Burger mania continues
Jacker De Viande (‘Meat Jacker’ in French) became the latest addition to the growing Glasgow burger scene when it opened on West Regent Street in November. The basement burger and cocktail bar now occupies what was formerly Osteria Piero and prior to that Boozy Rouge. The area is prime territory for burger bars, with Burger Meats Bun and The Meat Bar on the same street.
Jacker De Viande was two years in getting off the ground and owner and Head Chef Nick MacIntyre brings experience from top London venues including Nobu and The Ivy. Now Nick is keen to impart his philosophy of quality and consistency to gain a foothold in the booming burger market in the city, “High standards and consistency are key to success. I wouldn’t serve a dish to our customers that I wouldn’t serve to a critic.”
But it’s not the only new burger place. Dennistoun Bar-B-Que also opened at the end of the year at 585 Duke Street. It calls itself a Texan Dive in the heart of Dennistoun. But already it is proving a massive hit with its pulled pork and ribs.
