However, it is..! Located along from Glasgow Art School, Singl-end made a

Food Review: Rioja, 1116 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8TD

 Tapas Dining in Finnieston, Glasgow Named after the wine region in Spain, Rioja in Hipster-friendly Finnieston is competing with the likes of The Gannet, Ox and Finch, Porter & Rye a result this is not your usual tapas experience. The concept is: modern tapas, fine-dining tapas or tapas with a twist (take your pick).


Food Review: 111 by Nico, 111 Cleveden Rd, Glasgow, G12 0JU

111 by Nico used to be Simply Fish (which served some of the best fish and chips in Glasgow, and before that it was an Italian restaurant called La Famiglia.  It's still the same owners, same chef but now with a more varied menu and focus on fine-dining.  It's slightly hidden away, between a Spar
