Popular Glasgow restaurant Rioja to return with Michelin-starred chef Miguel Angel Major

Spanish Michelin-starred chef Miguel Angel Major, working at the world-famous restaurant El Bulli, will take over Glasgow’s popular restaurant Rioja with a new look. Major will pioneer the concept of a restaurant that will offer a combination of fine dining and casual dining.

“Scotland, its people, its produce, and its history have always piqued my interest. The menu at Rioja will link the high quality of Scottish products to the history of Spanish cuisine. Our food will constantly evolve and have no borders – a one-of-a-kind celebration of produce, with flavours that showcase innovative techniques while maintaining respect. I simply can’t wait to get started,” Major said.

Rioja will continue to focus on tapas food with a redesigned dining concept, with an expanded restaurant capacity of 60 people. Chef Major in the kitchen will display an ever-expanding and uninhibited gastronomic vision. The menu will constantly evolve and Miguel and his team will use innovative techniques about the products produced.
