23 Restaurants in Glasgow: American

Why are American restaurants popular in Glasgow?

Glaswegians have always looked across the Atlantic for a bit of cultural inspiration. Perhaps it comes from the city's history as a port with close links to America, or perhaps it's the locals' traditional fondness for country and western music. Now, though, Glasgow's American restaurants are taking the city by storm. The food of the US has developed hugely in recent years, from the burger bars we are familiar with to a much more diverse cuisine. America is a huge country and this is reflected in the extraordinary variety of dishes now being served in American restaurants in Glasgow.

    Classic cooking and new favourites from the USA

    Most of us probably first experienced US cuisine in the form of the humble hamburger. It would be fair to say that the US has raised this familiar staple to something of an art form and you will find any number of versions being offered in American restaurants in Glasgow. Now, though, we are beginning to see a lot more regional dishes on the menus. Tex-Mex, for example, has become hugely popular but the variety does not stop there.

    From north to south and coast to coast in Glasgow's American restaurants

    A visit to most American restaurants in Glasgow might include fabulous meat dishes such as the famous New York strip steak. There is also chowder and seafood from Boston and New England, while Chicago is rightly famous for its pork bellies and ribs. New Orleans has some great dishes, such as jambalaya, po' boys and crawfish, while the Cuban cuisine of Miami is also beginning to make its way onto menus. California has some of the most sophisticated cooking in the US and is known for its innovation and many fusion dishes, with inspiration coming from all around the Pacific. All of these and more can be found on the menus of Glasgow's American restaurants.

    Glasgow takes to American restaurants

    Another feature of eating out in the US is the quality of service that can be expected. There is no doubt that good service is part of the experience of eating in America and that commitment to excellent customer service can be seen in American restaurants opening in Glasgow. Glaswegians can be a demanding lot and they expect the best when spending their hard-earned cash, so it's no wonder American restaurants prosper in Glasgow.
