Epicures, the Glasgow eatery which closed earlier this month on Hyndland Road, has revealed it is re-opening on 14th August having joined forces with Cail Bruich to launch ‘epicures by Cail Bruich’.
The 3 AA Rosette-awarded chef team from Cail Bruich will be taking over in the kitchen at epicures with the initial offering focussing on brunch and a new dedicated bakery, inspired by their CB Bakery which they launched at the height of lockdown, offering artisan cakes, pastries and breads to sit in or takeaway.
Oli Norman, owner of epicures said, “I’ve long been a huge fan of Cail Bruich and the exceptional quality of food, drink and service and am really excited about Chris and his team taking over the operation at Epicures. Throughout lockdown visits to the CB Bakery were a highlight so to bring the offering to epicures is a real joy, along with taking the food offering to a whole new level.”
Chris Charalambous, owner of Cail Bruich said, “Epicures is a Glasgow institution and to be offered the chance to put our spin on a neighbourhood brunch spot is very exciting. We’ll follow the same ethos as we always have of sourcing artisan producers and treating their produce with care & respect.
“The menu will reflect our passion for creating modern, eye-catching & most importantly tasty dishes. A bakery is something I’ve always wanted to open and seeing how well it was received during lockdown, it made perfect sense to give it a permanent home. We’re firm believers that every neighbourhood should have a good bakery, so we hope that the new Epicures is the hub of Hyndland.”
The in-house bakery will run daily from 8am serving homemade cakes, fresh bread and sweet and savoury pastries to sit in or takeaway. Brunch will consist of all the classics, but in true Cail Bruich style, the dishes will have a modern Scottish twist. They’ll also be serving up a range of sandwiches, salads and set epicures feasts using the best seasonal Scottish ingredients all with an innovative Cail Bruich twist.
