Intimate, stylish café-bistro in fashionable Finnieston, serving local produce with international flare.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
When choosing location for any independent upscale eatery in town, Finnieston would surely be this decade’s destination of choice. The Scullery follows this trend with plenty of wood, exposed brickwork and wall hung mirrors reflecting warm light around the small rectangular space. Tempting aromas instantly appetise while perusing the succinct menu, limited to a handful of starters, mains and puddings. Start with hand-dived Scottish king scallops – impressive in size, golden in colour fading to a translucent soft centre, served with an intense earthy yet nutty sweet Jerusalem artichoke purée. Mains have an international feel from Kashmiri vegetable curry to pink lamb loin served with a kick from hummus and dukkah – an Egyptian aromatic seed and nut mix. Pork belly, farmed in Ayrshire and braised for twelve hours, simply melts in the mouth and works surprisingly well with cubes of spicy carrot cake, with black pudding crumb adding further texture and a deep savoury undernote. Service from the young enthusiastic team is on point with the informality of the restaurant. In an area now abundant with choice, they are certainly holding their own.

A bright and buzzing atmosphere offers food designed for casual dining
Finnieston’s latest opener is every bit as hip-looking as the numerous newish spots up and down the road, with an attractive, crisp and modern interior with big windows and period detailings, all done up in wood and brick. Time-served Ubiquitous Chip…
