Starting off in Glasgow, we learn that Jaqueline O'Donnell
is closing her Sisters
Restaurant in Kelvingrove on the 21st of December.
Jak has announced that she is to take early retirement.
She has done 21 years in Glasgow's restaurant and, as she points out in her Facebook statment, that is 'no mean feat'.
She adds, 'The Sisters has become something of an institution over the years, chiefly because of our fabulous Scottish produce and great hospitality. It would be neither of those without the excellent attention from the team who make The Sisters as special as it is. Their hard work and dedication has made working over these past 21 years such good fun, for which I am immensely grateful... for now the main message we want to convey is one of thanks and gratitude to all of our wonderful customers for their unwavering support throughout the years. It has been a pleasure serving and getting to know you all.'
Have a long and happy retirement!
El Perro Negro expands
The great burger boom which took place in Glasgow a few years ago has definitely faded but the most talented pattie producers continue to thrive. The main pic is from their Facebook.
El Perro Negro have announced that they are to launch a new unit on Woodland Road on Friday 4th October.
If you like your burgers made with hormone-free meat from small farms then make tracks for 52 Woodlands Road.
Make ours an NYC, topped with bone marrow butter, Swiss cheese, pastrami, pickles and American mustard.
Lauder's back in business
We'll also mention the fact that The Lauder's pub is back in business after the 2018 fire which struck Victoria's nightclub.
Pizzas, wraps, tapas, burgers, grills, fish 'n' chips plus a whole lot more are on the venue at the Sauchiehall Street bar.
Last but not least in Glasgow, we see that Bowlarama may not have opened yet but they have released their Christmas menus.
The bowling, dining, dancing and drinking joint on Glassford Street promises that they are putting the 'finishing touches' to the new venture.
We look forward to it.
At the top of the this blog, we mentioned Edinburgh food news. We will return to this later this week but it seems that Hey Palu opened on Bread Street at the weekend.
It's billed as a 'modern, Italian bar'. We'll fill in the details later.
