Part of Glasgow’s boutique group of Two Fat Ladies restaurants, the city centre branch, like its sister operations, specialises in Scottish seafood. While prime fish and shellfish from the waters of the West Coast unite all the Two Fat Ladies, they each have their own character. The Blythswood Street branch is small but neat, chic and perfectly formed. It is also very usefully located for visits to the nearby King’s Theatre.
The Two Fat Ladies in Glasgow’s city centre features menus which are primarily but not exclusively seafood based. One of the most popular dishes is the Two Fat Ladies’ daily changing fish platter but it faces a strong challenge from another customer favourite: seared dived scallops served with Stornoway black pudding and a smoked haddock and chive cream. In general, the dishes are kept simple. An oven baked halibut fillet might come with a smoked cheddar and parsley crust and a Dijon mustard and button mushroom cream but you are just as likely to find a baked sole accompanied by nothing more than a lemon and parsley butter. Most people visit Two Fat Ladies in Glasgow’s city centre for the seafood but options like the Highland reserve fillet of beef topped with Strathdon blue, brioche crouton and a rich Madeira jus are always on the menu.
