High-end dining experience in the suburbs – exquisite presentation, inspired food parings and incredible value for money.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Flanked by a dry-cleaning shop on one side and a Spar supermarket on the other, 111 Cleveden Road is an unlikely address to find white truffle, sea herbs and saffron on your plate. Yet they and similarly glamorous ingredients feature in the cooking here, where a weekly changing set menu gives you two rather exciting courses for £19. Among five or so mains you might find hake with tender squid and deeply savoury guanciale, or delicious pork belly paired with sweet, lean fillet. This restaurant is partly a sort of academy for talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, but it’s perhaps a compliment that you wouldn’t notice – the open kitchen lets you see Nico Simeone and his team working away with skill and precision, while service is as smooth and professional as you could wish.

111 begins to add up

New neighbourhood restaurant in Kelvinside with a charitable direction is adding up on many fronts

Number 111 Cleveden Road has gone through a number of guises under chef-proprietor Nico Simeone, who wasn’t long out of his teens when he first opened La Famiglia on the spot in 2011. Awards came his way even as that restaurant morphed into Simply Fish…
