Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

ON THURSDAY and Friday of last week, we took a quick trip to Glasgow to take care of a few things. On Thursday night, after we got back to the hotel, it was late and rainy and a terrible night to decide to go traipsing to the West End to try to find a place to eat. We ended up at Rioja, a tapas restaurant in Finnieston, around 9:30pm and asked if they were still serving, as they closed at 10:00. The hostess checked with the kitchen, who said they would be happy to accommodate us and we’re so happy they did, as the food was delicious. We ordered five or six dishes to share, including pimientos de padrón, berenjena con tartar de salmón, and of course, patatas bravas. When we got home, I looked the place up and discovered that the restaurant is run by a Michelin star chef who previously worked at El Bulli and actually received his first Michelin star in 2017, at Sucede in Valencia, the city in Spain where we lived before moving back to the UK. We’d actually thought about moving to Glasgow before we moved to Spain, and then again recently, but have decided (again) that it’s not for us. The layout is too spread out and not enough people live in the city centre to make it fully functional yet, but it’s getting there. There have been huge changes over the past few years and at some point, I’m sure, we’ll consider it again, and if we ever do end up there, this restaurant will be a regular favourite if it’s still there.

This week’s links include a renovated Tribeca loft and Ibiza’s loveliest village; cosy sweaters for crisp days and much, much more.
