Business partners Andy McCartney and Scott Leask have opened Glasgow west end pizza place Nonna Said on Candleriggs in the former Khublai Khan and will open The Duke’s Umbrella on the corner of Argyle Street and James Watt Street on May 17.
Andy told DRAM, “The Duke’s Umbrella has been a long time in the making. It was supposed to open in December but couldn’t because of the third lockdown. The idea for Nonna Said sprung up on the back of a successful takeaway operation.”
Nona Said is a 130-capacity restaurant with a 1 am licence.
The Duke’s Umbrella will have a rustic, artisan feel, is fronted by John Molloy (pictured), Development Chef alongside General Manager Craig McKay.
John said, “We will be giving our food the attention it deserves and treating the ingredients in the same way fine dining restaurants do. All while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere and delivering the sort of food you’ve always wanted from your local.”
