The famous French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre said that ‘to read a poem in January is as lovely as to go for a walk in June’.
Yeah, that’s cute JP, but try asking your friends, spouse or partner whether they would prefer to hear a poem or go out for a steak dinner over the next few weeks.
We’re guessing that the poetry book is staying on the shelf.
It may not rhyme but today’s Big Deal on a steak dinner for two at Cottiers in the West End will be music to anyone keen to brighten up the start of 2013.
Feast for the eyes
A converted church, Cottiers restaurant, bar and theatre on Hyndland Street has long been one of the jewels of Glasgow’s West End.
A charming mix of shimmering gold ceilings, original salvaged church chairs and bespoke, handcrafted gilt mirrors, the restaurant on the first floor is a feast for the eyes.
Add in a treat for the taste buds and you’ve got a night to remember – especially if you choose to continue your evening in the lively bar after your meal.
Rib eye steak
This is a simple but tasty deal which means that two people can each enjoy a 6 oz rib eye steak, cooked the way you like it and served with either a peppercorn or Béarnaise sauce.
As well as dauphinoise potatoes and seasonal greens, the offer includes a 175ml glass of house wine per guest.
Head chef Jonathan MacFarlane, formerly of The Ubiquitous Chip, is in charge of the kitchens at Cottiers and he is a dab hand at making the flavours of the finest ingredients shine.
5pm customers are fans. Cottiers has been rated 4/5 by 5pm diners. We liked this quote from a 5pm reviewer. It’s short but says everything:
‘Don’t want everyone to know about this gem! Fantastic food, service, atmosphere. What more could you want?’
