New openings in Glasgow

New openings in Glasgow

So I thought while I was on a blogging spree (yes, one post constitutes a spree for me just now), I'd do a short new restaurant round up. There's be loads of new places opening in Glasgow and it's really awesome to go and check them out to see how they're going. I'll list them by area and add a little bit of my own information with a link to the Yelp page so you can check out the reviews over there!

West End: 

Little Urban Achievers Club (please note this is now closed and has been replaced by The Crafty Pig)
Where the Wise Monkey used to be, and run by the people who do Lebowski's and The Finnieston. They do pizza (2-4-1 all the time) and hot dogs.

The Squid & Whale (Please note this is now closed and has been replaced by Crossing the Rubicon)
Where Bar Gambrino used to be. An unusual menu (for Glasgow) with items like grits, which I don't think you can get anywhere else. A firm favourite of mine.

Cushion & Cake (please note this is now closed)
adorable cake shop/tea room on Old Dumbarton Road. If there's lemonade cake while you're there – get it, it's seriously mind blowing!

Liquorice Tree - not a restaurant but worth a mention for having really lovely gifts (for someone else, or yourself!) on Great Western Road.

City Centre: 

Nippon Kitchen - a new Japanese restaurant in the city centre - hurrah! Japanese is my favourite food and I don't make it to Nanakusa enough. Nippon Kitchen is run by the same people. This is on my to-visit-immediately list!

Burger Meats Bun (please note this is now closed)
if you've not heard of here, where have you been? Lots of twitter hype before their opening, run by two seriously nice guys with Michelin backgrounds. Believe the hype, their burgers are awesome.

NY Slice 
I've not tried here yet but they're getting consistently good reviews so it's on my hit list!

Babu Bombay Street Kitchen 
Fresh, healthy Indian food aimed at the breakfast/lunch crowd (plus takeaway tiffins for your dinner). This place serves up mind-blowingly tasty food.

Merchant City:

The Plum Tree (Please note this is now closed and has been replaced by The Wilson Street Pantry)
Feel like something different for your dinner? At the Plum Tree they serve up delicious charcuterie platters and light bites in a relaxed setting. The staff are also super friendly!


Frosoulla's - run by the people who ran Greek Golden Kebab (over the road) this is a modern space with a huge menu to choose from. We visited for an unofficial Yelp event for International Food Night!

KP's Fishmongers There hasn't been a fishmonger in Newton Mearns for 30 years (so I'm told) and there's finally one just outside The Avenue. Hard to beat their friendly service, great selection and reasonable prices.

Ok, so that's the round up! What other new places have you found and discovered in Glasgow?
