Hebridean-influenced cooking at a family-run venue

A venue named after the famously greedy seabird surely has the diner's interest at heart, but the Reid family enterprise has more of a backstory than that. Conceived after a journey of gastronomic exploration undertaken in the summer of 2012 to the Hebridean coastlines of western Scotland, The Gannet makes a conscientious attempt to bring some of the bracing air of the wild islands to Finnieston. The culinary results are resonant and striking, and the presentations as modern as can be. That's seen to perfection in an opening course of poached and scorched leeks with burnt leek purée, salt-baked celeriac and pearl barley in hazelnut dressing, its assertive flavours and contrasting textures making a bold intro to mains such as sea bass with Barra cockles, purple sprouting broccoli, salsify, monk's beard and parsley root, or a regally presented serving of red deer with sweet-sour beetroot purée and whole heritage beets in a richly gamey jus. Glasgow food hero George Mewes supplies the thoroughbred farmhouse cheeses, if you're not intending to head in the direction of a dessert such as milk chocolate feuilletine with malted barley ice cream, or the tastebud-challenging parsnip mousse with candied parsnip, white chocolate and cloveroot ice cream.
