Louisiana Restaurant, Gala Casino, 61 Broomielaw, Glasgow – Oct 2012

We were invited along to try out the re-vampled menu at Louisiana.  We jumped at the chance to try some different food, as well as to get inside a Casino.

Inside the drab exterior is a totally different world, chandeliers, glamourous ladies (and men!) as well as plush carpeting.

Looking down from the bar/dining area to the floor below.

 

The menu looked amazing, we were drooling all day at the thought of it.

 After being filled with lots of delicious cocktails, out came a shedload of canapes.  The media darlings of course loved it, no need to eat just pose,but us foodies, show us the real food!
We did get to see what the real portion sizes were, at the side of the restaurant were plates laid out with the dishes already cooked.  The canapes were lovely, mini versions of the dishes but this doesn’t really give the real impression of the dish I think.

Looks impressive but will really have to go back incognito to get a proper taste of the food and how the flavours work together.
You don’t have to be a member of the Casino to dine, and the restaurant is open 5pm until 3am.
Thanks to DADA events for the invitation!
