In a previous incarnation, the elegant Restaurant at Blythswood Square was a ballroom. These days, all the stylish moves are being made by the chefs.
Five star qualities
The Restaurant is part of the impressive and luxurious Blythswood Square hotel, and the playful, eye-catching red, white and black decor reflects the bold and confident approach to interior design.
It’s a great place to dine, with the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere complementing imaginative and appetising culinary creations.
Today’s Big Deal offers an excellent opportunity to sample exemplary cuisine, with a two course meal for two from the market menu at the Restaurant at Blythswood Square.
Valid seven days a week, bookings are available at a wide choice of times. Note that when the festive frenzy kicks in from the start of December, bookings are only available from Monday to Wednesday.
As the name suggests, the market menu changes with the seasons, emphasising locally-sourced produce. This keeps the ideas and flavours fresh.
Examples from recent menus include:
Watercress & potato velouté with soft herb oil
Thai-style cured salmon with crispy rice, soya and ginger gel
Marinated beef bon bon with pickled shimiji mushrooms and sweet pickled gherkins
Pan fillet of sea bass with spelt risotto, olive tapenade and marinated cherry tomatoes
Braised lamb shoulder with soft & crispy polenta, grelot onion and red wine jus
Orzo pasta with roast red pepper piperade and marinated goats’ cheese
Chocolate & peanut butter brownie with jellied raspberries and vanilla ice cream
Blackberry & cream cheese mousse with poached blackberries, almond filo and apple & lime pate de fruit
Smoked Applewood cheese with quince and oatcakes
Throughout December, the festive menu will be offered in place of the market menu, at no extra cost.
