The Grill on the Corner
This elegant, stylish restaurant aims to impress, with great steaks, nice wines and smart service.
In the heart of Glasgow’s business district, the Grill on the Corner is swish and stylish with contemporary design features – low-hanging chandeliers, graphic wallpaper, and luxurious, long black curtains. A sharp-looking crowd fills the airy dining room, and conversation buzzes around. The menu is simple yet extensive, with steaks being the star. They are luscious and flavoursome, served in all manner of cuts with generously cut golden chips on the side. Other options include seafood dishes such as hake rarebit, which is much more delicately flavoured than expected, or a clutch of upscale pub food including chicken pie, sausage and mash, or fajitas. But you really should go for the steak, or be prepared to suffer some serious food envy. Starters include calamari, which is fine, but lacks the promised piri piri kick, or bang bang chicken skewers, with a smooth, creamy peanut sauce on the side. The retro cornflake cakes with the chocolate and salted caramel pot are strangely salty on their own, but after loading one up with the rich dessert, it all starts to make wonderful sense in your mouth.
