The Gannet is situated in the Finnieston neighbourhood of Glasgow, founded in September 2013 by three friends Ivan Stein, Peter Read and Peter McKenna, with Kevin Dow joining them in 2014.
Head Chef Peter McKenna is as inspiring as he is gifted, creating constantly changing multi-course menus using painstakingly sourced high quality produce. Here at The Gannet, food is sourced from Peter’s network of foragers and farmers, producers and gatherers, herders and hunters.
With no such thing as a typical menu, dishes can range from squid ink, onion & ramson, line caught mackerel with seaweed & horseradish to Herdwick hogget with asparagus & wild garlic… and only ever when in season. Indeed Peter names his dedicated suppliers on their website, supporting many exceptional Scottish producers.
Over the years The Gannet has been awarded many fabulous reviews and accolades including…
2019 Winner of Scottish fine dining restaurant of the year from SLTN.
The Michelin Guide awarded the restaurant a Bib Gourmand 2014 – 2018 and currently feature with the Michelin Plate.
The The Gannet East very nearly open, July 2021, so we shall keep you updated on that too.
Peter sees the Gannet East as a shop window for the Glasgow restaurant where his tasting menu is acclaimed far and wide. For Peter, provenance and suppliers are fundamental to his being, wherever he is. Add his enviable kitchen skills and you have a winning team.
