Oh, the Plywood Report is looking very fresh today. Might we suggest grilled, medium rare, sans sauce? Don't forget to hit the tip jar on your way out. Thank you. Come again.
Despite the eclectic mix of ethnicities attached to the project, Hall states that he is staying away from “fusion” or “new age” cuisine. Rather, he describes the menu as “bits and pieces of what I grew up with and learned. I’m not going to mix things together - I just want to make really, really good dishes simply." That said, dishes slated to be served like haggis burgers, gefilte fish ‘n chips, and bacon-wrapped matzoh balls seem to fit firmly in fusion territory. Perhaps oddball fusion category? Nonetheless, pending a couple more permits, The Gorbals is set to open mid-August. And, to add to the oddball/randomness, the restaurant will also sell alcohol to go, courtesy of an off-sell permit.
