Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Spanning Cafezique and Bakery By Zique, and even Monachyle Mhor and its affiliates if you count her husband Dick Lewis’s side of the business, Mhairi Taylor’s Zique brand has long been a stamp of quality. Opened in 2018 in the premises which previously housed Delizique, Gather brings something to the stable which has arguably been missing – an urban fine-dining experience. Behind huge floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking red sandstone tenements, the vibe is sophisticated, laid-back, almost Scandi-cool – pale whites and greys contrasted by noisy pops of colour in the furnishings and lighting. Comprising European-inspired dishes made with the best of Scottish seasonal produce, much of it from their Trossachs estate, every dish on the menu can be served either as a large or small plate, giving you flex to do sharers or designated plates. Bloody-red beetroot risotto laced with smoked mozzarella is exceptional. Tender venison meatballs with black kale and walnut salsa served in a porridge of polenta is abundant in flavours. A sumptuous apple and calvados toffee tart for two with ice-cream completes a meal that barely misses a beat.
