Breaking with Big Deal convention, we’re not going to do any silly gags or word play to introduce this offer.
Instead, here is a customer comment left on the Urban Brasserie’s entry on the 5pm Restaurant site. It was posted a few days ago by a diner who had booked her table through 5pm:
‘Superb. Simply one of the best restaurants in Glasgow, fantastic 5pm deals. Food delicious, service first class, just a lovely dining experience.’ Rating 5/5
We can’t improve on that so we’ll just give you the nuts and bolts of this great Urban Brasserie Big Deal.
The offer is for a three course meal from the Signature Dish menu at the award-winning Urban Brasserie on St Vincent Place.
It’s a very handsome restaurant. Once home to the Bank of England’s Scottish HQ, the Urban Bar and Brasserie has retained its good looks in its new role as one of Glasgow’s best loved restaurants.
Featuring wood panels, stunning flower displays and ornate cornicing, it is an elegant city centre spot and this Big Deal is designed to let you see what they do best.
The food at Urban Brasserie has won two AA Rosettes and the restaurant is a firm favourite with 5pm users. This offer’s menu comprises many of the most popular dishes which have been served at Urban Brasserie since it opened.
