In much the same way that old school hip hop don’t stop, the new Glasgow restaurants just keep coming. Tribeca Metro, Pianola and Co, plus, we think The Boyd Roderick, are all greeting their first customers this week.
Starting in the Merchant City, the latest venture from the Tribeca Group is poised to open on 51 Bell Street on Friday.
The Tribeca restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh have earned a reputation for generous plates of classic American, diner-style food.
We can’t imagine that the new branch will be radically different in a root and branch way… However, their Facebook does mention their journey and how they are evolving so watch this space.
Check Tribeca dining deals on 5pm from here.
New Glasgow restaurants: The Boyd Roderick
Meanwhile, in the ever busy Shawlands neighbourhood, The Boyd Roderick looks very close to opening.
Or at least it was at the time of writing. Events may have already over taken us.
Formerly The Burrell Bar on Pollokshaws Road, it promises to be a bar, restaurant and coffee shop with a focus on Scottish produce.
Coffee will come from the Dear Green Place and the bar will be providing two pint growlers for those who want to take a beer home.
Various news sources have quoted a figure of £280,000 for the refurb.
More news as we get it.
New Glasgow restaurants: Pianola and Co
Switching across town Broomhill and Crow Road, Pianola and Co officially opened its doors earlier this week.
With lots of marble, wood panelling and beautiful hanging lights – plus a pianola – it looks like a classic European brasserie.
We are not going to pretend that we are fully confident of our info here but simple, classic Italian dishes have been mentioned.
Get your Evening Citizen!
We understand it will be called The Citizen after The Evening Citizen, a former newspaper which was printed out of the building back in the dim mists of the 20th century.
This blogger is a big fan of the way that DRG used the building’s heritage when they opened The Anchor Line on St Vincent Place.
Friends whose family had worked for the Anchor Line shipping company said it brought back lots of memories.
I’m keen to see how they use The Citizen’s history to evoke the old newsrooms.
