Hip pizza joint in BAaD – bringing art and food together in the heart of the Barras.
Magnificent 7, part of the Barras Art and Design (BAAD) outfit which is bringing hip diners to the Calton, is the second phase of a bold plan which started with the award-winning A’Challtainn – the respected fish restaurant upstairs. This trendy pizza joint offers more informal dining, based on the rule of seven: seven pizza choices, each costing seven pounds – even the seventh pizza is free as part of their loyalty scheme. The dining area is decisively utilitarian chic, a penchant for the upcycled, retro-vintage style obvious throughout the large space. The bar area serves both Magnificent 7 and A’Challtainn, which means a great selection of beers and wines are available. The pizza – complete with funky names to reflect the neighbourhood or ingredients – is crispy based, covered in a deep filling of sweet tomato sauce, with toppings including spicy chorizo and buffalo ricotta (aka the Beast of Calton), or vegan options such as Dear Green Place – loaded with squash, tofu and pine nuts. With live music and film nights, and ambitious plans for a bakery, this enticing spot has plenty to keep interest piqued.
