The Fish People Café was recommended to us by trusted sources, one of whom had invited me to be a "witness" (witness in Scots apparently means oldest expert left standing not someone in the witness protection program) at a conference convened by an energetic historian at the University of Strathclyde. Don't ask, it's not rainy/sleety/haily/snowy/floody Paris, it's summer, it's sunny, 70 degree Glasgow. Anyway, their oysters and fish soup, all with locally sourced seafood were exemplary. The bill; sorry, the historian genius who dreamed the conference up, paid.
The Ingram Wynd was another place our host suggested, which touted Scottish food in cool surroundings. Colette and I had gravlax, haggis, salmon and sticky pudding and were quite pleased. Our host, again, picked up the bill.
The Ross Priory is a Conference Center that rivals the now sold-off (by the State of Colorado) but not forgotten Given Institute in Aspen that the University of Colorado Psychiatry Department used for so many years; but that's another story. Our coffee breaks were enhanced by great cookies and the one lunch I attended featured herring and onion rollmops, salmon, split multi-pea soup and a great strawberry tart. Cost = no idea. View over Lock Lomond = priceless.
Gamba represented our last real meal in Glasgow before heading back to puddled Paris. Again, they featured the great products of the seas and rivers of Scotland - hand-dived scallops, halibut with mussels and a chocolate tart with peanut ice cream. Except for spotty service (which they told us not to tip for since it was rather haphazard) our meal was great and the price right = 101.90 pounds.
