San Vincenzo in Bothwell; Bath Street Burger in Glasgow city centre and Gautam in Edinburgh - read all about it.

San Vincenzo (main pic from Facebook) opened on Main Street in Bothwell this week.

It's a very stylish Italian restaurant and deli which is open from breakfast through to dinner.

Whether you want a chicken Milanese sandwich or a three course feast, they can sort you out.

The extensive menu ranges from pasta and pizza to tomahawk steaks and mini racks of lamb served with slow-cooked lamb leg croquettes and an aubergine caponeta.

We would start with the ricotta-stuffed, deep-fried zucchini flowers followed by the grilled mixed fish.

Although we are very tempted by the crab ravioli. And the pappardelle with wild boar ragu. Or the Guinea fowl with porcini mushrooms, grappa and dauphinoise potatoes.

You get the idea. There are lots of regional Italian dishes and they all sound very appetising.

Burgers on Bath Street

Heading back into the centre of town, Bath Street Burger is launching on...

Well, you can probs figure out where it is located. It has pencilled in an opening date for Wednesday 14th November.

The new venture promises 'awesome burgers, craft beers, cocktails, shakes and great music from noon-1am every day'.

The premises previously housed Prep Fitness Kitchen.

This blogger suspects that 'awesome burgers' may find a more appreciative audience than calorie-counted health dishes.

New Indian at Meadowbank

Zipping across the M8, we are looking forward to the imminent launch of Gautam's on Dalziel Place by Meadowbank.

The premises used to house Xanadu, a Chinese restaurant which was there since forever.

The new venture will be a Nepalese and Indian restaurant.

They are taking bookings from Saturday 17th November and are offering a 20% discount on food for the first week.

Count us in for the Himalayan hotpot lamb.

We will be back tomorrow with all the lowdown on the launch night of So L.A., the latest launch from Rusk and Rusk, the team behind Hutchesons City Grill, The Butchershop Bar & Grill and The Spanish Butcher.
