Concierge.com's insider take:
Seafood from Scotland's west coast is the main draw at this small city center restaurant, where the kitchen prizes simplicity over fussy food. Hand-dived scallops come seared with Stornoway black pudding, while the monkfish is wrapped in bacon, and that's as complicated as it needs to get when the fish is this fresh. The restaurant has nothing to do with the old BBC cooking show; it's named after bingo caller's slang ("Two Fat Ladies, 88") for the address of the original branch, which is only ten minutes' walk from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum at 88 Dumbarton Road (44-141-339-1944).
Closed daily from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
