In the calendar wasteland that is January to March, everyone needs a special day out to look forward to.
Today’s Big Deal from House for an Art Lover offers just that, making it a perfect Christmas gift idea. This day out for two includes a two course lunch with tea or coffee in the Art Lover’s Café.
Designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, House for an Art Lover is set in Bellahouston Park and has themed gardens to explore. It also includes an arts centre and a gift shop that’s an Aladdin’s Cave of Mackintosh-themed goods.
Lunch for two
Available noon to 3.30pm, Monday to Friday, this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy the soup of the day with bread plus a dish from the light bites section of the menu.
The chefs at the cafe use ingredients from local suppliers to create innovative and mouth-watering dishes.
The exact selection available from day to day may vary. However, a few examples of what may be on offer include the smoked salmon bagel with pickled cucumber and crème fraiche, the black pudding with poached eggs, sautéed onions, mushrooms and farmhouse bread or the Thai chicken salad with baby gem, carrot and toasted cashew nut dressing.
The Art Lover’s Café has plenty of admirers. Taken from the café’s 5pm Dining page, this review explains why:
‘From the moment you see the building you know you are in for something special. Having the opportunity to sit in a Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed building and eat an exceptional lunch makes this one of the best places to eat in the west of Scotland. The menu has a good choice of courses and never fails to impress in the quality and presentation. The service is always courteous and efficient… When you have finished your lunch do not fail to make a visit to the house to see the amazing designs of CRM. Going to the Art Lovers’ Café for lunch offers an experience that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime.’
It’s not every day that the Big Deal provides a once in a lifetime experience but we are very happy that people enjoy the House for an Art Lover.
Even if you are a regular visitor, this offer would be perfect for a catch-up with a friend or you could use it to treat a family member for Christmas.
Delicious food in stylish Rennie Mackintosh surroundings.
