The Ivy Buchanan Street to open in Glasgow this summer

The Ivy Collection is set to expand into Glasgow with the opening of the Ivy Buchanan Street later this summer, the group's second Scottish opening.

Located at 106 Buchanan Street and set across two floors in what was formerly a Nationwide bank, plans were submitted for the brasserie in 2017. The 222-cover restaurant joins a sister site in Edinburgh.

As well as the main restaurant, the Ivy Buchanan Street will feature two onyx bars, a private dining space for events, and outdoor seating. The all-day menu will be similar to the other sites, with dishes such as heritage tomato and feta salad with avocado, watermelon, pistachio and olives; lobster linguine; and chargrilled halloumi with Padrón peppers.

The site will be overseen by head chef Brian Scanlan and general manager Kevin Lightbody.

Baton Berisha, managing director at the Ivy Collection, said: "We are very excited to be opening our second Scottish restaurant this summer, bringing a touch of Ivy magic to Glasgow. We have a fantastic team in place and a beautiful building at 106 Buchanan Street."

The Ivy Collection comprises 32 brasseries across the UK.
