Michelin-starred Scottish chef Graeme Cheevers has debuted his £350K Glasgow restaurant, the 60-cover Unalome on Kelvingrove Street. It’s where The Sisters restaurant used to be following owner Jacqueline O’Donnell’s retirement.
Unalome is a Buddhist symbol that represents the path each person takes in life. Cheevers said he chose Unalome as the name to signal “something new and completely different for Glasgow’s food scene”.
Cheevers won Michelin stars at both Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond and the Isle of Eriska Hotel and he has also worked with Geoffrey Smeddle at fine dining restaurant Étain.
He said. “There is nowhere else I would rather launch my own restaurant than in my home city of Glasgow. It is scary going solo but I feel like I’m now at a point in my career where I’m ready and I have the confidence and experience to take it forward and make it a success.”
