Talk of the Town: The Gannet reopens on Argyle Street

The Gannet returns today. The Finnieston restaurant has a renewed sense of purpose, a modified dining room and changed opening hours.

They launched a community kitchen during lockdown that helped provide meals for the most vulnerable in the city. The rest of the time was spent recharging their creative batteries, spending time with the family, then connecting with the producers that provide the building blocks for the restaurant’s menus and thinking about the future.

There was also a cooking video for the Glasgowist Facebook page.
