The Gorbals

"Best restaurant in the Universe" — Ilan Hall

Owner and Chef Ilan Hall named The Gorbals after a diverse immigrant neighborhood of Glasgow, Scotland, where his father grew up rubbing elbows with neighbors from Pakistan, Russia, India, and Eastern Europe. Like Hall's Israeli Scottish Russian German heritage and The Gorbals' mishmash of cultures, the restaurant can't be pigeonholed into a specific background. Instead, it celebrates a joyful cultural synthesis with a pan-ethnic menu of contemporary gourmet small plates and desserts: banh mi poutine mingles with dry-aged burgers, and latkes and applesauce share table space with welsh rabbit and grilled squid. A wine list and a spirits menu complement each dish with rich, complex European vinos, smoky scotches and woodsy bourbons, or perfectly balanced classic cocktails.

Before opening up The Gorbals, Hall cut his culinary teeth as a teenager in the Lorenzo de Medici school’s Apicius program in Florence. He proceeded to hone his chef's knife at esteemed locales such as Charlie Palmer's Aureole New York and Mario Batali's Casa Mono. Most visitors may recognize Hall from his appearance on Bravo TV's Top Chef, where he claimed victory in the second season after defeating all other chefs in unarmed combat.

Reviews

an unorthodox (hello, bacon-wrapped matzah balls!), and daily changing menu that has foodie fans salivating from one exotic pairing to the next.

Beth Schwartz, BlackboardEats

It's weird and fun and a little rough around the edges, but definitely from the heart. ... portions small. But everything has real flavor.
