New restaurants in Glasgow? Where do we start?

How about the West End?

Non Viet Hai, on Great Western Road, is the new sister restaurant to Non Viet on Sauchiehall Street.

From fantastic spring rolls to bowls of authentic pho, both places can satisfy your Vietnamese cravings.

New restaurants in Glasgow: Rossini

We also have our eye on Rossini.

Taking shape on Hyndland Road, in the premises formerly occupied by Tinto, Rossini is, as you may have guessed, an Italian restaurant.

We understand that it is being set up by Maurizio and Ester Rossini, the same couple that operate the popular North Star on Queen Margaret Drive.

All being well, Rossini will officially open its doors on Tuesday 24th July.

In previous blogs, we mentioned that Himalayan Dine was taking shape on Kilmarnock Road. It has now opened should you be in the market for a chicken momo or monkfish tikka.

Meanwhile, in Airdrie, The Staging Post is re-opening this weekend under new, independent management.

The Anderson Street venue will start serving drinks today with Michelle taking care of the food from Saturday.

Apparently, Michelle's steak pies are the bee's knees.

Freestyle your own bowl

Heading back into Glasgow, Sprigg is all set to launch in August.

According to their website, it will be an 'urban food takeaway'.

The main thrust of the menu is that customers will be able to build their own bowls.

For example, the lunch bowl means you can freestyle your lunch by choosing one premium ingredient, seven standard ingredients plus a garnish and a dressing for £6.

Another clucking pop-up in Tontine Lane

Also launching in August is The Bird Cage. Part of the Glasgow 2018 celebrations, The Bird Cage will be a pop-up in Tontine Lane.

We understand that it will specialise in 'gourmet chicken'. Look out for chicken on the spit, BBQ chicken, buttermilk fried chicken, pulled chicken, roast chicken...

You get the idea. If it involves chicken then you'll probably find it here.

Readers with long memories may recall the huge success of the Heverlee pop-up in Tontine Lane back in 2015.
