The much-loved Baby Grand on Elmbank Gardens has just launched its new menu.
And, to use a technical cooking term, it’s a belter.
One of Glasgow’s longest-running and most welcoming piano bars, Baby Grand is tucked away by Charing Cross railway station and well worth seeking out.
If you haven’t been before, this Big Deal is the perfect introduction.
Bottle of wine
Available Sunday to Thursday, 7pm to 10pm, this offer is for two people to each have one of the following main courses plus a bottle of house wine to share:
Chicken galantine – haggis-stuffed chicken, celeriac purée, creamed Savoy cabbage and bacon
Rump of lamb – served with curried potato and cauliflower, cumin and mint yoghurt
Pan-fried sea bass – with mussel, tomato, spinach and chorizo broth
Sea trout confit – with crushed new potatoes and crab, lemon and chive beurre blanc
Baked wild mushroom and leek crepes – with a blue cheese Béchamel
Crispy halloumi – served with red pepper hummus, roast pepper and olive salad

Charing Cross institution
For over thirty years, Baby Grand has been drawing customers to its well hidden location by Charing Cross rail station.
From early morning coffees to late night cocktails, often accompanied by some smooth tunes on the baby grand piano, the bar, restaurant and supper club has something to offer everyone.
It’s a cosmopolitan hang-out and, fingers crossed, if the sun is shining then you might be able to make like our Continental cousins and eat al fresco.
With three decades under its belt, Baby Grand has built a large following of loyal customers and is also still attracting new fans. This is what a couple of recent visitors had to say on the restaurant’s 5pm entry:
‘I really like this place. With the piano playing in the background, it’s great for the ambiance. Food was lovely, had good size portions. Would return and recommend to friends’ Rating 5/5
‘Excellent. Went to Baby Grand with friends as we were going to The Hydro which is only short walk away. The service was excellent. Got shown to our table right away. Service was quick with no long waiting times between courses. Presentation was excellent. I’ve been here on numerous occasions and would definitely go back. All the staff were pleasant and there was a pianist playing.’ Rating 5/5
The evenings are slowly but surely getting lighter and warmer.
Make the most of the changing seasons with today’s Big Deal on dinner for two at the Baby Grand.
