot chocolate sauce. “Terrific” staff are on hand to mix wacky cocktails and guide punters towards sharp picks from the offbeat wine list (look for the natural and organic selections).
