Picasso once said that ‘some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot; others transform a yellow spot into the sun’.
Take up today’s Big Deal on a late lunch at the Urban Bar and Brasserie and you’ll be the picture of sunny contentment.
Working on the assumption that there will be some summer sun over the next few months, today’s Big Deal offers a menu to be enjoyed on those lazy days when anytime is lunch time.
Available Sunday to Friday, from 2.30pm to 5pm, the deal is for a starter, main course and delicious dessert per person.
Featuring excellent seasonal fare, prepared with Urban’s customary flair and sophistication, the summer menu is as follows:
Soup du jour
Beef tomato, mozzarella and black olive salad with basil & pine nuts
Smooth parfait of chicken livers with red onion marmalade & oatcakes
Panko-breaded grey sole fillet with crushed minted peas, chips & balsamic
Marinated breast of chicken with Israeli couscous, rocket & parmesan
Crisp fried fillet of bream with gem lettuce, anchovies, bacon & garlic croutons
Comte with apricot chutney
Raspberry & rosemary crème brûlée
Strawberries with vanilla mascarpone
City centre elegance
With its wood panels, stunning flower displays and ornate cornicing, Urban Bar and Brasserie is rather an elegant city centre spot and this Big Deal is designed to let you see what they do best.
