Ever wondered how Glasgow got its reputation as a style city?
Step forward Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the man who put Glasgow style on the global map.
Get to grips with the artist’s genius thanks to today’s Big Deal on lunch for two at the Art Lover’s Café in House for an Art Lover.
Located in tranquil Bellahouston Park, House for an Art Lover is a stylish arts centre and welcoming cafe as well as being a fine example of Mackintosh’s ground-breaking architecture.
The interior of the café is very airy and elegant.
Obviously, we can’t make any promises about the weather over the next few months. However, if a little spring sunshine does put in an appearance then lunch on the terrace is always a pleasure.
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, this gives a great idea of the choices on offer:
Hot smoked salmon, kohlrabi remoulade and rye bread
Classic chicken and bacon salad with crisp croutons and aged Parmesan
Eggs Stornoway – black pudding with poached eggs, hollandaise sauce on English muffin
Chickpea and chilli burger and beetroot chutney
Waldorf salad with blue cheese, pear, walnut and chicory
Comté cheese and onion quiche
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 to a memorable lunch.
Delicious food in stylish Rennie Mackintosh surroundings.
