The Romantic poet Keats wrote that autumn was the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.
Had he been born a couple of hundred years later then we are pretty confident that he would have waxed lyrical about the autumn Big Deal menu at the stylish Urban Bar and Brasserie in Glasgow city centre.
Available Sunday to Friday, this mouth-watering Big Deal with Urban Bar and Brasserie on St Vincent Place is for one person to enjoy a starter, main course and dessert from the restaurant’s Big Deal autumn menu:
French onion soup with cider and gruyère croutons
Smoked mackerel with baby capers, micro herbs and lemon crème fraiche
Smooth parfait of chicken livers with red onion chutney and toasted granary bread
Rocket with Provencal olives, roast artichokes and sun blush tomatoes
Cajun chicken breast with sticky rice, honey and ginger cream
Seafood spaghetti with chilli, lime and coriander
Toulouse sausage with rosemary gravy and mustard mash
Puff pastry tart with feta and roast red pepper salsa
Cheeseboard with apricot chutney
Rosewater crème brulée
Caramel and honeycomb ice cream with warm chocolate sauce
Apple and cinnamon fool
There is also the option to pay a £5 supplement per person and relish an eight ounce, prime Scottish sirloin steak with chips and peppercorn sauce as your main course.
City centre elegance
Once home to the Bank of England’s Scottish HQ, the Urban Bar and Brasserie retains its handsome good looks. With its wood panels, stunning flower displays and ornate cornicing, it is rather an elegant city centre spot and this Big Deal is designed to let you see what they do best.
