The Chateaubriand cut of steak is named after the French diplomat and writer François-René, the Vicomte de Chateaubriand.
As well as liking a fine steak, old Franny is said to have introduced Romanticism to French literature.
Toast the Vicomte as you fall in love with today’s Big Deal at Arisaig.
Contemporary Scottish restaurant
A contemporary Scottish restaurant and bar, Arisaig is in Glasgow’s vibrant Merchant Square.
In addition to its stylish dining room, Arisaig has comfy seats in the square’s covered courtyard.
It’s an ideal spot for people-watching while you and a friend enjoy your meal – without the risk of summer showers.
Whether you choose to eat on the covered, cobbled terrace of Merchant Square or in the restaurant itself, you are in for a delicious meal at Arisaig.
Available Sunday to Friday, today’s Big Deal is for two diners to share a magnificent 500g Chateaubriand steak.
Sourced from a Tweed Valley farm, the beef is dry aged for 35 days, and is served with two side orders, two steak sauces and a grill garnish.
A bottle of the house white, red or rosé is included in the offer.
If one of you likes your steak well done and your dining companion prefers it medium rare, there is the option for each diner to have a fillet steak, cooked to their specification, instead of the Chateaubriand.
With more than 600 reviews on its 5pm page, Arisaig has no shortage of admirers:
‘Love to sit here in Merchant Square and this restaurant never fails with a lovely selection of Scottish food which tastes great!’
‘Food was excellent, staff were very good. We will be back….’
This offer would be ideal for a luxurious Sunday lunch, a spectacular evening meal or a very decadent weekday lunch.
The courtyard is a romantic spot to share a steak or you could buy a couple of vouchers and enjoy dinner with friends.
Arisaig has long been a champion of everything that is great about Scotland’s food and drink.
Celebrate our magnificent larder and enjoy a splendid Chateaubriand steak from the Tweed Valley with today’s Big Deal from Arisaig.
