ESCA & Chisholm 27 Review

  • Rating Rating 3.8/5
    The Librarian and I both like Esca, but we have never dined here before when they were offering a menu that reflected the values of the Gourmet Glasgow festival. This was to be a treat too long delayed! We were joyfully welcomed at the door and shown to our table. The restaurant was already comfortably busy, and a large table opposite was filling as the party assembled. The menu was proffered and The Librarian opted for the Cozze Rustica followed by the Veal Involtini. I would shadow her starter and main with Spezzatino Italia and Zuppa di Pesce. The Mussels were plump fresh and delicious, bathed on a tomato sugo. The veal parcels contained a mixture of forcemeat, garlic and sage and they were presented in the midst of a small pond of tomato cream sauce. My Italian sausage was prettily presented and was also served in the sugo pomodoro. The Zuppa (in this case a fish stew) was as good as any Bouillabaisse I'd expect to be served in Marseilles. So far everything had earned its place on a Gorumet Glasgow menu, and we turned our minds to dessert: tiramisu for the Librarian and ice cream for me. The tiramisu looked and tasted as if it had been prepared somewhere else, but the ice cream was above average. Altogether a good experience and exceptional value for money.
