A modern Scottish steakhouse is set to open in Merchant City this Spring, bringing top quality produce, expertly crafted cocktails and opulent interiors to Glasgow city centre.

Set to open next month, The Merchant Steakhouse will take over the former Canteen 58 unit on Ingram Street, right in the heart of Glasgow’s vibrant Merchant City. Dedicated to modern Scottish influences, the plush new restaurant is set to serve top quality, dry-aged Scotch beef, premium wines and signature cocktails all with a nod to modern Scotland.

The decadent split-level venue will serve locally sourced and freshly prepared dishes, with a focus on Scottish provenance and presentation, working with ABR Fine Foods to source top quality beef from Millers of Speyside, direct from the Highlands. Serving only eight premium cuts of meat with 28 and 45 day dry-aged Miller Aberdeen Angus, The Merchant Steakhouse will be a must for any steak fan.

Under the expert helm of executive chef William Lee, formerly of Michelin-starred and Rosette venues, the craft menu will offer Scottish flair and a modern perspective on dining, with gourmet steaks, seasonal flavours and memorable dining experiences.

The Merchant Steakhouse will breathe new life into modern Scottish culture, with prominent features throughout the restaurant from Mark Hogarth, Creative Director at Harris Tweed. The world renowned brand will bring Harris Tweed soft furnishings to The Merchant Steakhouse, with the venue undergoing a complete sleek and stylish transformation.
