About Urban Bar & Brasserie
I stopped going to this restaurant after being a regular for many years as I felt the food and service had deteriorated. I believe they now have a new chef and I cannot praise the food or service we got high enough. It was excellent value as it was a fixed price lunch and the food was delicious.The restaurant seems to have gone back to the excellent place it always was. Thank you for a lovely meal.
My friend gave me a voucher for a two course dinner with prosecco for two.... And it was outstanding. I had the pate, then crab and chilli linguine. We changed our prosecco to white wine which we prefer, and they were fine with this. The extra drinks we bought on top of the voucher were extremely reasonable. Can't wait to go back!
Modern eclectic city centre restaurant
Glasgow’s Urban Bar and Brasserie, formerly home to the Bank of England’s Scottish headquarters, looks a million dollars. Located on St Vincent Place in the city centre, the food is eclectic, and the décor blends old school elegance with a contemporary edge. Urban Bar and Brasserie is perfect for both entertaining clients and dining with relatives, either for lunch or dinner.
Locally sourced ingredients
Wherever possible, Glasgow’s Urban Bar and Brasserie uses locally sourced and seasonal ingredients to execute the dishes of the executive chef David Clunaf. Awarded two AA Rosettes within months of opening, Urban Bar and Brasserie offers a range of dishes like the starter of spiced tomato & roast pepper soup with coconut or main courses such as rump of lamb with sweet roast garlic and thyme fondant potato and fillet of mature Scotch beef with sundried tomato, garlic & herb butter & chips.
Some of the dishes, like the fillets of bream teriyaki steamed in paper with pak choi, ginger, garlic and sticky rice, take their cue from further afield. Add in a well thought out wine list and it’s no surprise that the Urban Bar and Brasserie has plenty of regular fans in Glasgow’s city centre.
