90 restaurants take part in Brick by Brick Appeal

Glasgow’s Hospice gets opt

Chefs Ryan James and Jacqueline O’Donnell are pictured launching a charity initiative which saw a variety of Glasgow restaurants making a 50p or £1 donation to the The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice Brick by Brick Appeal for every booking made during the Dining in The City fortnight which was ending as we went to press and which was part of the new Glasgow Restaurant Festival which ran for almost a month. The Glasgow Restaurant Festival was the result of a collaboration between Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB), Scottish Enterprise and the Glasgow Restaurant Association (GRA). No doubt to persuade diners out during what can be a quieter time of the year. The Festival included Pop-up Dining experiences, by different Glasgow chefs every day, in a stunning Spiegeltent within the Merchant City as well as Dining in the City. Altogether around 90 restaurants participated. Perhaps pub and bar owners should take note… how about a Glasgow or even a Scottish Festival of Pubs and Bars?
