The ongoing irregular alphabet journey around Glasgow has seem my friend and I meeting for dinner in a restaurant beginning with a different letter of the alphabet each time. The last time was Ketchup way back in November, so tonight was The Lansdowne, or The Lansdowne Bar and Kitchen to give it its full name.
Although The Lansdowne is around 5min walk from home it isn’t somewhere I’ve been that often and it frequently seems to have been re-decorated every time I go. It is a basement bar/restaurant in the quiet, mostly residential Lansdowne Crescent with a dark but spacious layout of booths and leather couches at the front, tables and a conservatory to the rear.
We chose from the Bar Menu (there is a separate Kitchen Menu) and had Burger and Fish and Chips, or:
St Mungo’s Haddock Supper – Served with chunky chips and minted mushy peas or a fresh mixed green salad (for that healthy option!) and
LBK Char Grilled Beef Burger – Served with rocket, beef tomato, fresh mozzerella, carmelised red onion and chunky chips.
Both of which were £8, very good quality and large portions! The Lansdowne is a great little bar, with very modern decor and without the loud music that usually has to dominate such a place (at least no loud music on this particular Monday evening), and I’m stuffed!
