Top 8 Steak Restaurants in Glasgow December 2015
Glasgow, we love a juicy steak, well apart from the vegetarians in the office. Have you ever looked at someone the moment their steak is placed down in front of them? Its almost its like meat porn. Call it meat eroticism if you will, (if you do decide to use our term at least give us the credit). Anyway we’ve managed to diverge from the topic in hand.
Here are 8 of the best steaks available in and around the city centre, enjoy.
Alston Bar & Grill – Central Station
Situated on top of Grahamston, a village demolished 100 years ago to make way for the creation of Glasgow Central Station. The dramatic settings are only equalled by the quality of the steak on offer, with a wide variety of menus to choose from, Alston offers high end and more expensive cuisine alongside the more modest of menus.
Everyone can experience dining in the most extravagant of Glasgow restaurants. N.B Cocktails are heavily gin based.
Butchershop Bar and Grill – Sauchiehall Street
Still unquestionably one of Glasgow’s greatest steaks. Directly facing Kelvingrove museum, Butchershop Bar and Grill, offers the finest selection of steaks in Glasgow. The Butchershop menu has a diagram of a cow as its front cover on the menu. This cover allows the waiters and waitresses to show you exactly where on the cattle your chosen steak has being cut from.
Although at times Butchershop Bar and Grill can be slightly expensive, the quality you experience and the expertise provided by all levels of staff will leave you feeling as if you’ve received value for money, each bite tasting more succulent than the last.
Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill – Waterloo Street
Quickly quickly gaining a reputation in Glasgow for high quality dining at pretty reasonable prices, The Ingot Hotel based Steakhouse is specifically tailored to the tastes of the original enfant’ terrible’ of the cheffing industry Marco Pierre White. A restaurant with the quality guarantee of a 3 star Michelin Award winning chef.
Le Bistro Beaumartin – Hope Street
A quiet unassuming delight on Hope Street, A retro decorated French restaurant, who serve an unbelievable steak, literally cut through the perfectly cooked steak like velvet you can also be served with genuine french fries. Bistro Beaumartin might be one of very few French inspired restaurants in the city, but dining in it, is like being transported to a quiet classic restaurant in Paris.
The Anchor Line – St Vincent’s Street
A new entry onto our list and a fine purveyor of meat inspired dishes. One of the best restaurants/bars in Glasgow. The Anchor Line on St Vincent’s St guarantees a 21 day maturity on the bone before reaching your plate. The high quality restaurant also offers Chateaubriand, (sharing steak) with potatoes and sauce of your choice.
Bowery Bar & Restaurant – Queen Street
With ratings of between four and five stars, on Trip Advisor, and recently having underwent a £150,000 makeover, Bowery Bar and Restaurant has earned a place on our top eight list. Offering a slice of Americana directly on your plate, Bowery can offer even the lightest of eaters with a quality steak based meal. Replacing the Independent Bar & Grill, Bowery is certainly winning over the city’s steak fans with its wide range of meals, cooked perfectly to individual palates. Bowery is certainly worth a visit.
The Trading House – St Vincent’s Street
Considerably new to the industry, but in no way intimidated by the competition in Glasgow. Trading House has pulled out all the stops to ensure that from the first second you walk through the door, you’re impressed. Luckily the food is sublime, and the rapport between the staff is inspiring. Their 90z Rib Eye, was so tasty it could bring a tear to a glass eye. You will not be disappointed.
Hutchesons Bar & Brasserie, Ingram Street
One of, if not the, most glamourous of eating establishments in the fair city of Glasgow, Hutcheson’s prides itself on quality dining and dining in quality. Hutcheson’s was voted Best New Restaurant in the Scottish Variety Awards and when sitting in its ceremonious surroundings is similar to how a meal in Downton Abbey would seem. The Grade A listed building has been converted into a three floor restaurant of the utmost elegance. Expect to pay a pretty penny though.
