What they say:
Ibérica has found the home of its first venue in Scotland - on Glasgow's St Vincent Street in a former bank. The Spanish restaurant is headed by two Michelin-starred chef Nacho Manzano and will serve a selection of hot and cold tapas as well as having a bar menu which includes hand cut jambon and olives. The interiors have been dreamt up by Spanish designer Lazaro Rosa Violon and have a sumptuous vintage feel with plush leather seats and old maps on the walls.
What we say:
Yes, Ibérica is a chain restaurant but, with some seriously strong interiors and an excellent, Michelin-star worthy menu, it's a formula that is worth repeating. The first opening in Scotland, on Glasgow's St Vincent Street, is in a former bank which has had a swanky face lift giving it an old-school vibe, perfect for after-work drinks or a special meal. The menu has been curated by a two-Michelin-starred chef so the food is bound to be top notch and the Glasgow site will have a few specials unique to that location, for example a Botillo from El Bierzo - a Spanish take on haggis.
