McKirdy's Steakhouse

151 Morrison Street, Edinburgh, EH3 8AG

In these days when food provenance is to the fore, McKirdy’s finds itself suddenly en vogue. It’s doing nothing new, of course, just continuing to offer red meat and haggis crafted by the family butcher. Here, they can tell you exactly where the meat…


102 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G11 6NX

Update July 2013: Since this review was published, Tribeca has come under new management and had a refurbishment. The menu is still North American food. This café doesn't wear its USA theme lightly, with a yellow taxi and NYPD cruiser usually sat…

Di Maggio's

1038 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, G41 3EB

Di Maggio’s have a reputation for no nonsense US-Italian fare, big flavours and generous portions. Though each branch shares the same evening menu, the Southside branch, its canopied windows overlooking Shawlands Cross, opens earlier at weekends…
