Former Diageo business manager Michael Adair is to open his first licensed trade venture Brodies, a casual dining restaurant on the site of the former Indian restaurant Shimla Pink’s on Glasgow’s Southside.
Adair, who left Diageo in 2013, took over the lease of the building in January and intends to open the restaurant at the end of April.
The 100 cover restaurant has been completely refurbished and is being designed to reflect the trend for casual dining with a mixture of booths and tables.
Speaking to DRAM, Michael said, “The trade are more evolved now, in that customers will come in for a drink and then stay for something to eat and then for the entire evening. This will work well for the southside as there’s a lot of people who don’t mind travelling but don’t want to go into the city centre.”
Brodies will be open for lunch and dinner, and will serve a mainly Mediterranean menu.
