Jews in Scotland no longer need to drive hundreds of miles to either Manchester or London to experience kosher eating out as a new restaurant has opened in Glasgow.
L'Chaim's Restaurant was set up under the auspices of Lubavitch of Scotland and run by Rabbi Chaim Jacobs and his wife Sora and aims to attract local residents as well as tourists travelling to the Scottish capital.
The upscale restaurant offers a traditional menu including salt beef, chicken and other haimishe dishes with prices starting from £19.50 for a three course set menu.
Currently open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings, L'Chaim's will be extending its opening hours during the summer months and is also open at other times for private catering events.
