Images reveal inside a 'stylish' new restaurant coming soon to Glasgow. 

Ahead of opening its doors to hungry customers later this month, the team behind the new eatery Hazel have offered visitors a glimpse at its captivating interiors.

A full-size Hazel tree is the centrepiece of the venue, inspired by Glasgow's coat of arms which depicts our city's patron saint, Saint Mungo.

The branches of the tree create a 'dappled light' effect across tables to evoke an outdoor vibe for diners, and the story of St Mungo is further told in lighting depicting the shape of birds, a bell and a fish.

As well as showcasing its decor, the restaurant has also unveiled its debut menu, which includes Mediterranean-inspired dishes and sharing, small, and large plates with a focus on locally sourced, fresh seasonal Scottish ingredients.

The wine and drinks menu includes the restaurant’s signature Hazel 75 cocktail and an indulgent £20 Crossbill 200 Martini, in partnership with Glasgow gin distillery Crossbill. 

As well as regular lunch and dinner service, Hazel will have an express lunch menu to cater for shoppers and office workers in the city centre. 

At the helm will be head chef Eric Avenier, who previously spent six years at The Atlantic Bar and Brasserie, and two years as executive head chef at Mar Hall Hotel. 

Glasgow Times:

He said: “We are immensely proud of Hazel and its first menu, and cannot wait to welcome diners living in and visiting Glasgow. 

“It takes the very best of fresh, locally sourced Scottish ingredients, and infuses them with Mediterranean influence and flair to instantly transport diners to that rich culinary playground but with an unmistakable Scottish twist.  

“We have set out to bring something new and exciting to Glasgow with Hazel, and this menu reflects that. The blend of large and sharing plates caters for classic and modern dining – people will love it!”

The restaurant forms part of the £100 million Love Loan development on George Square and will open alongside the neighbouring AC Hotel Glasgow.

Love Loan will transform the area into a top leisure and residential destination including the Soho House private members club, Flight Club, bars, restaurants, and health and well-being facilities.

Chris Stewart, the owner and CEO of Chris Stewart Group which is behind the project, said: “Love Loan will be one of Glasgow and Scotland’s premier leisure destinations and a symbol of how city centres must evolve to meet modern demand.

"Hazel is a hugely important part of its appeal.”

Hazel will open its doors to the public on November 13.
