Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Despite being part of a UK-wide chain of Blackhouse steak restaurants, the Grill on the Corner – its bright strip-light lettering an unmistakable sight at the intersection of Bothwell and Wellington streets – strives to retain an element of independence, with some regional identity courtesy of locally-brewed WEST lager and Irn Bru. Suffice to say, it’s the cow meat that above all else keeps a steady stream of customers filling this large, low-lit city centre favourite seven nights a week. The 200g fillet is a house best seller. Less so the wagyu fillet, but then it’s only high-rollers that can afford to lay out £55 for a cut of this famously tender Japanese breed. Among their monthly-changing best of British beef specials, a sirloin of Redman Limousin comes in just the right side of £30. Unusually for a steakhouse, fajitas are another Grill on the Corner classic and they sell like loco, even the in-flight meal style tray plate they come on is a bit cheesy. Once you’re done dining you can relax with a cocktail in the spacious bar through until midnight.
