As one of Glasgow’s longest standing restaurants, it is wonderful to learn that Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery, located on busy Argyle Street, still offers a fantastic dining experience.
Over 23 years the restaurant has built up a solid reputation as “the place to go” for seafood lovers. Des Mullan, Operations Director of Two Fat Ladies, describes why the restaurant remains a success,
“I think we are pretty accessible and there is nothing we do or sell that could be described as ‘overly foodie’, we don’t put words on the menu that nobody knows what they mean. We try to keep things as simple and clean as we can”.
So there you have it, the key to a fantastically successful restaurant is to give your customers what they want – excellent food without the fuss.
They work with only one supplier to ensure that their fare is 100% fresh and feel that this approach appeals to diners looking for local produce. It clearly works as in 2010 the restaurant was named “Best Posh Nosh” in the Glasgow Restaurant awards.
With a cozy atmosphere and the option of a private dining room with a glass wall so that you can see into the kitchen, diners can get a real overview of how confident Two Fat Ladies are in what they serve up. To give you an idea of what is on the menu, how about flash fried west coast scallops with Stornoway black pudding and smokie cream, cress salad for starters?; followed by fillets of sea bream and Indian spiced mussel and savoy cabbage cream? If seafood is not your thing, don’t worry, you can choose from various meat dishes ranging from the trusty fillet mignon to warm smoked duck salad in a pomegranate vinaigrette.
Be sure to book a table next time you are dining out in Glasgow– you won’t be disappointed.
