Craig Grozier announces pop up dinners in preparation for the opening of his first restaurant, ‘Fallachan Kitchen’ this Autumn.
The first preview dinner will be held on the 25th of August at Acid Bar, SWG3, Glasgow. The communal dining area will accommodate 30 guests and provide them with an opportunity to get a taste of what to expect at Fallachan Kitchen. Grozier will serve a 9-course tasting menu, that has been curated to reflect the philosophy of Fallachan Dining, renowned for working directly with growers, foragers, butchers and fishermen to create a unique, modern Scottish style of dining. The evening will also host live music from local artist, DJ Andrew Divine.
It’s great to see Craig still passionate about food and it’s been too long for his first kitchen to open (we ate with him way back in 2015!)
This menu will feature the first of the seasons grouse, house-made charcuterie, heavily-peated Octomore sourdough and Glasgow’s own Bare Bones chocolate, as well as other local and seasonal produce from around Scotland.
“We’re incredibly excited to provide a preview into the culinary offering that we intend to bring to Glasgow diners” remarked Chef Craig Grozier. “These pop-up dinners are a unique opportunity for us to share and give guests a taste of the immersive dining experiences that they can expect from our one-table open kitchen space.”
“I am passionate about the craft of cooking, and I am excited to bring this ethos to our first preview dinner at the Acid Bar. To showcase Scotland’s larder, we’re looking forward to using the new season young grouse which will be served with girolles that we forage for ourselves. The drinks list and pairing will also have a similar ethos – including English wines from Gusborne in Kent, cocktails from the amazing Islay based Botanist Gin and Bruichladdich Distillery. We will use wild ingredients, like in our welcome cocktail; So fresh, so green, made with The Botanist gin, borage foraged from around Glasgow, blackcurrant leaf and vinaigrette syrup.”
The bespoke events will serve as a preview of what’s to come at the highly anticipated Fallachan Kitchen which will open as a private dining room and one-table public restaurant space in Finnieston this Autumn.
Tickets to the event can be purchased here and are priced from £80. The event will start from 7pm and is located at the Acid Bar in SWG3, 100 Eastvale Place, Glasgow.
The second pop up dinner in the Acid Bar will be held on Saturday 30th September and can be purchased here.
