OX And Finch Operators Get Go-Ahead For Two-In-One City Centre Restaurant

THE operators of acclaimed Glasgow eatery Ox and Finch have been given permission to convert a historic City Centre building into a restaurant with “two different food offerings”.

Planners have finally approved a proposal made by Scoop Restaurants in 2017 for internal changes to vacant B-listed premises at 68 Miller Street.

A heritage statement provided with the application explained: “It is the applicant’s intention to form a new restaurant providing the customer with a choice of two different food offerings between the ground floor and basement which will be reflected in the design.

“The proposals account for a complete refurbishment of the internal spaces along with some minor external alterations.

The two food areas will be linked internally but customers will also be able to access both directly from Miller Street.

The document continues: “This is an exciting business opportunity for a dynamic operator which will be a benefit to the City Centre whilst enhancing Glasgow’s acclaimed hospitality scene on a national level.”

The planning approval comes as Ox and Finch’s south-east Asian spin-off Ka Pao gets a permanent home in the West End.
