There is no place I love more than New York, and it seems like someone in Glasgow feels the same way. Tribeca bar & grill is "a little slice of the big apple in the heart of your neighbourhood". Well if you can't go to New York, why not bring New York to Glasgow? The Giffnock restaurant is a popular local haunt, filled with memorabilia, with their very own yellow cab & NYPD car outside, serving up traditional "New Yoik" brunch and "cwafee"!
We arrived early on a Sunday morning to an almost empty restaurant, a warm welcome and a big pot of green tea. They have a huge selection of pancakes, French toast, eggs, sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, American cereals (Lucky Charms!), and their famous Snow Blizzard ice cream shakes. Gordon went for the Varick breakfast - a full Scottish served with French toast and Canadian maple syrup! I very nearly had French toast with Reese's peanut butter and banana but decided to go down the slightly healthier route, and chose the Little Havana omelette. A 5 egg monster stuffed with ham, pulled pork, jalapenos and cheese - it was bigger than my face! I didn't eat again until supper time. Tribeca 1, Christy 0.
You can find the the original New York kitchen at 3 locations throughout the city and a new one in Edinburgh too! Well worth a visit.
